68 at the British Open in the morning, golf with hickories at St Andrews in the afternoon

Published

on

Yes, golf fans, just another day in the charmed life (or week, at least) of one Brandon Stone.

Stoney (as I assume his friends call him), came to Carnoustie on the heels of a final-round 60 to win the Scottish Open. All he did in his opening round was fire a 3-under 68. Not bad!

But his Thursday to remember was only getting started as Stone made the 25-mile trip south to the Old Course to peg it…with a set of hickory clubs! Well played, sir, well played.

    They all have great talent.
    Since he’s had his 15 minutes of fame, we have probably heard the last of Stoney.

      Would be a shame too. Such a good golf swing.

    Why, why, why mess up your normal swing with different clubs in the middle of the Open??? This is really poor judgement.

      Because he’s a professional and not a weekend duffer?
