Quote from: catweazle on May 21, 2007, 11:33:26 AMI was very surprised at the moaning of the players on the difficulties of the course, while I am a useless player myself I do enjoy playing the tougher holes as I get more satisfaction out of getting a par on an index 1 rather than one of the easier holes.The conditions are tough for everyone and surely those pros who are going around with 64/65's every week must enjoy the challenge that a sub 70 round in Adare would be. I thought McGinleys comments on the European Tour set up being too easy and not a sufficent challenge for the majors as spot on. Tiger and Phil apart we have far stronger players than any tour but why has it taken so long for us to win a major, british open....we dont play enough Links courses on the regular tour,US open, masters and us pga the course set up is harder than anything we play over here regularly except maybe for Valderama, so I applaud Adare for making it a test.There is nothing worse for me than seeing Tiger hit it a mile away from the fairway, yet then he hits a short iron beauty from the rough. Straight driving should be rewarded and an errant drive should be punished, the more wayward the drive the deeper the rough should be in my opinion
