  1. While I enjoyed the television coverage of the Open (the overhead plane views were amazing), I cannot imagine playing that course on a regular basis. The weather stinks and the course routing is like a miniature golf course. The result of most shots is simply the luck of how the ball bounces around in the mounds.

    There is no way to tell if you are any good if you play the Old Course a couple times a week. A pro can shoot 63 one day and 80 the next.

    I prefer to play a course where good shots are rewarded and bad shots are not. That way I can tell if I am improving or not.
