Green jackets fight back: Masters course ‘where we want it.’

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Don’t expect a repeat of Dustin Johnson’s record-shattering 20-under win as the Masters tees off. The pandemic that forced tournament officials to move last year’s event to November produced softer-than-usual conditions that just about every golfer in the field pounced on. Club Chairman Fred Ridley practically vowed that won’t be the case this time around. “I think we have the golf course where we want it,” he said. What’s that mean? ”They’re not concrete yet,” former champion Fred Couples chuckled, referring to the greens, “but they’re brown and they’re going to get there fast.”
