Trinity Forest is too wide and was boring to watch.
a. I didn’t feel like there was any penalty off the tee. I know people will scream (angles!) but I will argue that pros hit it so high, so far, and with so much spin that it negates this argument.

Par is much more than a number.
a. I saw a lot of people arguing this in defense of Erin Hills last year. Sorry, but it sucked. The U.S. Open should not turn into the PGA Championship 2.0 . They shoot -10 to -20 every other week of the year.
Trees add a lot to certain courses. They make the players hit a lot of different shots off the tee and punishes them for being out of position.
Any other contrarian takes? Any rebuttals?
