Tiger Is All About Creativity
By Kickntrue on 11/10/08
Tiger Woods spoke about his first USA design and said it will be about creativity, not power. The tips are going to play at 7500 though, so if you feel like a big boy- you may want to bring some power along too.
To encourage walking on the course, which will feature six sets of tees from 5,000 yards to 7,500 yards, there will only be 350 feet of elevation change over the 18 holes, Woods said.

The course will meander through dense forest areas, along streams and around a lake. The design will let players hit a variety of shots without worrying how high or far their ball goes.

On all 18 holes, players will have the option to run shots up to the green along the ground without crossing bunkers or water hazards. The layout is reminiscent of courses built in the first half of the 20th Century by architects like Scotland's Donald Ross or English-born Alister MacKenzie, rather than modern designs by Pete Dye or Jack Nicklaus.
Walking? Is that the thing where you put one of your feet in front of the other? Ugg.. I heard you have to stand up to do that.
