The question isn't what the club has the right to do, it is what it ought to do. The R&A, as a club, no longer governs the game here, it devolved that responsibility to a separate company some years ago. But it retains a symbolic status as the custodian of the history and ethos of the game. As such, what it chooses to do matters, in setting a tone and influencing public perception of golf and the way it is run. That being the case, it is ludicrous that at a time when the...
Creeping down. I'm impatient, but I have to remind myself that I only came back to the game in January after 6 years off, and Back in the day I was only an occasional golfer anyway. Plus I'm old. Started the year with some lessons and playing as much as I could, which earned me a handicap of 18.0. Playing more or less to that for a few months, with some ups and downs.

I've had an interesting time this past month. At the end of July I went to Scotland with some friends to play some great links courses, some of them famous, some less so.

Ilonen is tied for fourth with McIroy, but as far as the TV coverage is concerned he may as well have stayed at home.
Really? He's one of the most intelligent golfers out there, doesn't suffer fools (which means he gives the interviewers a hard time when they ask dumb questions), he has adry sense of humour, and he can play. What's not to like? Go, Henrik.
Stenson!
I'm liking Stenson's chances here. Nothing wrong with his nerves.
McIlroy starting to show signs of frailty. Still vulnerable when things don't go his way, imo.
