HOLE 1 442 YARDS, PAR 4 From the tee, a drive in excess of 250 yards is needed to carry the “Kitchen”—the renowned valley that crosses the fairway. With less than 30 per cent of all drives finishing on the fairway in the 2003 British Open at Sandwich, finding the short grass for most proved to be anything but a snack. Take Jerry Kelly, who began with an 11. Even the then world No.1, Tiger Woods, at the top of his game opened the event by carving his drive to the right, missing the fairway by 30 yards. A lost ball and triple-bogey seven left golf’s biggest star without a hold on what would have been his second claret jug. Although being a tad embarrassed he was left red-faced. This year players will find the first more to their taste with tournament organisers widening it by 12 yards. Well, it’s not the US Open I guess.
