Today HomeofGolf.TV chats to Old Course caddie John Boyne on the topic of where the majority of players hit their tee shot on the 17th hole of The Old Course to. Typically they end up on the left side of the fairway in the rough which is thick and tangled, which makes it tough. John explained that it’s extremely difficult from this position to get onto the green. He told me that even professionals will leave their 2nd shot short, on purpose, to have a option to play a chip and run onto the green or a long putt.
