“As an amateur, I played Scottish Opens there in 1995 and 1996, and thought it was one of the best courses I’ve ever played. Then, I came back and played the Open Championship in 1999 and my opinion changed.

“Although I tied for seventh, it was probably the hardest British Open course I have ever played – even harder than Muirfield. The set-up was unfair and ridiculous. I remember stepping off the fairway at No. 6 and it was nine yards wide in the lay up area. That’s not much room when you have to hit a 4-iron in that space. It’s still a great course, but I hope the R&A has learned a lesson.”
