The par 4 that plays like a par 5
he toughest hole in golf might be the 11th at Royal Troon, which hosted its ninth Open Championship this summer. “Railway” (illustrated) is loaded with thick gorse along both sides, and the railroad tracks on the right are outof-bounds. It’s 442 metres from the tips, with the prevailing wind against. When we played there in 1962, I made a 10 in one round and a 7 in another. Not fun.
