Isn't the beauty of the majors that they each offer something very
different? The Masters - wide open fairways and lightning fast and
difficult greens - placing a premium on precise shotmaking and putting.
In my view now being compromised by pandering to the "stop the long
hitters" crowd. The US Open - accuracy off the tee plus length. The Open
- most international of all the majors, and links golf, with all its
weather vagaries. And then there's the PGA with - um, let me see, heat
and humidity?

So why try to rank them? Just enjoy the different flavour of each.

How can a tournament be a major if it hasn't been held in 5+ years?

Well, sheep pasture is a bit more like it. And there's a reason
for that.
It's probably the most appropriate place to play a golf tournament.

Yeah, and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field are such dumps compared to all
them snazzy newfangled stadiums.

And that "Claret Jug" thingie -- you call that a trophy? Why, I've
got bowling trophies bigger than that!

A course in my old home town used some "decor" by the tee boxes from
an old mini-golf course. Windmills, loop-the-loops, that sort of
thing. They oughta dress up St. Andrews or Royal Troon like that to
overcome the "cow pasture" look. A few waterfalls and some daisies
would be nice too.
