Old Course Changes, what the R&A members were told….

St Andrews Links Trust Press Release

This is a copy of the  press release sent to members of the R&A and Links Trust seasonal ticket holders.

I can understand some of the changes, my concern is NO CHANGES should be made to compensate for the new golf balls used by professionals.  In spite of what Titleist says in their ads, the PRO Vs only go further if you have very fast club head speed, for most of us we don’t get this distance, and no changes in the Home of Golf are required. I don’t mind the Championship tees, no one can play them on a daily basis, they use them every five years.

picking partners on the first tee of the Old. Gordon Murray’s best shot!
