Crisis averted: St. Andrews to leave 700-year-old Swilcan Bridge alone

Construction continues to restore the area around the Swilcan Bridge on the 18th hole of the Old Course at St. Andrews on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023, from St Andrews, Scotland. What was shaping up as one the biggest controversies in golf this year also turned out to be the shortest one. The outrage began with social media images of the St. Andrews Links Trust extending the start of the bridge to include a circular patio of stones that did not look like they had been there for 700 years.
