I love to keep in tune with happenings in the Home of Golf, St. Andrews.  Today the Old Course began reconstruction of the famous Shell Bunker face.  Shell Bunker is a giant bunker which guards the 7th green.

What the officials at the Old Course forgot to mention is why they’re rebuilding.  While my pals and I were in St. Andrews in July, my buddy Shanego spent so much time in Shell Bunker that he apparently wore out the face!
