Kenny Perry discusses River Highland's architecture

Kenny Perry blistered the TPC River Highlands Thursday with a nine-under-par 61, tying the course record and followed with a two-under round Friday.

Asked if River Highlands needs to be lengthened to combat such low scores, which was due in part to the soft conditions brought on by weeks of rain, Perry's response was, no.

"If you really want to change the scoring conditions, you don't have to add length at all. You have to get the guys to think a little bit out there and play a little more course management instead of the old bomb and gouge approach," he said. "So I mean I love this golf course, it's one of my favorites. It's got a lot of risk-reward holes. The finish from 13 in are just beautiful golf holes coming down the stretch, and no, I don't think they need to lengthen the golf course at all."
