Oliver Wilson blasted Open officials for making a mockery of the 139th edition of the tournament at St Andrews with some "bizarre" pin placements.
"It was unplayable. It was a joke out there," said the 29-year-old from Mansfield.
"Every single pin was on the high point on every green and knowing the wind is going to be like this [it] makes no sense.
"Obviously I'm a little bitter because I've not played very well but I think they have made a mockery of the tournament and that's a bit of a shame.”
