Davis Love to rework Angus Glen North for Canadian Open

As I mentioned in a post last year, Davis Love III has struck a deal to rework some of Angus Glen North for the 2007 Canadian Open.
What a joke. First of all, neither Angus Glen owner Gordon Stollery or RCGA executive director Stephen Ross called Doug Carrick or Jay Morrish, the two architects behind the course, to tell them they were bringing in Love to rework a course that only opened a few years ago. Secondly, sources say that Love's group is trying to buy Carrick's planned revisions for the course so that Davis' design firm really wouldn't have to do much at all -- aside from place its name on the golf course. Love III/Carrick/ Morrish, anyone?
It was bad enough that the RCGA put the Canadian Open up for sale, first to Bell Canada (I can't bring myself to call it the Bell Canadian Open, why not the Canadian Open, presented by Bell Canada), then to owners of golf courses. Apparently they even offered it to the awful Lionhead, but the owner wouldn't come up with the cash.
So typical, but wait until the 2007 Open when Angus Glen gets billed as a "Davis Love III design."
