I'd Love To Play St. Andrews Someday

After seeing Rory McIlroy drive the green on the Tom Morris Hole at St. Andrews today it made me even more want to golf there sometime in my life. It also made me aware that links golf in October is just awesome just check out the coverage this week at the 2009 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship contested over 3 links courses (Old Course, St Andrews, Carnoustie & Kingsbarns).

The Tom Morris hole would be awesome to golf Rory hits driver and it goes long on the 357 yd. hole. Two putts for birdie and a nice 65 for McIlroy. The only time I had a 300+ yd drive was when I hit driver on a hole at a local course and I got a great bounce off the cargo liner of a truck in the parking lot. I know I'd never be able to hit it to the green on the "Road Hole" but damn it would be fun to try.

That's actually the 18th at St Andrews - the Road hole is the 17th and is much, much harder.

Rory also got a three on it though and many of the pros play it as a 5 mentally because it is so tough. It's one of the hardest par fours in the owrld.
