In the Rough

July 17, 1960

American golfers, who think of grass two inches high as rough, can hardly imagine the trouble that awaited bad shots at St. Andrews in last week's British Centenary Open. The rough on this historic Scottish links is a tangled thicket of head-high shrubs called gorse, here growing so densely that it seems to swallow up a whole pathful of spectators walking between holes. But the worst part of gorse, as several unfortunate contestants found out, is that every wiry branch is a mass of stickers.
