St. Andrew's Reset Record Book
By kickntrue on 6/30/10
St. Andrews may be the birth place of golf- but did you know they reset their record books in 2006?
The St. Andrews Links Trust, which manages the Old Course, has thrown out previous records because the Old Course has been lengthened. The official course record is 64 by Bradley Dredge in the 2006 Dunhill, matched last year by Mikko Ilonen.

"I'm disappointed," Strange said. "But in my mind, it's a wonderful memory for me. As far as I'm concerned, I still have it. And until someone shoots 61, the course record belongs to me."
I think this is a messy situation and I'm surprised the St. Andrews Links Trust had the audacity to get involved with it. I get it- the course is lengthened, but isn't that offset but newer equipment?
