This Isn't Confusing At All

As you probably know, the Presidents Cup kicks off next week at Harding Park, the municipal jewel in the middle of beautiful San Francisco. What you may not have heard of is that the greens got scorched during the summer because one of the men fertilizing isn't so good at fertilizing.

Now, this news comes out ... the course the players will face isn't really what you'd play if you went to tee it up with some buddies.

The first order of business in preparing to watch 24 of the world's finest players roam our little municipal track: Forget the customary order of holes. PGA Tour officials, in an effort to increase the odds that matches reach Harding's signature closing stretch, have rerouted the course for the Presidents Cup. So the event will feature the following sequence of holes.

Front nine: 10-11-12-13-4-5-6-2-3

Back nine: 14-8-15-16-17-18-1-7-9

Honestly, did they just toss a bunch of numbers in a hat and draw them out randomly? I think that might not be a bad move for 2010 so people can stop thinking golf isn't a sport.

I don't see why they stop here. Maybe just each hole at a different golf course. They could play Harden Park's first hole, the Olympic Club Ocean Course number two and maybe the Lakes third. Then, drive down to Pasatiempo to play the fourth and maybe the fifth could be the game I play daily, called "try and chip the ball over the couch and stop it before it goes into the kitchen." I'm not gonna lie, I'm tough to beat on that hole.

Shane, that course set up actually flows about as well as the normal route, I've played that track ~50x. Don't get the rationale though, the hole that's normally #18 was by far the least popular with the players when Tiger and Daly battled it out there a few years back. Plenty of room for corporate tents on that hole though so I guess there's my answer.

Side note, on your post from a couple weeks ago where the guy goes ape shit (who can blame him) on the million dollar Hole in one, the guy that tackles him on the driving range? Former BYU QB Robbie Bosco.
