Carnoustie invaded by would be tamers

Amateur golfers from all over the world are desperate to tame the course that made a monkey of the world's best.

Hotels in Carnoustie have been flooded with bookings in the wake of the Open Championship which reduced hardened pros almost to gibbering wrecks.

"Carnoustie has been put back on the map," said tourism chief Colin Smith. "Golfers from around the world want a chance to tame The Beast.

"The whingeing of many of the top golfers has heightened the temptation for people to come and see for themselves just how difficult Carnoustie is."
