Paul_Sr., I like how you gave all quick access to the u.s. open website.
Can someone explain to me why Tiger is teeing off on Thursday at the 9th hole?
From the layout of the Lake Course I have seen, yes the 9th hole is closest to the clubhouse than the 10th.
But, the walk from one hole to the next I really will be interested in watching will be from the 7th to the 8th? :)
Think about it this way.......70+ players having to walk the length of the 9th to get to the 10th as 70+ players are finishing the front 8 and moving to the 9th......much better to split the tees at 1 & 9..... This happens at another course on tour too. Sorry, but can't remember which one.
Okay, but how are the player to get from the 7th to the 8th hole? The golf course layout on the Lake Course is like a maze. :)
Logistical problem with location of No. 10.
