they use them for the uspga, which is still a major
they used a great course - whistling straits, last year ( it was built by the king of toilets in the US ( toilet magnate
) , who i believe was in plans to buy the old course hotel at st. andrews
it was a magnificent course, something like 7400 - 7500y long, but the guyz still destroyed
it with 8 or 9 under par at the end , with a 3 man play-off between singh, leonard ( short hitter ) & dimarco
problem was there was little wind to protect it & even huge yardage was no defense - it probably needs a little narrower fairways to get it down to -3 or -4 winning total
it's coming back for the pga in a few years, but will need to be toughened up efore usga take the open
