For Tiger, no comfort at Southern
Question of the Day
Confronted with this argument, Woods admitted the relative weakness of his record on shortish, twisty layouts.
“I understand that. … I understand why people would say it doesn’t suit me like, say, St. Andrews or Torrey Pines,” Woods said, quickly moving away from any potentially negative thoughts. “It certainly does have some movement to it. But you know, we’re all basically playing from the same spots anyways. … I like this golf course.”
It doesn’t like him much, as evidenced by his 71.38 scoring average on Southern Hills in the 1996 Tour Championship (tied for 21st) and 2001 U.S. Open. That doesn’t mean Woods can’t win in spite of Southern Hills; nobody who saw him take apart ill-suited Hoylake with his long irons at last year’s British Open will dismiss him solely on such grounds again.
But if ever a course was Tiger-proofed, it’s Southern Hills.
