Players Review TPC Las Colinas

No one ever said that the guys on the PGA Tour are known for their architectural eye, but they seem to be talking publicly in favor of DA Weibring's changes to TPC Las Colinas.

"To see where this place was a year ago, and where it is now, it's amazing that a group of people can get together and do that," said Matteson, who finished in a tie for 29th at last year's Nelson. "It shocked me, literally, coming out [Monday] to see the green complexes and what's been done. It's a championship golf course now."
I'm not sure what a green complex is, unless he means the practice green. But it is positive.

The change that drew the most attention was the increased undulation on the new greens.

"The green complexes are a lot harder. They've got more humps and bumps, so you've got to place your ball pretty well around here," said Scott McCarron, whose best Nelson finish came in 1998, when he tied for sixth. "With the changes, I think the course will play a full shot per day harder."

Ahhh, now I get what a green complex is. Translation: humps and bumps that make up the green's character.

Then there's a whole lot of comparison comments between this year and last - which was [Bill]HORRRIBLLLEEEE[/Walton].
