There was an Open Championship at Carnoustie in 1999 that was beyond brutal. Weather and rough caused one golfer to take refuge in his mother’s arms, after two rounds in the 80’s. That Open also gave us the infamous Jean van de Valde meltdown. Let’s hope it doesn’t turn out that way and we get to see some great golf, in a very traditional environment.
