17th old course

...With many a winding turn. Or so the song goes. Could The Hollies have predicted that the legendary Road Hole, the 17th on The Old Course at St Andrews, would be lengthened for the 139th Open Championship in 2010? No, of course they couldn´t - that´s the talk of mad folk.
Nonetheless, the R&A has placed a new tee box off the golf course property in an attempt to restore the challenge of one of the most famous holes in golf. John Duggan from The Scotsman is also pleased to report that the famous Old Course greens have also survived the cold snap.
