Golf Digest's recent administration of the W I D E Open, in which a hole 15 inches in diameter was substituted\nfor the regulation 4-1/4 inch hole at the Pine Needles GC in Southern Pines, N.C., has drawn a lot of attention and comment. The idea of a experimenting with a larger hole isn't a new one. Gene Sarazen proposed trying an 8-inch diameter hole back in the early 1930s. Almost every alteration or innovation -- proposed or adopted -- to the parameters of the game causes some controversy. These five have been the most polarizing.
