I have to admit that approaching the Swilcan Bridge I suddenly felt very moved by the history it represents and also by how unassuming it is. It is wide open to anyone and everyone. Stepping onto the Bridge is to share something with so many of the greats who have inspired us and, at least for me, was an unexpected reminder of the greatness every golfer feels, however rare, when we hit those most incredible of shots that keep us coming back. It’s a generous reminder that all of us, from Hall of Famers to hackers, have a stake in what makes golf so special. Even if you are not playing a round on The Old Course you can walk right onto the Swilcan Bridge in between golfers or, even better, go on Sunday, when the course is closed to play and open to the public for walking.
