Product Description

Used for PGA Professional:

Suzann Pettersen – 2011

Course Description:

The par-72 course was set by the Ladies Golf Union (LGU) at 6,490 yards (5,934 m), 931 yards (851 m) shorter than the par-71 set-up for the 2007 Open Championship.

The short set-up of the course was criticized by several notable golfers and golf commentators. ESPN golf commentator and former LPGA pro Jane Crafter called the LGU “out of touch” with how current women players can play. Defending champion Yani Tsung commented that the famous hole number 18 was set up so that it “put all of the bunkers out of play, put all of the burns out of play.” The course groundskeeper agreed that the women had been given “a watered-down version” of Carnoustie and that he did that intentionally after receiving too much criticism for a difficult set-up for the Open Championship in 1999.
