Van de Valde famously blew a five-shot lead in the final round of the 1999 Open at the Scottish course, providing one of golfs enduring images when he removed his shoes and socks while contemplating hitting a ball in the water as his lead disintegrated entirely at the 18th.The Frenchman decided against the shot, instead taking a drop which - when combined with his other strokes - saw him register a triple-bogey seven which meant the Open would go to a play-off. Justin Leonard and Paul Lawrie also contested that showdown, with Scotsman Lawrie prevailing to leave Van de Velde with thoughts of what might have been.Ahead of his return to Carnoustie for the Senior Open, Van de Velde remains fully aware of such memories but does not feel he is under any additional pressure because of his part in Carnoustie - and golf - folklore. Van de Veldees collapse led to a play-off, which was won by Paul Lawrie Its been such a long time since I really played so there is no expectation, he told Sky Sports News HQ.dddddddddddd Its a cliche but its a case of taking it a shot at a time and a hole at a time and hopefully I can be somewhere around on Sunday.Before that Open I played there in a Scottish Open in the early 1990s so I know this course - I know what it can do.Its a course that can give but it can take away quite quickly too, sometimes. Todd Hamilton, who won the 2004 Open at Royal Troon, will also contest this weeks seniors event, although he admits he is not currently producing his best golf.This is a different course for the seniors, it is set up short but it is still a very difficult test, Hamilton said. As always with links golf you have to stay out of the bunkers.I havent been playing very well but you never know when its going to click like it did 12 years ago at Troon.
