....and so it begins...late start today early tomorrow may be best side of draw...Rahm or Oosthuizen for me...but Rory winning would be great.

Pales into insignificance compared with David Duval, played 3 off the tee and then found the provisional he was playing was not his ball so back to the tee so now 4 off the tee and looking at a very large bogey, god knows what it will be at the end but gives hopes to us hackers !!!!

Isn't it refreshing to watch the Golf without some loud mouthed pissed up Yank screaming get in the hole, or mashed potato everytime someone takes a shot!

Jordon Spieth going along nicely, when his putter is working he looks like he can putt anything within 15 feet of the hole.

In these weather conditions the course becomes relatively easy, need the wind and rain to come in to give the course some protection.

....forecast of rain and wind 21mph suggests the final day could be interesting.

Will he make the cut? 2 to go and 1 needed

7 birdies today - that makes up for two holes yesterday :)

Nice to see Shane Lowry win - his previous caddie used to drink in my local many years ago and Shane popped in a couple of times when he was playing at Wentworth, really nice guy.

Fair play to Lowry- fully deserved champion. Perhaps we’ve been spoilt recently with grandstand finishes in various sports but the tournament seemed to lack much of drama this year.

Really? First 3 days were extremely tight until Lowry birdied 3 of the last 4 holes day 3. Yesterday was more about handling different weather conditions which seem to affect some top golfers the most.

The 4th day was completely ruined as a spectacle by the weather

The scores were dreadful

No one had a chance of catching up the Irishman

All he had to do was try not to drop many shots and the title was his

Indeed. Gee Bee, nice to see them not looking so god-like as they were on Saturday. Koepka’s first four hole bogeys and then an eagle 😳
I’ve currently got a bad dose of the J.Arthurs and it was reassuring to see Justin Rose hit a perfect one on 9 yesterday. Think I’ll message him to reassure him that’s it’s almost the perfect shot 😀

I would disagree as the weather showed up the faults in all those guys that play on big wide fairways with rough as long as most people’s back gardens and where those that drive long can eat up the course.

Yesterday after a disastrous first hole Lowry showed how Links golf should be played in tough conditions.

I enjoy watching and playing golf but links golf is a different animal and requires some very different skill sets.

Overall think it was a very entertaining 4 days viewing with some real highs and real lows

I thought the 2019 Open was pretty much par for the course
