A Golf Fan's Plea
Even before the first score has been posted, eyebrows were raised over the
freshly minted tees that would add 50 yards to the 9th and 10th holes at Pebble

Goosen’s eyes widened when he thought about hitting a wood for his
second shot at No. 9, which already measures a healthy 466 yards, or at No. 10,
which measures 446.
“I don’t know,” said Goosen, a former United States Open winner.
“Twenty, but why 50?”
