2020 British Open For the Ages

So…

TheOpen.com, on July 16-19, will be showing on their YouTube, Facebook, etc. channels, an "Open for the Ages." They've combined footage of Jack, Tiger, Greg, Jordan, Gary… etc. into a fake "tournament" in which everyone plays against each other.

Looks incredible. I hope they can pull it off.

Preview has me excited. I’ve binge watched all of The Open youtube channel content in the last couple months, so I’ll definitely be watching.

Interesting! Hopefully it'll be available beyond those dates.

 

I can't stand Seve.

Good stuff! Saw the email last week and have been looking forward to it. Will have to watch it first but hope it’s entertaining.

Aloha,

I love the idea.  I seem to be the only person during this that hasn't had a chance to watch a ton of TV, so I hope they'll keep it available.

You and I have a lot in common.😁

I also don't like Seve...nor Bubba, Bryson, .... I can tolerate Cry baby Spieth.

I also don't like Player, Zach J, Jimmy Walker, Tom Watson....I know there are others.😁😁

On the LPGA I don't like Wie, Creamer, Stacy, Christina Kim, Kerr

I am definitely with you on the Player and Watson feelings.

Others on my list - JJ Henry, Aphibarnrat, Tim Herron, Montgomerie, Laura Davies, Shanshan Feng

I'm kinda worried about the outcome of this, based on a fairly small sample size.
10,000 seems small; for reference Boaty McBoatface received over 120,000 votes in another internet voting contest

Quote

The winner of The Open For The Ages has been determined by a fan vote, which registered more than 10,000 responses, and a data model developed in partnership with NTT DATA that utilises this fan vote along with player career statistics and historical data from The Open to calculate the Champion.

You left Rory Sabbatini off your list. Everyone dislikes him.

I hope the don’t use this as an opportunity to plug Jack as the GOAT. That would be disappointing.

It's not that he wasn't considered for the list, he was. But he got MAJOR points from me for the Ben Crane incident.

Shanshan Feng

I’m curious why her? I get she’s not exactly easy on the eyes but she’s a real character and has a good attitude, good humor.

To be honest, I'm an incredibly shallow person.

Aw, come on. We asked you not to give away the winner without a spoiler alert.

Good call @boogielicious. Really hope they don’t make this a Jack fan slob fest. I also hope they realize we want to see golf, not incessant bios on all the players.

I've never seen the 1st 4 play golf....I'm surprised you have the Big Thai on the list...why?....I would have thought him as really friendly....nit surprised about Mrs. Doubtfire....he seems like a grumpy guy.

I like Laura...but yes....she can be a bit standoffish.

In 2012, I was looking forward to meet and watch a fellow countrywoman Shanshan play golf....I gotta support the Great People of China.😁. I'm a BANANA and can only speak a few words of Mandarin and Cantonese. I bought some Chinese White Rabbit candies to snack on and was going to give Shanshan a bag of White Rabbit candies.

I said a few words in Chinese to her...I guess she thought I was a Chinese POSER...who could blame her...... and I didn't think she was overly friendly with the fans....I was shocked considering how jovial she is on TV....but some LPGA pros know when the cameras are rolling and act all bubble gum, cotton candy and pink ribbons when on TV, etc...e.g. Wie and Creamer.

So I kept the candies instead and shared them with other spectators....lol.....to heck with you Shanshan.

But the NEXT big STAR from China is Muni He....LMAO......Muni use to live in Vancouver....and a member at Swaneset....a course I often play in the summer time.....here she is in the below video at 12.....never knew who she was.
