Here's what I don't understand. In April, a long and ponderous Augusta National setup quieted the crowds in Amen Corner and produced Zach Johnson's winning score of 289, matching the highest ever at a Masters. At the U.S. Open, in June, a heavily fortified Oakmont made minkeys of the field and a winner of Angel Cabrera at five over par. It seemed inevitable, then, that Carnoustie would be the third leg of the No Red Numbers Slam. I was looking for a winning score of 10 over. As they say in Canada, quel dommage.
