TPC Avenel is too damn easy!

Last week all we heard about is how tough the course was and how the players got "Shinnecocked". I say TPC Avenel is too damn easy for PGA Tour players. Although I don't hear anyone out there complaining about how easy the course is. These guys get on a difficult course and they complain like there's no tomorrow, but when on courses that they tear up, should they be asking for more of a challenge?

If Charles "Thurston" Howell III can shoot 10 under par with a 28 on the front nine and eight 3's in a row, then this course is too easy. This course is obviously lacking a challenge. Were any of the guys that were under par bellyaching in the clubhouse that they weren't challenged out there? I don't think so.

One of the beautiful things about golf and something the spoiled PGA Tour players take for granted is some courses are challenging some are not. Each week these guys get to play on a different course in immaculate condition that most of us would give an arm and a leg to play on. Yes, last week was tough, yes this week is easy, do your job, don't complain about it, and most of all "shut up and golf!"

I agree, there needs to be a medium between the overly punitive US (and British) Open setups and these PGA Tour courses. But they players have too much say in the latter and not enough in the former.
