Nothing official yet, but this would be so big for Northeast Ohio. I think Firestone would be a great host and the crowds would be massive. Maybe a major opportunity for Tiger? He has won here a meager 8 times :cool:

I like it.

Lots of fans are familiar with the course so that always makes it more enjoyable

That’s what I was thinking. Speed the greens up and let that rough grow. Think about the Seniors last year, I’m pretty sure something around even won it 👀

With high rough the South course would be one of the most difficult in the country. The North course, although much different than the South, is also a really great layout.

The North is certainly a great layout. Just don’t think they could make it difficult enough for a Major.

When we had a thread a few weeks ago Firestone came to mind. I just don’t want to see -25 win a PGA Championship. They would have to toughen up conditions there.

Right, I agree. I think they have the ability to toughen it up. You gotta hit fairways on the South, and they could make the rough be essentially a one stroke penalty.
