    Hi. Astonished that Merion itself does not have the definitive history behind the wicker baskets. There’s your next project Robert.

    Is this true??? I’ve heard that if your ball gets stuck in the wicker basker you get to place it on the lip of the hole-no penalty. I assume that is NOT the rule for the US Open??

    Nice Post Robert! Absolutely loved the history, (as an Englishman), watching Justin Rose hit that final shot to the 18th, just a few yard from the Hogan marker! Absolutely thrilling end. Keep up the great work. Steve X
