Golf - Good Walks Spoiled

Recommended Posts

The Open is upon us...

 

Rory, keep it tight fella, solid round to ease the pressure you’re no doubt feeling.

 

*McIlroy cards an 8 on the 1st*

 

FFS, mate.

Yeah McIlroy looked like he was feeling the pressure, but Woods (T144) looked genuinely awful. There’s quite a lot of good players are way down the leaderboard.

 

Lee Westwood was in good form, maybe a bit of a dark horse there....

Yeah, Woods looked in worse physical shape than he has in a long while.

 

Like Rahm at -3, and like you say Westwood and a few other old heads positioned nicely going into Friday.

The misjudgement by the press in the lead up to this has been great, Woods going to break Nicklaus’ 18 majors (although that had died down significantly over the past few weeks) and McIlroy being the favourite. Instead we’re getting a really interesting spread, some great golfers didn’t make the cut (looking at you Big Phil), defending champion Molinari way down the leaderboard and what seems like a bunch of golfers with the physicality of darts players leading the pack going into the weekend.

 

Makes a nice change from the usual athletic, photogenic good brand sponsors being talked about! 

 

Westwood winning would be an incredible Cinderella story. He recently offloaded a bunch of shite at charity shops near me (I was tempted by one of his US Ope participants trophy, only £125), so it would be great seeing him win.

Yeah, would love to see Westwood win.

 

Day is reasonably calm, at least it is for links anyway. Suggestion the weather is going to improve before getting sketchy tomorrow. Expect a few to make a move in the relatively good conditions.

The weather is wretched but Lowry remains comfortably ahead. Even par for the front nine should be enough, barring a David Duval-esque disaster on the back nine.

 

While such a wobble would make for some drama, it would be cruel on Lowry, given how brilliant he’s been over three and a half rounds.

Seemed like he had less trouble than pretty much anybody else. Amazing contrast in scores from day 3 to 4, that weather gave people so many problems.
