I dunno, I don't watch a tournament to see the fans. I'm more interested in seeing the layout and, on that score, this was a terrific venue -- lots of different, challenging holes. Enjoyed watching it far more than prefab courses with built in spectator venues.It also looked terrible for live viewing... the spectators were never near the action.
But that's just my preference, I guess. The (British) Open is my favorite tournament to watch each year
