Abstract:Announces the retirement of golf course architect Jay Morrish. Profiles Morrish, highlighting his career achievements. States that Morrish has "had a hand in designing more than 100 courses over...40 years." Discusses "why [Morrish is] calling it quits in 2004." Explains that golf has "gotten to the point where equipment has leveled the field and brought a lot of mediocre players to the forefront." Suggests that "if [an architect wants] to challenge the best players in the world to hit all 14 clubs, [architects have] to give them a course with at least 7,000 to 7,100 yards." Offers advice to superintendents managing golf courses with large layouts, advising them to "make sure [they've] got enough money in [their] budget, because [they're] going to need it." Mentions Morrish's post-retirement plants.
