When the sun emerges above the English Channel next Sunday morning, it will appear to be shining the brightest over the British Isles, as Britons and Irishmen will constitute the majority of the names

Oh totally. All of the local news channels are going crazy. It's Clarke-mania! :-D

Got a pretty good laugh from this: Phil Mickelson Laughs Off 2nd-Place Finish, Blows Brains Out In Car | The Onion Sports Network

I'm rooting for Clarke and Jimenez. A lot of bogies for the early starters, this will be about who makes the least mistakes. A couple under par might win it.

Improbable chances? mmm pretty sure Clarke has the 3rd round lead. Just because your knowledge of world golf is that limited to american players doesn't mean you can comment on world golf matters.

Darren Clarke (-5) and Thomas Bjorn (-2) have each come agonizingly close to winning this championship in the past, but those near misses are ancient history. Both are extremely popular amongst their peers in the game, and were lost in the golf wilderness very recently. Tomorrow, both have improbable chances of gaining the ultimate redemption.

Sergio charging out of the pack

He's playing well, but it's probably too little too late unless all of the leaders really fall back. -2 for the day, but +2 total and he's 7 back through 5. He could make is interesting if he gets to -3, but that's asking a lot.

He's 3 under for the day and +1. He birdied 2,4 and 5. And playing a par 5 now

The Golf.com leaderboard hadn't posted the third birdie by the time I posted that. I meant -3 total though, not for the day.

I know you meant that. I'm just saying he was 3 under through 5...not 2 under through 5 as you said

20 feet for eagle on number 7

Alright, I must have read the leaderboard wrong somewhere... :doh:

Obviously they started with a great chance today. What's improbable is that they would both be back in the position to win the Open, when it has been nearly a decade since either contended here. Take the blinders off, my friend; I was offering some long-term perspective.

I may be off here, but it seems contrived for the announcers to suggest that DJ hitting one very poor shot on 14 is the same type of misfortune/choking that DJ had in prior majors.  It's not like he was in a position to win yet or anything.

    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
    • Day 212: Played 18. Shot an 81. Driver was all over the place. Short game was good. Irons were ok. Need to work on driver. 
    • I know four that have died, two in the last 10 days. How many people do you know that have had small pox? Polio?  The answer is none because we’ve eliminated it with vaccines. People survived those diseases too, but it killed millions.
