Liberty National: 'creating...discussion in the lunch room'

August 26, 2009

Geoff Ogilvy posted on Twitter this regarding Liberty National Golf Club, site of the Barclays: "The course is creating a lot of discussion in the lunch room. Which is a good thing, I think."

It's tough to read between the lines, but suffice it to say that it does not come across as a ringing endorsement of the course. Earlier, he posted this: "Mid pro am tweet. If we play the course with these tees and these pins, and this wind nobody will get anywhere near even par."

He did later say it could be fun with "tees up a little, smart pins and a little less wind."
