rain I am not a fan of but the wind, 15mph is just a normal day!

Guess we didn't know what we were missing (Essex and Kent). Yup, we're just tourists and hit the tourist trails in Devon and Cornwall, hiked in Cotswalds, not exactly places where struggling people would be found, more like being dropped off in the middle of a BBC historical period tv show. But the golf in SW England is so good.

Wind for sure - be great fun. Rain: no. Even with the quality bad weather gear these days, it's still not fun.

Yeah! Now that's how you open The Open Championship :-D

That had to be a pretty emotional start for Clarke too, well done!

Yikes. This has been a brutal start for the splitscreen ads + the regular ones :-s

Time to call it a night for trying to watch this thing live, but I want to see a few groups play 4/5 tonight darnit.

The coverage on Sky Sports so far has been great. A few advert breaks but nothing too much and they only last for a minute at a time which is fine in my book.

> Can we reply to individual posts anymore? Doesn't look like it. Anyway, for the two guys who had the car accident, I've been to the Republic and N. Ireland about 5 times (for golfing mostly) and along with SW England where I recently toured (yah, golf too) I met the friendliest, well informed and resilient people, more so than any of my travels and I've traveled extensively. I encourage others to go to England or Ireland and experience whatever they're there to do. We bought one of those National Trust memberships (if you're American they call it the Royal Oak Society) and you can get in free to any of the National Trust sites as well as park for free (which often turns out to be quite a savings.). Anyway, even if you golf your brains out you might consider seeing a bit more of the country.

 

I'm a little biased but the people in the north west of England are said to be (some of) the nicest. And we have top-class golf courses to go with it along England's golf coast. For any golfing trip to England you must visit the north west.

Similar to National Trust there's also English Heritage. You can get access to over 400 historic places including castles etc. to re-live a bit of our medieval history and beyond to 6000+ years ago!

I'd play it every day if I could. It's what I grew up playing (albeit I was in West Cornwall)

I've added Portrush to my bucket list - it looks fabulous - how golf is meant to be played.

I struggle to understand your logic - it's an Open because of the entry criteria, not where it's held. I don't know how things are done in the US, but most British clubs have a Club Championship and an Open Championship - the former is for members and the latter is (amazingly) open to anyone to enter. My old club did not play it's Open championship at a different course :|

I'd love to be able to hit a 2 iron far enough to get into trouble...

Looking to get a bet on Rory missing the cut but can't find one any where, probably too late now as he will be evens or worse.
