We're still getting comments about the Masters course set-up, while the debate continues on golf blogs. For a very thoughtful assessment from a guy who's seen more Masters than most of have seen golf courses, read Bill Fields story in this week's Golf World, part of his "Letter from Augusta." Bill argues that the changes have cost Augusta something, a naturalness, a rhythm.

Not sure most of you agree. Our poll on asks a slightly different question, but gets at the heart of the debate. We ask if you think the course set-up was unfair. Responses are running two to one, "No."
