    Always love viewing photos about golf courses etc., maybe we could have a thread with just images? Maybe not?
    Anyhow, from the back of the RTE Golf page I like this one...

    Great idea for a thread.

    Not a golf course but one of my first golf memories encapsulated in a picture. Seve at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 1988. He won twice at Royal Lytham & St Annes, 1979 & 1988.
    In 2001 David Duval another favourite of mine won there too. This year(in a couple of weeks) it's back there & I'd love to see Sergio follow in their footsteps and win his first major.

    The agony of this miss will live long in the memory. For Louis it's the moment the green jacket slipped out of his reach, for me it was the moment I wished I'd backed him each way! :rolleyes:
    I love the photo though, its almost better without the huge crowd in the background.

    It didn't hit the photographer. I know the guy who took it.

    This is a great picture i think,
    two of the best golfers of their generation,
    Faldo renowned for his steely determination,rarely if ever showing emotion,
    and the late great Seve who always wore his heart on his sleeve.
    seeing these two embrace and in tears really shows what the ryder cup means.
    this is my favourite ever sporting moment(this and C.L. final 1999)

    There is a savage picture out there somewhere of Amen corner in winter time (or certainly under snow!). It was the most fabulaous picture but I lost it! If anybody has a link to it it will be my new screen saver.

    Great idea for a thread. Here are two iconic images that spring to mind...

    9th at Royal County Down

    Some more moments of golfing agony...

    Greg-Norman_1378338c.jpg

    Greg Norman misjudges his approach on the 9th hole at Augusta National during the 1996 US Masters and reacts accordingly as his ball trickles back down the hill. He shot 78 that day to a Nick Faldo 67 and a 5 shot lead became a 6 shot deficit.

    2006usopen.jpg

    Colin Montgomerie departs the 72nd green of the 2006 US Open at Winged Foot. After a perfect drive, he mis-hit a 7 iron badly and made a double bogey 6 to lose by one stroke.

    Bernhard-Langer-1991-Ryder-.jpg

    Bernhard Langer misses a 6 foot putt on the 18th green at Kiawah Island to win a crucial point against Hale Irwin. Had he made it, Europe would have tied the USA in the match and retained the Ryder Cup following the famous tie/retention in 1989.

    thomas-bjorn_1945693c.jpg

    Thomas Bjorn watches as his ball trickles back into a bunker for the second time on the 16th hole at Royal St. George's during the final round of the 2003 Open Championship. Protecting a 2 shot lead at the time, a double bogey there would eventually see him lose by a shot to Ben Curtis.

    Apologies L.O.F.T but thats the only one I have as I found it on the net ages ago and just saved it to my pictures. Needless to say it wasn't me who took it. Fabulous picture all the same. Although I do have this one that I did take myself of the tee shot on the same hole. My camera is nowhere near as good as the other guys but it still shows the awesomeness:) of the 9th and RCD in general.

    Some courses I played in Jamaica a few years ago. Wasn't expecting much golfwise when I went there, but I was in for a nice surprise.

    On the teebox at first hole at White Witch.
