The Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland, UK, where the PGA major tournament ‘The Open’ is held, is called ‘the home of golf’. Because this is where golf was born.
The face of this golf course always crowded with ‘golf pilgrims’ is the stone bridge on the 18th hole. It is called ‘Swilken Bridge’. You have to cross this bridge to get to the green after your tee shot. This is where Tiger Woods, the ‘golf emperor’ in July of last year, shed tears before missing the cut in the second round of the Open.
The Swilken Bridge is being refurbished. On the 5th (Korean time), US Golf Digest and Golf Channel quoted a photo posted on Twitter by golf influencer ‘UK Golf Guy’ and said, “There is a round stone pad at the entrance of Swilken Bridge.” The photo shows a round stone structure on the floor at the beginning of the bridge. The structure is said to have been completed by the end of last year. 카지노사이트
The Golf Channel reported, “We have inquired about the repair work of the Swilken Bridge in St. Andrews, but have not yet received a response.” “It will take time to know exactly why the stone floor was added to the bridge.”
The reaction is not favourable. A composite photo of a barbecue facility and a chair on a round pad was also released. Some fans criticized it as “the worst decision, like drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa.”
Swilken Bridge holds the story of many golf legends. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus announced their retirement on the bridge. Tom Watson, who won 5 of his 8 major wins at The Open, said goodbye by kissing this bridge at his last The Open (2015).
