i like a course that makes you think of the best odds and then executing a shot.
With that tight set-up you get quite the opposite. Your choice is hit the fairway right here or be severely punished. The punishment in a well layed out golf course is that you have a cruddy angle to that day's hole location. In Hole 1 above the bunker is [should be] out of play completly. Had they mown fairway and given the hole its intended width a player electing to take on that fairway bunker would be rewarded with a better angle into right side hole locations.
Wide fairways still reward accuracy as there is a spot within the larger spot to hit the ball. A la Augusta National. Though still in the fairway your options can be severly limited if played to the wrong spot in the fairway.
The best players in the world playing sideways with a wedge out of the rough holds no interest for me.
But the USGA has let equipment run amuck and now must go to these excesses to "protect par."
