As for courses, are the US Open courses really tougher, or just tricked up? Carnoustie was the toughest when it was accidentally tricked up when Lawrie won.
I'm not sure that toughest = most prestigious though?
If we get enough votes I would expect to see a split in favour of the Open from non-US and Masters/US Open form US based, just as tuq said earlier, it's just the way it is I suppose.
