More on the Old Course and the Open Championship

  • Windsorite Jeff Mingay writes an interesting take on the Old Course for Jeff’s a friend and an aspiring golf architect. Of course he’s like one of a million architects to write on the Old Course, but so what? It is interesting nonetheless.
  • My collegues at the Globe and Mail go nuts on the Open. Mike Weir “writes” in his diary for the paper about playing a round with Nicklaus, Watson and Kenny Perry. Not particularly insightful though. Who writes this stuff for him? Mike Grange? Here’s another story on Weir’s round with the Bear.
  • The R&A were so worried that after 150 years the Old Course was becoming obsolete that they went ahead and made a bunch of changes. Now former Open champ Peter Thomson says the changes won’t make any difference — Tiger and the like will still bomb it over them. Ugh.
