The information that is gathered hosting high-profile golf tournaments, with the best amateurs in the world, is astounding.

The Husky Invitational finishes up Tuesday on the Olympic Course at
Gold Mountain Golf Complex in Gorst. Here is a few of the alterations
since the NCAA West Regionals last spring:
• The par-4 second hole will be drivable at 291 yards.
• The par-5 11th will be shortened to 521 yards for at least one of the rounds.
• The tee box for the par-3 16th – which coincides with the tee area
for the 11th hole – has been pushed back, and can play as long as 209
The three changes were suggested by University of Washington coach
Matt Thurmond, and endorsed by Gold Mountain director of golf Scott
