Old Course

Very weird. Not difficult. All depends on wind. Five of us waited in the line and got on.  The rest will try later, I think.  Shot 84 with three doubles. Faster greens than the other courses. Tighter fairways too. Definitely not used to that lie with long irons.

Gonna get sleep for the first time all trip. Kingsbarns tomorrow. Supposed to be the best of the trip.

From the score updates, it doesn't seem like any of the courses are super difficult.

Turnberry was the hardest course I've ever played. Shot 94 but still. It's a beast, especially with wind.

When you play it from the women's tees it becomes easy I assume. No carries over all the crap and I assume they don't keep the rough 3 feet high year round.

What about gotecki hitting someone in the face?

Courses out here for the most part have two tee options. And what you play is dictated by your index. Old Course is one of those. Only single digits are allowed to play the "whites". The rest must play "yellow" at 6387 yards.

I could do an entire essay of Gorecki's nonsense. And I just might. But yeah he blasted a guy in the shoulder which bounced into his face from about 100 yards away.

Classic Gorecki...
