The players can't even go out for supper. If they are caught it is a automatic DQ. That's messed up. 

That's just the UKs rules though, athletes are fortunate to have been exempted to a certain extent & can prepare for the event as a result.

 

The alternative is an enforced 10 day quarantine, no leaving the hotel whatsoever.

Booking another trip across the pond for June 2022 and trying to work it out to play RSG - spending a week in St. Andrews then a week down in London.

 

Gonna be cool to play The Old Course a month before next year's Open.

When you sort through all the BS it still boils down to one thing that's perfectly clear. Revenue from fans is the #1 priority for the R & A. Not players.

I think it has to do with the metric system and Euro currency 🙂 


 

“One player, who spoke with Golfweek under the condition of anonymity, said he strongly considered skipping the major, which was canceled in 2020. Shane Lowry has had the Claret Jug for 22 months now after he won his lone major at Royal Portrush in Ireland in 2019.

 

“I’m going to go because it’s the British Open. But I certainly thought about not going. I just can’t believe with the numerous examples of successfully run safely held tournaments and majors here that they can’t figure out a better situation,” the player said.”

Wait, had to edit, Lowry didn’t say that, my mistake.

It is garbage that they will let 32k of people in but force the players to stay in a bubble requiring them to cancel any accommodations they had planned. 1 family memeber can go if they quarantine the 5 plus days before. Oh yeah you might as well cancel your tickets you bought for your whole family. 2 CV19 tests at min and if someone on your flight was positive you are done too. Oh dont go the where the 32k of fans are allowed to go or risk DQ. Get the vaccine and save lives but still you need to wear and mask and test the multiple times because trust the science except in this case or other political games like gender id.

 

I hope people do the same as the Olympics and say no thanks f*** the Brittish Open.

Right, they could always go play the Canadian Open....

Put your money on the euro tour guys for this event. It's going to be tough for the PGA guys, even more than ususal.

 

If the rules don't make sense then they are working as intended. It was never about making sense, it was about compliance and submission.

You need to take your baseless, clueless conspiracy theories elsewhere.

I cleaned out my golf bag last Friday and found it full of bits'n'bobs.   Then my buddy came over for a chin wag.  By time that was over, I was ready for an afternoon kip. 

 

 

Buddy? BUDDY?

Using Buddy in the UK would be like this:

"Then me mate popped round for a natter" may be better, depending on region.

Apologies to everyone. I didn't think starting a thread about The Open would cause so much upset. I didn't realise you were such a delicate bunch. 

 

As for people crying about the Covid restrictions on players. They probably don't affect you, so why are you so butt hurt about it? 

 

There seems to be a lot of upset and/or angry people on the forum at the moment. If anyone need a chat or a virtual hug. DM me. 

Peace bro! 


 

Hug it out!
 

Ya, everybody need to suck it up and shut up and play.

 

I hate restrictions, I’m vaccined, prolly already got covid like 50 times already being in nyc. But I’m wearing mask on subway platform and it’s 150*!

 

But I happy do it to protect my fellow mankind 😊

 

Then these golfers/caddies crying they can’t have sleep over parties together, lol

Like the British guy who was explaining our US constitution to me….lol.

The British also have problems understanding international politics. We all do.

They would have played the event last year instead of cancelling it if that is there stance even with international travel being greatly restricted at that time & the R&A would still have got good crowd numbers for the week. With having one of the highest levels of cumulative excess mortality rates across Europe last year from the deadly pandemic it's not too much to ask for these cautionary measures to be put in place this year if it means the event can go ahead. If it adds additional pressures of a being called 'Champion Golfer of the Year' then so be it. I'll applaud the guy that handles the challenge best, no matter where they're from.
