Sir Nick Faldo made his second trip in the last 11 months to Pinehurst to participate in a Glenmorangie event, but took a few minutes after his golf clinic to discuss the Coore & Crenshaw restoration of Pinehurst No. 2, which will host back-to-back U.S. Opens in 2014.
Faldo said that PGA Tour players are not accustomed to playing shots out of waste areas with native grasses, but added that he believes players will welcome the myriad options they will have playing out of Pinehurst-style rough.
