(Palo Alto, Calif.) - Renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has begun a series of posts on Facebook (Robert Trent Jones II LLC – RTJ2 Golf Design) that offer his one-of-a-kind insider observations, stories, and other details about subjects of crucial importance to golfers worldwide. The most recent post discusses his father’s contributions to the layout at Augusta National, site of this week’s Masters.
Jones says, “Chambers Bay echoes stories from great Opens held in the past and we hope it will create some great new stories that will be told for years to come.”
In this Thursday's Facebook post, Jones Jr. wrote:
“I’ve been privileged to be coming here for the tournament for a long time. My dad actually created the ponds at the 11th and 16th holes, and moved the green at 13 across the creek, bringing water in as a hazard back in the 1940s … This is great proof that no great championship course is allowed to fully rest, and must respond to changes in the game.”
