Changes to the Congressional golf course since the last U.S. Open-6/15
CSN Washington dot com. When you get charged were making short courses ready for the US open what immediately. Comes to your mind what you what you try to. Well the first time here congressional was about twenty years ago and we had to rebuild all the greens a lot of -- to the wrong way and uphill shots. They never would have gotten an open if we hadn't. We designed all the greens and dropped seventeen out of eighteen album reposition all the bunkers. The major grating in the fairways. And added -- We're trying to make it championship tests. And I think that's we did for 97 but -- we've -- to do more for this year. And what -- the major changes in your mind coming off -- 97 and get ready for -- -- 97. We really. Got the course ready and it didn't make many changes that those are the days when they just had a set He. Now we headed -- because Mike Davis has is flexibility so. When you talk about 95 assembly 500 yards it's only it's at least 300 yards because Mike likes to move some tees up some back. So we had -- they've built a new tees in order accommodate his set up. That we had to sit in the back of sixteen Green -- reverse. The tenth hole I would've gotten the open that we can -- -- because the noise factor was such in 97 that a bother the players. Also the the late. From nine to ten was almost too far and is very difficult to get the players through the crowd. So I think that changed -- got the open back here congressional.
