A Course Moving In The RIGHT Direction

In this day and age of near-8000 yard courses with hip-high first cut rough, it's nice to see a great course moving back to an era of past glory. Southern Hills, the host of this weekend's PGA Championship, is apparently in fine fettle, prompting Geoff Shackelford to proclaim,

"I can't state enough what a great transformation this course has seen in recent years with tree removal and trimming, bunker renovation and the return of short grass throughout the course..."
Wow - maybe we'll even see some low scores this week! That would be a nice change of pace.

My pick to win? Hard to bet against Tiger - no majors this year, and he looked absolutely unbeatable last week at Firestone.
