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.
