The Open Championship at St Andrews is by far the best week in golf that only happens once every five years.

First of all, it’s been five years already? I’ve been covering golf for that long? I can’t believe how fast time has past, and looking at pictures, I’m startled at how much I’ve aged!

That was only the third tournament I’d ever covered (and my first for the WSJ), and I always refer to it as the “best-worst week” of my golf media career, which still holds true. It’s easily the most memorable tournament I’ve covered — not per se because of the actual golf and the result, as Sunday was sort of boring after Oosthuizen pulled away from the field.
