Battling the Monster

I've played the South course more than any other World Top 100 course, but it's been a while. The last time I played the famous "Monster" was prior to the 2008 PGA Championship won by Padraig Harrington. Oakland Hills is the classic old-school country club track. It is well-hidden within a neighborhood in metro Detroit. There's really only one hole (no. 16) with water (a pond) in play. Evil greens and gnarly rough defend par as well as any course to ever host a major event. Not many clubs have hosted so many prestigious tournaments - the 2004 Ryder Cup and multiple PGA Championships and U.S. Open. Most of my rounds have been media days prior to these events, meaning the rough was extra shaggy. My meager game had no answers for these perilous conditions. If you fancy yourself a player, try to take on Oakland Hills. You'll walk away with your tail tucked between your legs, too.
