A few tournaments in place of a new course? Don't care how you paint that, that's a serious let down. Now we're down to 1 course a year. Lovely. Only 12 months to wait.
Good luck to all the sub 60 average players in those tournaments. Make sure you create lots of excitement for us on the sidelines so we don't fall asleep. Pffft.
Absolutely, Jim, a very serious let down. And how long have they known they couldn't photograph Royal Lytham? Well over a year I would have to think so as to have arranged the shoot in the spring or summer of last year. So, in the interim, wth the money that was to be expended shooting Lytham, why not arrange to shoot another course somewhere, anywhere else? One full HD course a year? Hell, yeah, that's disappointing. Sorry to rain on all that are aglow after the US Open but this news, to me, is jarring, to say the least. Also I feel a bit strung along about the advent of getting the new course and all the trappings of the Open. Admittedly, I shouldn't have taken it for granted it was coming but I, like most, did.
