2018 Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open


Recommended Posts

I love to watch links golf. It’s so desolate and beautiful at the same time. This is great lead in to the British Open. And I mean the British Open not the Open. But that’s a whole different topic.

Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

It’s taken me a lifetime to realize the same. These courses always look fun for regular golfers. Nice to see courses not involved in a love affair with water.

I've tried a few link style golf courses here in the states. It is always ruined by ponds being added. Love a creek but a pond doesn't belong.

Royal County Down and Ballyliffin disagree ;)

 

Just kidding, I agree with you!

Always trying to find money angle. Is this a maintainemce saving move? More ponds less to mow. Also notice every teebox has that rough cut before the fairway.

Days like today are reason greens are watered heavily. Very few players getting close and are forced to pitch before greens on a number of holes . Hard to control the ball even with softer greens. Scores would rocket if they were hard.

 

Yeah. Par on these courses is relative to the wind.

What a tight leaderboard, looks to be more wind again today so like last week I like Knox to come up trumps or Rickie/ Justin to put pressure, plenty of talent in or around the lead but hardly a win between them.

 

On a side note being a Adam Scott fan really surprised he didn't tee up here in Scotland, hasn't played since the US Open and will go cold into the Open, and Paul Casey also a no show here but will play in a very weak event in Germany after the Open with minimal Ryder Cup points and even though he looks to have enjoyed a day or 2 at Wimbledon I hope he makes the team or may due missing Scotland and Ireland.
