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.

Go Tommy! Or Lee, though he's a bit far back. With this course and weather, anything can happen.

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.

Probably not the first swing Lowry was looking for but it's in bounds.

Tommy sitting nicely in the fairway on the first. Bodes well.

...and his second was a beauty.

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.

Koepka has that “Why do I have to play with Holmes” look. Curious if there will be any post-round comments. When JB plays bad, he plays 10x slower.

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.
