I’m not sure which is more difficult, competing with 30,000 people on a typical day to see the Mona Lisa or getting a guaranteed tee time to play the Old Course at St Andrews.
There’s only one of each and the demand to view one and play the other is absolutely through the roof.
One of the ways to at least get in the running for an Old Course tee time is the St Andrews Links Old Course Private Advance Tee Times 2020 program which starts on August 21, 2019 to September 4. It’s essentially a lottery, but at least it’s a chance.
