LEV­EL­LING THE PLAY­ING FIELD

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

This nar­row­ing of the fair­ways is ex­actly what we faced at the Open Cham­pi­onship at Carnoustie in 1975. They re­ally pinched them in the fur­ther out you got. Some sec­tions were as tight as 10 me­tres across! That was fine for shorter hit­ters, but the longer guys had to lay up or hit the driver very straight. I thought it was fair. Each time I heard some­one com­plain, I knew that was one less player I had to beat.
