I would like to think someone at WGT has suggested what I’m about to say as it could be very embarrassing for WGT when the finals are live to people around the world including the USGA and Pinehurst Golf Club in Las Vegas.
The 4th hole at Pinehurst on WGT is 565 yards long which is 30 yards longer than it was used at the U.S Amateur 2019, no professional has played that hole with that yardage as a par 4, not even at the U.S Open.
It’s now time for WGT to fix this issue which has been around for quite a few years, you can’t have the finalists in Las Vegas play from that tee box as it would be very embarrassing for WGT especially with USGA people in attendance and watching online.
WGT should be using the hard and medium tee boxes which are what the USGA have used this year and at the previous U.S Open, it cant be that difficult for a computer programmer to fix this, delete the hardest tee box and assign the tiers to the correct tee box using the three that remain.
Im only thinking this from a business perspective, why annoy the USGA and Pinehurst Golf Club, it’s a no-brainer in my opinion
