    I can help you here.

    Real golf is played on Real golf courses, laid out by Real men, including Old Tom, James Braid, Harry Vardon, Harry Colt, and even Alistair MacKenzie.

    If it's nae laid out by one of them, it's nae golf.

    same wish kinda, I want Sat/Sun to be a wind fest. I hate when your tee time Thurs Fri determines if you have a chance to compete or not. Hate seeing my favourite players get the wrong side of the draw.

    The best golf courses use the existing ground and its surroundings to build the character of the course itself. Admittedly Scotland and Ireland have great courses but so does every country in the world where golf is played. That is all I got to say about that.

    But I have a fine eye for golf courses and whiskey. The Irish have my vote on the whiskey, particularly Jameson's.

    A good well drink perhaps. Redbreast 12 and 18 are much better IMO

    The Qualifying Series continues this week at two tournaments.

    Top three golfers in the top 10 that are not already qualified at the Andalucia Masters get in.

    Top two golfers in the top 8 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic also get in.

    If you are going to the Open and are looking for whiskey, they make Bushmills in the same area as the course. There's a distillery beside Portrush.

    Bushmills is very smooth. A lovely drink. If you are going I hope you have your tickets. Sold out.

    You asked the question. I gave you the facetious answer.
