"Brutal" and "A Beast of a Course" - The Concession, & WGC Leaderboard

26-Feb-2021

World Golf Championships 2021: WGC-Workday at The Concession


One of the world's greatest, "brutal", "a beast of a course"


From: Golf's Greatest Courses,  The Concession

"How can a golf course only a few years old have so much history?  We sit down with Tony Jacklin to find out the story behind The Concession.  Creating one of the most challenging courses in the south east was no easy task, so Beau Rialls takes a few swings to find out what it's like to putt these super fast greens."  - From video above.

The course is described by Paul Azinger as "brutal for the average golfer".  Azinger is a lead analyst for NBC Sports and is a member of the Concession Golf Club. 

Following one golfer's gruelling round, he suggested to Jacklin that it could have been named "The Concussion".  Jacklin did not disagree.  And, it is still to this day "a beast of a course."

It raises the question, who will make the cut?  Who will stay the course?

History, background and real challenges uncovered in the video, which includes historic film footage and photographs.
