This is a set of photos taken during the 2009 trip to Scotland.
Comments are sparse. Someday I will add some additional comments. If you have any questions -- give me a shout.

I hit this green fine; although a little-bit in the front. The wrong level.
After my first putt, I was off the green - to the back.
After my second putt, I was on the correct level.
Two putts later, in the hole.
My only 4-putt of the day.... although the 9th is also a possible 4-putt on some days!

I will never play this tee... Some people will.

Shared green, with the 18th.
If the player misses this green and/or is on the "wrong" level of the day: 3-or-4 putts are probable.
When you get to this green - Forget about how many strokes it took to get here this front nine.
Just, enjoy the day.
