My good friend John Boyne (Boynie) is a caddy at St. Andrews. He and I have agreed to do some Q&A about St. Andrews and the upcoming British Open. I’d like you all to post some questions here and I’ll pick a few to submit to him. Comment them in below and I’ll pick some to submit.
We DO plan to do a guided tour of The Old Course in three chunks, 6 holes at a time. Boynie will tell us a little about each hole and how the pros should play them and what pitfalls they’ll encounter.
Thanks to my pal Stephan Jansson for sending me some photos of Bali Hai golf course in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I’ve added those to the HOG image gallery, which now has over 12,000 images and roughly 4000 images of golf courses!
This week Tiger Woods and the PGA Tour are at Aronomink for the AT&T National. Aronomink was designed by perhaps the most famous golf course designer of all time, Donald Ross. Donald Ross’ most famous course is Pinehurst #2. What a lot of people don’t know, is that Aronomink was Ross’ pride and joy or his “masterpiece” as he called it. In fact, there’s a plaque with a bust of Ross by the 1st hole which says “This is my masterpiece.” ”
Back in 1997 I played The Mink and I enjoyed it very much. I really like tree lined “traditional” style courses. The greens were quite undulating and challenging as well.
Digital photography was pretty bad as was my swing and my body shape back then. I have a gallery of Aronomink pictures, but they’re from the first digital still camera I owned. That camera was a whopping 1-megapixel and shot pretty bad shots.
