Jim Furyk has expressed great disappointment with Gleneagles Ryder Cup course. The veteran American golfer took one glance at the course & smelled rat immediately. As per the star golfer Europe have engineered the condition deliberately to create an alien environ to catch the Americans while Ryder Cup commences this year.
“I am tad surprised by this set-up. I did not expect to find 8” rough out on the field & overly long as well as overly thick at places”, stated Furyk.
“Being a man who hits ball comparatively accurately whist I am playing good, it does not actually make me mad or anything, yet it has got kind of different feel. Usually, they allow us to get slightly more wild and aggressive in set-up for the match play & you find recoveries. You aren’t going to find ample recovery shots on the course here. It would be extremely fortunate if one gets ball on green from say 160/170/180 yards. You are about to get a very fortunate lie”, he continued.
“In the low-lying regions around the greens, there must be some good fertilizer. I am little surprised with the field condition but not exactly sure whether it favors this side or others. It is just the course & we would go and play it.”
Paul McGinley, Europe’s captain has declined any claim regarding using any special influence in presenting the Centenary PGA Course.
“I would prefer to think that I am playing it just straight back when centers round course set-up”, noted McGinley.
“Honestly speaking, the rough here is comparatively thicker in comparison to the ideal- however, that was not a very calculated decision”, McGinley added in.
“We needed to have rough up yet I feel it’s the growing season that has prolonged & thickened it up a bit more.”
