If early play is any indication, Dubsdread is playing plenty hard enough to please U.S. Golf Association types. Exhibit A: the par-4 fifth hole has been stretched to 509 mean yards and is playing the toughest on property with a 4.272 scoring average. And if all that wasn’t enough to woo the blue jackets, on Thursday Tiger Woods hit driver/fairway wood to the well-guarded putting surface.
The world No. 1 may not be as young as he once was, but one would probably have to go back to his Cypress, Calif. youth to find a par 4 that required a driver/fairway wood combo from Woods.
