ST AN­DREWS (OLD) – 17TH

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

The Road Hole is iconic and mem­o­rable in ev­ery re­spect, start­ing with a blind drive as you take on the fabled rail­way sheds on the cor­ner. The ap­proach is guarded by the scari­est bunker in golf and a road at the back from which there is no re­lief. In the 1978 Open, Tommy Naka­jima took four to es­cape the sand. In the open­ing round last year, it was the hard­est hole in recorded Open his­tory, av­er­ag­ing 4.83 with­out a sin­gle birdie. Length: 455 yards W: stan­drews.com
