When I arrived to St. Andrews on Monday, I immediately headed to the Road Hole (after checking in and getting situated at the media center, etc.). I’ve been reading and hearing about it nonstop for the past month, so obviously I couldn’t wait to scope it out in person. (By the way, St. Andrews and the Open are amazing — more later, stay tuned!) I happened to come across Zach Johnson, who was practicing chip shots from the path in between the green and the road. I saw him duff heaps, blade a few and hit some to a foot.
