British Open - St. Andrews Photo Gallery

2 posts in this topic

Let me start by saying congratulations to Stacy Lewis for winning the 2013 Ricoh British Open, played on the Old Course at St. Andrews. Stacy birdied the final 2 holes to win by 2 strokes over Na Yeon Choi and Hee Young Park. Choi, who had a 3 stroke lead on the back nine, bogeyed 3 of the last 6 holes. Stacy's approach shot on the 17th hole, which set up her birdie, will be remembered for a very long time. After the tournament Stacy would say that it was the best shot of her life. Considering the circumstances, I couldn't agree more.

My wife & I arrived in St. Andrews on the Sunday morning before the tournament. We decided to check out the golf course about 9:30 PM that night. We parked our car and walked onto the "Old Course".
I was surprised to see that there was no security and that anyone could walk onto what I consider the most beautiful golf course I have ever seen. I walked behind the 18th green and looked out at the fairway. I pictured Jack Nicklaus walking up to the green to a standing ovation. I could never explain the feeling I got standing there. You would have to experience it yourself. I do know that many of the people I spoke to there, got that very same feeling.

Trying to describe this incredible place, and the village that is within walking distance, would be impossible. I hope you will enjoy these pictures.

    • Can't hit long irons at all... any tips?
      Hitting a long iron is like to write a Constitution for a newly-born country. It must be based on a lot of factors such as Current Economy, Geography, Culture an a lot more. Move on from there and look for a good GDP, then make some Amendaments because you have to do something else to foster the change.  I am into my fifth month of playing golf. I've found out that long iron is the most difficult club to hit consistently let alone acuracy and good distance. I am now commited to use only 4iron at driving range for a period of 3 months.  The word FRONTIER means there a lot of things to discover on my swing. So let pin down 20 techniques I must discover. After 3 weeks, I could say I have gained some and currently I am still looking to achieve some more techniques or up to 20 techniques to make pure swing every time.  Following are what I have discovered and these techniques have been already sunk in my TISSUES, my CELLUAR through deliberate practices.  1. Target line  2. Hip turn  3. Left arm straight  4. Right toe stands upright after swing 5. Be careful on backswing 5. Downswing is slow around first half and accelerate throughout second half 6. Backswing is tension free (if you can't handle the backswing with tension free, you are too weak and should wait after few sleeps) 7. Free tension on shoulder during backswing 8. Your eye, your mind, your soul strictly focus on the point of impact MOI (to the rest of your life with any golf club) 9. You must be heathly at all time with long iron (if you don't feel well that day, please no long iron) 10. High spirit (if not, you lose consciousness, all the techniques can't be incorporated)  11 to 20 are techniques I am discovering. Keep in mind if you want to have a tan skin, go to the salon and stay in the box to be tanned. Only tons of practices make you tanned.  Chapter 1: to attain consistency level (every swing is airborne, ignore the distane and accuracy) Chapter 2: to attain accuracy with consistency Chapter 3: to attain distance with accuracy and consistency 3 month with the 4iron. Enjoy and good luck
    • 2-meals-a-day vs. 6-meals-a-day Debate
      Isn't the six-meal idea sort of a bodybuilding related thing. The idea is to cram in the fuel since you need it after all that lifting. Usually, I'm on two-and-a-half real meals. Breakfast is real small. It's typically a cup of yogurt or some toast. I need to stay away from the famous fourth meal that generally consists of beer and junk.  
    • Winning a major vs winning a gold medal
      The Ryder Cup has a history and is a team event. Apples and oranges.

    • Winning a major vs winning a gold medal
      So, what's all the hoopla about Ryder's cup?   For the look of it, everyone is trying to make the team, they show lots of emotion during play, etc..   Shouldn't Olympic elicit more from the players to make the team, and play one for the nation?   What are your thoughts if the thread was about making/winning Ryder cup vs winning a major?   Ryder cup vs Olympics?
