At Royal Troon, the Postage Stamp licks you

David Davies on British Open venue Royal Troon's 8th hole - the Postage Stamp. Along with the 17th's island green at Sawgrass, perhaps the most notorious par 3 in Golf. Swept by the Scottish winds, it plays 123 yards, with a tiny green surrounded by cavernous bunkers. The pros play this one with white knuckles, but it's compelling viewing, the sporting equivalent of sneaking a look at a car accident.
