Did 2020 finally show the golf world that Augusta is just a rather average course?


Recommended Posts

DJ destroyed the place and Cam Smith was close.   I used to think it was one of the great courses in the world.  Now - it seems like there are far more challenging courses like Oakmont, Shinnecock Hills, Bethpage Black, Carnoutsie, Winged Foot, St. Andrews, or Whistling Straits.  Oakmont is so much tougher as is Bryson's amazing win at Winged Foot.

 

 

The commentator reminds me of that Sling Blade guy.

No. Augusta and the Masters is about tradition. We all know there are harder courses.

The Op knows next to zero about golf.  Impossible to debate.  Must be trolling hard   Just so glad Bryson was not winning this thing.  His story is wearing me down because all the people tha

Langer beat Hulk Bryson. Good to see that there is more to golf than muscles.

Huh, its pretty clear that April conditions are far different, not to mention Augusta has never been touted at a hard course.  Not to mention some of those "hard" courses you mention are only hard because they bake greens out and grow rough super long.

OP since you are touting Oakmont as more difficult....did anyone shoot 63 this week?

 

As we often see on tour length is not a challenge to these guys. So even playing nearly 7500 yards with virtually no roll off the tee shots was not difficult for them. Then the greens stayed very soft all week and guys were able to just fly it to the hole on virtually every shot.

Being a hard course is not the same as being a great course. I have played most of the courses you mentioned and other than perhaps The Old Course, I prefer Augusta.

This is how I seen it go this week, especially the receptive greens. + DJ played flawless.

No wind and soft greens all week.  Players could aim at the flag where most years they have to restrain themselves.

 

Great course and great event again this year. Deserving champion as he struck the ball so well and only had four bogeys during the week.

Jack was -17 in 1965

 

Ray Floyd was -17 in 1976

 

Overall, since 1990, the scores have been lower and especially more recently.

 

Not surprising as the length is pretty maxed out and players keep hitting it farther. 
 

This year we saw very favorable scoring conditions. 
 

And they aren’t aiming for par to be the winning score out there.

 

Bryson? He barely made the cut ; )

Yeah, let’s start the “Can a 10hcp break 100 at Augusta” threads again, as the course has since become redundant.
