At the end of the day, as you know, it comes down to the final pairings playing number 18. Spectators are at a serious disadvantage on this hole, which starts way down in the valley and doglegs right steeply up to the clubhouse. If you're down low, you can't see what's happening at the green. If you're greenside, you miss the tee shots and you probably can't see the players in the fairway.
Well, you can't. But I can see everything, including some spectacular sunsets, from my bench, 20-foot-high in the reporters' tower, just left of the green.
Trust me, it's great.
