A criticism of the way Scottish courses are run
Here's an interesting story that is highly critical of the way Scotland's top courses (Muirfield, Troon) are run and an argument that this fact is hurting the development of Scottish golfers.
The development of young golfers is, apparently, a worldwide issue. We argue about it in Canada and the U.S. and apparently in the home of golf as well.
How rare it is, these days, to have someone like Tiger Woods develop without having grown up playing at a country club. Is golf too expensive to attract the next generation of great athletes. I think it is....
