PGA Tour: 2013 Wells Fargo Championship

This is usually a great stop on tour, but the greens are the story this week. They're apparently awful everywhere, and nearly unplayable on 2 holes. So much so, that numbers 8 and 10 will play lift, clean, and place all week.

quote:

The damage was caused by recent resodding of those two greens. Additionally, any ball on either of those greens that is resting on a sod seam may be moved and placed as close as possible to the original spot without resting on a seam, though no closer to the hole. The club implemented large seams that are 4 feet wide and 60 feet long to minimize the amount of shots that would come to rest against one of those seams, but actions still had to be taken to eliminate an unfair disadvantage for those who found that situation.

Yet, the TPC of Louisiana is hated by the Tour players. Didn't they resod because they are hosting a major there later this year?

As a PGA tour player, I'd be pissed that they would make them play in those conditions.

Mickelson playing really well today. On another note, John Peterson is going to mess around and qualify for the a PGA Tour spot for 2014. He's hanging around at Even today, which will keep him in good shape to make the cut again.

Why in the world is this thread anchored? Is the title not good enough?

They should have moved this tournament to a different course. It didn't take a damn rocket scientist to know that the greens were not going to be ready.
