Ernie Els has said that he is hoping there will less of a fuss about the new Wentworth course at this year's BMW PGA Championship.
The prestigious event begins on Thursday and the South African, who helped create the new-look course, wants players to forget the troubles of last year.
Casey called it a "grind", while Poulter said after a second-round 74 last May: "You're watching, you tell me; is it fun?"
Speaking to reporters, Els said: "Criticism is always tough to take but if it's granted in the right way I'm fine with it.
"The way it was [made public in the media] in the first year was a little childish but hopefully we'll have more smiling faces from the players this year.
"You make changes on a great course like the West Course, people are going to not like it."
Luke Donald grabbed the world number one spot from Westwood by winning last year's event in a dramatic playoff.
