Nicklaus Unveils Muirfield Village Changes

Claiming it has nothing to do with Tiger Woods' fragile knee, Jack Nicklaus allowed reporters and photographers into Muirfield Village Golf Club today to see some of the changes he's made in advance of this month's Memorial Tournament.

While Nicklaus started by pointing out new tee boxes at the 14th and 15th holes and a reshaped bunker on the first, what was most noticeable were the moving walkways and escalators that have been placed on every single hole, a change Nicklaus shrugged off as something "they're just testing out this year" to see if it eases the "walkability of the course for fans and maybe certain players." The steepness of Muirfield Village has been cited as a possible reason Tiger may not return to the Tour until the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
