How Tough is Bethpage Black, Part Two

"I'm ranked 13th or 14th in the world and I'm not near good enough to play this golf course. There's (sic) so many elevated shots to narrow landings, you can go around here and not hit a fairway." -- Bob Estes, who shot 81 yesterday.

Two of my players in the Doud Pool are Retief Goosen, winner of the US Open at Southern Hills last year and David Duval, the British Open champion. Combined, they shot 17-over par yesterday at Bethpage Black. That's plus-seventeen.
