Why I've Never Understood the "Course is Soft, Short Hitters are Screwed" Augusta Oath

Alright, maybe the title is a little off. I understand that when the course is wet and soft, like Augusta is projected to be this week, the ball isn't going to roll as far thus making it easier for big hitters to bomb it out there and have shorter irons into greens.

My point is two-fold.

First, when the course is soft and wet, throwing a nine-iron into a green where Jimmy Buntsadriver is hitting seven doesn't matter as much. If it's wet, a seven will stop nearly the same way a nine will. Hit, bounce, check, spin. If the greens are hard, this isn't necessarily the case.

My other point is a little more big-picture, not just subjective to Augusta. Aren't short hitters used to being at this disadvantage? If you hit the ball short of the tee, haven't you always battled a way to edge out the guys that can bomb it over a Wal-Mart? I know that Zach Johnson did this last year, relying on his wedge game to out-perform the big hitters ability to throw a three-iron really close. I just feel that short hitters are ALWAYS battling this, so why does it make a difference if the course is wet or hard? It isn't like the problem ever really changes.

Mike Weir, Zach Johnson, these guys just overcome the problem by having a superb week with their best weapon. If you're Donatello, no way are you going to switch to nunchucks.

If I remember correctly, it was pretty wet the year that Weir won. Let's be honest, 9 times out 10 it's going to come down to putting anyway.
