The Robert Trent Jones-designed course opened in 1960 and has received two facelifts from his son Rees over the years. Molinari though‚ who is not one of the longest players on tour‚ but who played the weekend at Carnoustie on his way to the Open title without a bogey‚ is not buying it. The Bellerive Country Club now features a course with 7,547 yards and is a par 72.

The forecast is reasonable for the rest of the week, at least until Saturday, leaving players just one more day to study Bellerive, with its tree-lined fairways and large green complexes. Suddenly a golf tournament no longer seemed important. "So I'm coming in feeling pretty good about that", the world's third-ranked player said jokingly.
He has a 4-8-1 (win, loss, halve) record in the format, and is barely any better in four-ball (5-8-0), in which two players play their own ball, and take the best score on each hole. "There will be a lot of people, I know that", Thomas said.
