Koepka is paired with Holmes tomorrow;  think he'll go to the restroom for five minutes in the first few holes to get them put on the clock?  

Hope he does something like that on hole 2. With this kind of weather JB will step like Kevin Na in his worst nightmare.

Not a fan of Lowry.  Anyone but him.  Westy, Holmes, Koepka even and I’m not a huge fan of him either 

Im a bit like that myself .  Was standing close to Lowry when he was trying to Qualify for the US Open at Walton Heath (UK)  a few years back and he was cussing like a trooper in front of kids . Ok maybe having an off day but Id rather see someone else pick up the jug , like anyone from England !

I think it's great to see these two in the final pairing as I think they are the 2 best players in the world yet to win a major.

Westwood. Fowler. Bryson. Rahm. Xander. Kuchar. Casey. Finau.

All better players without a major. And I stopped looking quickly.

Opinions, opinions.

Others can have them, you know.  Not just you.

Of the golfers you listed - sure, debatable, especially for Rahm and Fowler imo.

However, I'll stick with Fleetwood and Lowry as the best 2 players out there not to win a major yet. Hopefully one of them will be removed from the non major winning list today.

MacIntyre reportedly confronts Stanley for not yelling fore

For a player who made the cut in his major-championship debut, Robert MacIntyre wasn’t all smiles Friday at The Open.

The 22-year-old Scot was reportedly unhappy with his playing competitor Kyle Stanley and confronted the American for failing to yell fore on two wayward shots – each of which hit spectators – during his second round at Royal Portrush.

“Aye, there were harsh words,” MacIntyre told The Scotsman. “It wasn’t too pleasant. But you’ve got to tell him it’s not right. He didn’t take it well at all.”


MacIntyre said that Stanley hit a marshal on the leg on the 14th hole before striking the mother of MacIntyre’s caddie, Greg Milne, on the 17th hole.

“We’re shouting fore as the ball is coming into the crowd, and he’s just standing watching it,” MacIntyre said. “And people didn’t have enough time to react when we shouted. It hit Greg’s mum, so I told him how it was. I said I wasn’t happy – and he didn’t really like my response. He’s the only one I’ve seen do that. It was straight into the crowd. It was into the crowd from the word go. And we’re expecting him to shout fore. She’s all right, I think, but it’s not what you want.

“… It’s on the [player information] sheets, it’s on everything, you shout fore.”...

I can understand why he'd be upset.

The problem could be solved by making sure warnings are issued and ultimately removal from the golf tournament after a warning if it happens again.

Not sure which is worse, just watching commercials, or watching the golf on a small square in the upper-left hand corner while the rest of the screen is devoted to the bloke from Oz trying to sell me auto insurance from his imaginary insurance university.

Zoinks.  Callaway has some explaining to do as well.

I think you mean "Xoinks"...

Ok, ill be that guy. It’s not called the ‘British Open’. It’s not even being played in Britain.

I did that on purpose. Calling it "The Open" sounds douchey.

Really? He seems likeable. I normally don't like fat golfers, but he seems cool.

Wow Koepka actually playing like this is a non-major. Maybe it’s the frustration of playing with Holmes.

Sounds like it’s about to get pretty wicked out there.

Looks like Koepka has learned that you don’t tell the world you are the best ball striker In the field... on Saturday.

And making reference to Lowry and Bethpage has definitely angered the golfing gods.

Keopka is struggling...despite his eagle on 5.

Maybe his game is limited and can't handle the conditions or maybe he's just lost it because he has to play with the snail.  Who knows, but his race is run.

Lowry in short sleeves in this weather is quite impressive.  Might be one of the only ones at Royal Portrush out for a Summer stroll.

    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
    • Yeah yeah but hey it gets better lol    USA have won 3 of the past 12 !!!!!   25% when I went to school, but you’ve conveniently forgot about that. Europe let you win so you keep coming back lol…
    • Lesson 9/25: Some bad things had crept into my swing, and I think I have the tools to fix them. Setup: I was setting up a little to close to the ball. Not sure what precipitated this, but as soon as instructor pointed it out, I stepped back maybe 1/2 to 1 ball and right away addressing the ball felt more comfortable. I've started fidgeting with my right hand grip at setup again, resulting in an overly strong right hand. This seems to happen when I stand over the ball too long, maybe because I am not committed to the swing. Worked on increasing grip pressure with this hand through backswing. I'll need to work on this. Backswing: Need to get a little more depth, but otherwise okay. Might have been I was focusing too much on downswing that I short changed backswing. Nothing major to work on right now. Downswing: Clubhead exit was too much up and out, and not enough left. Worked a bit with a PVC/pool noodle plane thing in front of the ball to get a feel for the clubhead exiting more around and left, and less up, after impact. Might pick up some PVC pipe, elbows, and a tee-fitting at a hardware store, or maybe order a Pure Plane Pro device for this. Everything in the downswing looked pretty good up until club delivery, where I was shoving/flipping my right hand pretty hard. Right before delivery, clubhead was in a good position, but I was still shoving/flipping it closed through impact. Tried out a feel/thought of holding the face open through impact. Initially instructor just had me try to hit the ball with an open face and hit a push-slice way right. Even though it felt like I was leaving the face wide open, the ball was not atrociously offline right. After a few balls of getting used to the concept, I backed off the feel a little bit and was hitting the ball pretty straight. It'll take some work to deprogram my right hand/arm for this one.
    • You are correct, Titleist has really upped the distance on last years TS models and even more so on this years.  The older ones always carried the moniker of being for people who were concerned with shot shaping over distance.  Now a days if you want to sell a driver, distance seems to be the number one concern and it’s good to see Titleist jumping on the bandwagon because they make nice looking driver heads
