Today in Golf – Tiger Woods New Course in Utah, St. Andrews Patio Redemption and more
Tiger Woods set to design 8,000-yard course in Utah
Earlier this week, Tiger Woods tweeted “I’m excited to announce my latest golf course design project at Marcella Club in Park City, Utah! The course will offer engaging play for every ability. My intent is to create a world-class golf experience to pair with Marcella Club’s vision for modern luxury living.”
At the Marcella location, TGR Designs will take on the first of their two courses, and their Woods designs will gain even more accolades when they join El Cardonal at Diamante in Cabo San Lucas, Bluejack National in Houston and Payne’s Valley in Hollister, Missouri.
“The course has been routed to take advantage of the incredible long-range vistas while also incorporating contrasting intimate valleys between the ridges to create a truly unique and memorable golf experience. The course will provide a stern test for low-handicap golfers, yet also present a fun, family-friendly experience to allow individuals of all skill levels to come together and enjoy the course.
“The championship course will feature generous landing areas helping players to keep the ball in play while still challenging players with strategic choices and angles off the tee for the best opportunities to score. The greens will vary in size and contouring to reinforce the tee shot strategy, but with green surrounds mowed tight, players missing the green will be able to use their creativity to make interesting recoveries.
“The partnership between Marcella Club and Tiger will be the premier golf experience in the Mountain West resulting in a championship course that will fully take advantage of the stunning Utah setting and be strategically designed to be playable for all.”

The golf world is praising St. Andrews’ latest act of redemption
The renowned Swilcan bridge at St. Andrews, one of golf’s oldest courses, recently sparked controversy when the news of its renovation surfaced; however, it seems now that the course has reversed its choice.
The discussion that erupted three days ago when St. Andrews declared its revamp of the Swilcan is now lastly ended. What happened? The course swiftly acted and remedied its blunders. Going to Twitter, the reputable Twitter page of St. Andrews Links released an announcement indicating it had taken away the freshly placed patio.
Further to recent communications about works in the area around the Swilcan Bridge, we have released an updated statement below.

2023 WM Phoenix Open expert picks by Patrick McDonald
Via CBSsports.com, golf expert Patrick McDonald has picked Tom Kim (25/1) as his winner for the upcoming WM Phoenix Open in at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona. McDonald attributes the win in part to Kim’s caddie, Joe Skovron, who won in 2019 with Rickie Fowler.
McDonald predicts Sungjae Im (30/1) to contend as well. Im’s success on par-5s over the past six months puts him in a great situation to go low here.
Finally, J.T. Poston (100/1) is Patrick’s sleeper of the weekend for the WM Phoenix Open.
