The changes to the 18th at Wentworth mostly got a bashing during the PGA Championship last week, but one player who won't give a monkeys about the supposed monster created by Ernie Els is surprise winner Simon Khan.
Englishman Khan - perhaps a little unfairly described as a "journeyman" in many of the press reports - produced a birdie at the redesigned 539-yard par-5 last to claim easily the biggest pay cheque of his previously undistinguished career.
Wentworth owner Richard Caring has promised to revisit the layout of the 18th ahead of next year's event - perhaps lowering the dance floor a little and allowing more room for players to strut their stuff.
But the current design clearly held no fears for Khan on the final day as he drained a 20-foot putt to claim the clubhouse lead on an afternoon when the leaders struggled with the new demands in Virginia Water.
Six under may have appeared a shot or two shy for a winning number, but it proved just enough as joint runners-up Frederik Andersson Hed and Luke Donald conspired to make a hash of the 17th, dropping three shots between them on the penultimate par-5.
With a five-under 66 in the bank, Khan then had to withstand the obligatory intrusion of the television cameras as he waited to see whether any of his rivals could match or better his total.
He spent a little time with his wife - who by coincidence was celebrating her 42nd birthday - and daughter before deciding to hit a few balls on the range, and BM for one wanted things to work out for this likeable 37-year-old.
One could sense the Epping-born Arsenal fan was not entirely used to the attention, despite having triumphed at the Wales Open in 2004, and one could also sense how much victory would mean to him.
Obviously the 750,000-euro winner's cheque will be more than welcome in the Khan household, but BM gets the feeling that Khan will be just as pleased with not having to worry about his tour card for the next five years.
You see, Khan is one of those pros who has had a yo-yo relationship with the European Tour; he knows only too well the agony and pain of having to revisit qualifying school and what it means both personally and professionally to lose playing rights for Europe's main tour.
Indeed, Khan needed a sponsors' invite just to compete at Wentworth last week, having been forced back to qualifying school for 2010 after losing his card last year - despite a decent effort at the season-ending Hong Kong Open.
He has admitted to breaking down in tears after failing to keep his card, and only those pros who have experienced the lottery of qualifying school - and how difficult it can be for even the best players - will understand his distress.
But gain his card he did - and in emphatic fashion too as he won December's six-round final stage at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain - and his Wentworth triumph means he can now look forward to an extra week off during December, for the next five years at least.
It's hard to have any real sympathy for a sportsman who has won more than £4.5 million during his career - no matter how many ups and downs he has experienced - but there was no doubting what the Wentworth victory meant to Khan.
In an era when we have become desensitised to sporting success owing to spoilt, overpaid athletes, Khan's triumph made a welcome and refreshing change.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "There is going to be criticism with any new design but I really wasn't expecting the backlash I got. I don't think anybody deserved it. If the people who made all those comments, especially the players, look back at what they said and what they achieved this week, it was all negative. The tour doesn't need it, the club doesn't need it, the owner who has put all this money in doesn't need it, I don't need it." Ernie Els hits back at players who questioned his Wentworth redesign, despite the 11-stroke difference between Khan's winning score and former champion Paul Casey's in 2009.
ROUND OF THE WEEK: Continuing with our Wentworth theme, it has to be Swede Robert Karlsson's course record nine-under-par 62 in the second round of the PGA Champiohsip. The new-look track had been bearing its teeth all week - so much so that some of Europe's finest were unable to keep the toys in their collective pram, bless 'em - but Karlsson showed what was possible with nine birdies in a flawless round of the Surrey course.
PREDICTION OF THE WEEK: Phil Mickelson to replace troubled Tiger Woods at the top of the world rankings with victory at the PGA Tour's Colonial Invitation in Fort Worth, Texas. Woods will be absent due to a lingering neck problem - anything to do with not being able to hold his head up high? - while Mickelson will be confident of success having triumphed at Fort Worth in 2000 and 2008. It will be further evidence of Woods's fall from grace if we have a new world number one come Sunday evening.
