But are you forgetting the PGA West Stadium course?

The Nicklaus course is set up quite a bit easier for the Humana (Bob Hope) than it will be for Q School Finals.  The Humana is a Pro-Am event where they want to make sure the Ams have a good time & the Pros make lots of birdies.

Throw in the Stadium course as part of the Q School rotation, all the added pressure of trying to get a PGA Tour card and the Nicklaus course will hold it's own.

yeah.... probably not a fair comparison
run of the mill driver with stock shaft
a couple of outdated hybrids
shovel-ier shovels
wedges from same shovel company
some putter with a dead insert and
a hideous grip

At the end the average score of the PGA Championship was higher than US Open!

Love both those courses. Especially the stadium.  
Technology has made them easier,  somewhat ,but Q school pressure makes them the most difficult courses in the world for those on the line...
Worst decision ever to get rid of it.

Don't know where they got that yardage....

Nicklaus Tournament course is 7204 yards long, rated 75.3 with slope of 143!  All at 50 feet below sea level.
