Hoch Critical of Greensboro Course
'The rough (on tour) this year has been less than in almost other year I can remember, other than a drought,' Hoch said. 'It's a joke. Let's just have the whole tour for the long hitters and not worry about accuracy.
'This has always been a tough course. That's one of the main reasons I came here, because I figured this is about the only place I could find any rough.'
Defending champion Hal Sutton agreed. 'I like decent rough, because it punishes you if you it off line,' he said. 'I think there should be a price to pay if you hit it off line.'
PGA Tour tournament director Mark Russell defended the rough, saying it is 2-1/2 inches high and likely will grow another inch by Sunday.
'We think it is very penal, but in the past it has been higher,' he said. 'The feedback from the players is they did not want the rough as high as it has been in the past.'
