"Muirfield was the site of my first major championship, in 1959, so fond memories flow when I think of that beautiful place. My ancestors are from Scotland, and you'll never find more knowledgeable golf fans than the Scottish. I've always loved links courses, because no two days are ever the same given the elements. Just look back at the 2002 Open Championship. The weather on Saturday was so severe I think Tiger shot 81 or something while Sunday was just beautiful. From a design standpoint, I love the sharp, dramatic bunkering, and the fact that links golf gives you so many options to play all kinds of shots. Muirfield has stood the test of time, and that's the mark of a great design."
