Ask a dozen golfers to classify courses and you will get as many different answers, but when it comes to Muirfield, there is absolute consensus. Some say that it is perfection, although defining the perfect course is about as difficult as defining the perfect round of golf. Personal taste can be the deciding factor, but one thing is for certain - Muirfield embraces many of the qualities a perfectionist seeks in his ideal course. A clockwise outward half encases a counter-clockwise inward nine, which means players must make incessant adjustment for wind direction. Jack Nicklaus liked what he saw so much that he named his home course after it.
