Thrills and Spirit of Adventure…

A long time ago, in a country not far away (across “the pond” actually), a golf course designer / architect set out to “modernize” the game by including undulating greens, long and narrow greens angled from the center of the fairway, fairly large and free-form bunker shapes, and substantial additional contouring. His many adventures included spending a significant amount of time studying / charting the Old Course at St. Andrews.


Rory McIlroy sinks 55 putts in a row

If you were watching early action from the Tour Championship at East Lake this past weekend, chances are you noticed the coverage of Rory McIlroy warming up on the practice green. The broadcasters wouldn’t leave it alone, and with good reason.

While the show was going on, they’d cut back to Rory time and again to watch him stroke the same putt over and over again… without missing. By the end of it all, Rory had sunk 55 putts in a row. Check out the video above for the replay.

For the record, after the round Rory mentioned the putt was around 10 feet. On the broadcast, Johnny Miller figured the putt was more like 7 feet. Take your pick.
