Eroding Support For Some Of Old Course Phase Two Work?

Steve Scott reports that the Old Course changes still so adored by the locals, may not see some of phase two play out next winter because greenkeeper Gordon Moir may put a halt to Martin Hawtree's grotesque idea of introducing "broken ground" to the sacred ground.

Quoting the Links Trust's Euan London:

“We’ve only done two experimental areas beside two and seven, and the greenkeepers are not convinced that this is a clever thing to do, even if the architect thinks it is,” he said.

“Gordon Moir and his staff have a view about these things. We’ll get to the end of the summer and a season’s worth of growth on this broken ground and if we don’t like it, we’ll say to (the R&A) that we shouldn’t do this.”
