I agree with you. It was probably the most anti-climactic finishing hole I've seen in a major. I also can't understand for the life of me why the players hit longer clubs there and left themselves the awkward distance of about 65 yards (that's what Duval did). It would have made more sense to lay up to perfect sand wedge distance, take the shot a bit past the hole and back it up slightly. Playing it the way they did, no one got it close because they all had to improvise and hit a feel shot. They also couldn't generate enough spin from that distance to draw the ball back to that front pin location. I don't get it.

scoring average of 3.87 on sunday. glover hit 6-iron, 9-iron. That would be a bad hole at my uncle's club which is about 5900 yds from the tips. And what do you have left after bombing a drive 300+ in the fairway? An impossible shot. I know that fairway was one of the wettest and the usga did a great job getting tournament finished at all. But an 18th hole that easy? I'm trying to figure out how to make a bogey there.
