Player Quotes- (field accounted for 28 Major Championships won)

“It’s a real major, it’s like playing in the U.S. Open or whatever where par is a good score.  So don’t blame guys when they play for the middle of the green here and there because there’s some long holes out there, some tough holes where most of the guys would be extremely happy to be in the middle of the green.  That’s what you have to do at times.”- Bernhard Langer

“Yeah, it’s a U.S. Open caliber golf and scoring, you know.  Like I said, if we had four days of perfect 80-degree weather and 5-mile an hour winds, it still ain’t 12-14 under.”-Scott Dunlap

“Of course they could hold any event here.  You could make this golf course so hard, it’s unbelievable.  They still have a few hundred yards, some back tees, they can tighten these fairways and let the rough grow and you won’t even be able to find a golf ball.”- Bernhard Langer

“The golf course is a magnificent golf course.  Beautiful.  People say it’s always nice and we play with a lot of wind here but the condition of the course is perfect and it’s a great track”- Miguel Angel Jimenez

“It’s so much of a challenge, you know?  Where par every hole means something.  It feels good, it feels great.  Love it because this is what majors should be, you know?  You should feel like it’s a major and it is.  Love it, love it here—absolutely love it.”- Colin Montgomerie
