    Not that I want to turn this into a fight, but if you look at this "3D" pic from pgatour leaderboard, it sure looks like they're off the back tees. Rhambo's round 3 is in blue, I did a lousy sketch of a "middle of the fairway" line, and it's not a big stretch to see that being 522 while the more direct line being 464. That's only 12.5% (i.e. 1/8) more distance.

    As the crow flies it's (about) 463 yds tee to green. Centre to centre, hastily measured on google maps.

    My jagged line is about 532 yds, also hastily done. But it's all close enough.

    Anyways, my point wasn't about which tees they were hitting from but that they would falsify the yardage for television.

    I don't think they're doing that and it's way too easy to catch them if they do so it just doesn't make sense.

        They said the course is playing extra long because it is so wet.....some areas have/had not been mowed in 10 days.
        you know it was bad when they had to play Lift clean and cheat

            Cam is not a short hitter - last year he averaged 301 - over the break he gained 4 to 5 miles per hr of swing speed taking him from 114 to 119 SS - he out drove Rham on numerous holes yesterday also not because of SS but because of ball flight and shape of shot
