Let's take a brief break from the historic films (oh there are more!) to savor this very millennial-friendly Old Course at St. Andrews flyover posted by the R&A.
It's a bit scattered and non-sensical in the route taken (including heading over holes that are not even on the Old Course). But the piece is educational on a number of levels.
First, watch the initial move down the 18th so you can get a good look at the first hole to the Road hole green, a configuration used when the course is played in reverse.
Also note the boundaries, which play such a role here (except of course when the R&A places a tee on the other side of one of them because the ball goes too far). They are all to the right of the golfers, so a righty with a pronouced draw or a lefty with the ability to cut the ball on cue can alleviate many fears pretty easily. (Paging Bubba Watson!).
Mostly, just soak up the many intricate bumps and bunkers that make the place endlessly fascinating and nuanced.
(PS - Here is a Golfweek roundup of Tuesday's Open qualifying where a nice mix of young and old made it to St. Andrews. And a tip of the cap to Monty for flying back from Sacramento to Woburn for a go at qualifying. He finished T15.)
