I think this year's open venue was fantastic. It's one of my favorite places to see a tournament. It's a course that places a value on shot making and creativity not just on length alone. Pinehurst #2 is another prime example.

I like to see the best challenged because I believe it brings out their best. The first 3 days of the open were good examples of a good test of golf, but what happened on Sunday? Could the USGA not see it coming? Could the pins have been moved to more reasonable locations? Could a bit more water have been applied over night? Sure a train wreck is something you have to watch, but not nearly as enjoyable as a couple of players matching each other shot for shot like this year's Masters.
