It's St. Andrews But It's Not...

Let's make sure we're clear here. This week's Scottish Championship presented by AXA will indeed be played near the Home of Golf... but we're not talking about the Old Course. We're talking about the Torrance Course at Fairmont St. Andrews

Torrance Course at Fairmaont St. Andrews

Here's a link to an ET video that will give you some views of the course as well as some of the details. The short story is that Sam Torrance finished designing this course back in 2001 after original designer Gene Sarazen passed away and -- believe it or not -- this apparent links course was actually flat farmland before they got hold of it!

Another view of the course

The field is headlined by Lee Westwood, Matt Wallace, Padraig Harrington, two-time winner (this season) Sam Horsfield and recent Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open winner Aaron Rai.

GC's live coverage starts Thursday morning at 7:30am ET. This is an inaugural event at a relatively new course... but hey, it's still St. Andrews. This should be a pretty cool event!
