not as good as the original 3rd at St.George’s but still the best course ever to host a Canadian Open.

Can you imagine how good Nelson and Hogan could have been with Phil’s team of gurus? Might never have heard of them!

    Nice picture of the 3rd at St. George’s. I know because I took the shot!! It’s from the 6th tee. Someone on GCA wanted a different view of the green and I had happened to have played it about a week earlier and took the photo while waiting for the group ahead to finish. I wish someone had done the same before they changed the hole in the 60’s. I would love to see the original mounding that Thompson put in. Jim Barclay told me that the green was about half the size that it is now. It’s too bad that great holes change because a couple of people think they know better than one of the greatest architects of all time.
    I’ve noticed your comments on Ian and Robert’s blogs, but I never noticed that you had blog until today. I’m glad, it will give me some more reading. I’d love to talk to you about Huntsville Downs sometime. It’s a great course and I’d love to hear about how it used to be.
    Have a great time in Scotland,
