This will make you go a little 'green' then Roy..... I was fortunate to play at St Andrews in my early 20's, not the old course, sadly! I was a guest of a family member. Can't remember what my score was now.... something stupid.... but it was fun.
Brack, no envy here, I'm just happy you had the chance. I would so love to someday play some of the great courses in Scotland, Ireland and England. The Seaside links are something to treasure and truly, the way Golf should be played. No overly planted, tree lined fairways, but wide open Golf with hump, bumps, punishing sand traps, where the wind is allowed to blow free and unobstructed. Now THAT's Golf! I've always enjoyed playing when the weather isn't at it's best, makes for more thought prior to the shot. This is why I truly love this tournament, you just never know what might happen.
This is also why I'm glad to see that not only the PGA Championship is returning to Whistling Straits this year, but in 2020 the Ryder Cup will be played on the Straits too. Is is so very much like the Seaside courses. I've been to two tournaments their already, both the PGA in 2004 and the 2007 U.S. Senoir Open. When I first stepped onto the course, it felt like I was walking on the moon, because it was so differnet than most American courses. I loved the look and feel, but can't even imagine trying to play it.
Joe is the Best!
