During Thursday’s Golf Channel telecast of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage, announcer Peter Oosterhuis lauded the conditions of Harbor Town Golf Links and the people responsible. His compliment came after John Daly elected to putt from the closely mown area behind the 13th green rather than chip. Daly’s effort from approximately 40 feet, 20 of which was off the putting surface, curled just wide of the cup and he tapped in for par.
“You have to give some credit the Jonathan Wright the golf course superintendent and his guys. Those fringes are so smooth a player can use a putter and get a great result; the course is in excellent shape,” Oosterhuis said.
