Returning golf to affordability

Richard Mandell and Mike Nuzzo address the 2012 Symposium on Affordable Golf at Southern Pines, North Carolina, in October.

I may have underestimated the former. His blog posts can be a little heavy but he's in fine form in the first of these clips, putting a long-overdue boot into the bunkering overkill at China's Mission Hills, throwing up an interesting talking-point in the use of undulation as a defence and resurrecting a theme beloved of the late, great Peter Dobereiner, who felt that bunkers should not only be left unraked but should also be left to Nature and the elements for lengthy periods, until they once again live up to the name 'hazard'.

I also admire a man who's not ashamed to admit that he has a favourite mound.

Mike Nuzzo discusses the concept of affordability in relation to his design at Wolf Point.
