This comes from defending PGA champion Y.E. Yang: I thought I new St Andrews, I realize I have no idea What Yang does know is that he opened with a 67 and then St. Andrews hit. “The practice rounds here felt good but I couldn’t apply the feeling on the golf course when the conditions were not favorable,'' he said. "My reading of the weather, the wind speed and direction, was a bit off. I need to learn from this.'' Yang made the cut for the first time in three tries and closed out this 139th British Open with a 74 to finish at 3-over. “It was good to play in this sort of situations,'' he said. "The elements were so hard to play in. I can put that to good use in the latter stages of the PGA Tour season, considering as well that the last Major will be held in a windy course.''
Yang will defend his title next month at Whistling Straits where weather could also be a factor.
“You cannot be a better player without assessing your mistakes,'' he said. "It was a good learning process with what this golf course threw at us.''
