9. Royal Liverpool, Hoylake, England: Its fairways are flat, its vistas bleak and there’s internal out-of-bounds all over the lot. Somehow, though, this 2014 Open Championship venue ranks No. 69 in the world. Sure, it reeks with history. Walter Hagen and Bobby Jones took Open titles on this links. Tiger won here in 2006, but the course was so brown and fast, I couldn’t remember many individual holes. That’s why I need to play here.
