Time for LPGA Courses to Get Tough
I read an interesting article on GolfChannel.com today regarding how easy the LPGA is setting up the courses at their tournaments. The author Randall Mell points out the following:
- Three of the six LPGA events played this year were won with 72-hole tournament record scores.
- Four of the six have been won at 20 under or better, five of them at 19 under or better.
- The only exception so far this year was Ha Na JangÛªs win at Royal Adelaide in the ISPS Handa WomenÛªs Australian Open. She won at 10 under.
- The average winning score this year is 20 under par.
