Royal Troon (8th Hole)

The par 72 links at Royal Troon was founded in 1878 and designed by one of the greatest of the early British golfers, Willie Fernie. The character of his creation is summarised neatly by the club's motto, Tam Arte Quam Marte, which means 'as much by skill as by strength'.
Royal Troon is host to perhaps the most famous par 3 hole in Open Championship golf. Known as 'The Postage Stamp', the par 3 eighth covers only 126yards and is the shortest British Open hole. However, the severely trapped green encourages what has been likened to the golfing equivalent of ping-pong and has claimed many celebrated victims, including a triple bogey from Tiger Woods at the Open in 1997
