Carnoustie

The Links of Carnoustie is generally accepted as one of the ultimate tests in golf. The British Open returned here in 1999, with Scotland's Paul Lawrie winning a 4-way play-off, which included Frenchman Jean van de Velde, who needed only a 6 on the par-4 last for victory. Ben Hogan won here in 1953, and the par-5 6th Hole at Carnoustie was officially renamed after him in 2003 as Hogan's Alley, because of the Champions strategy of driving between the fairway bunkers and out-of-bounds, to set up winning birdies. Carnoustie once again will host the British Open in 2007.
