The Irish Open is being played at Royal County Down, one of the more interesting tracks in the world, and has a decidedly better field. Personally, I will be watching a lot of golf in the AM this week.

Yeah, I'll be watching the Irish Open, at least the first couple days as I'm anxious to see RCD. If the leaderboard is "meh" like last week, I'll probably tune out by the weekend.

Byron is usually a boring event for me, but Spieth is playing and if he can get in contention late Sunday, I'll probably be watching.

Ha, another good question. As last week, depends on the leader board. Colonial was much more compelling so I ended up spending far more time there than the BMW. We'll see what this weekend brings. I look for Rory to have a big week, he was drained last week but he got some rest and will bounce back strong.

Royal County Down is one of my bucket list courses, so I'll be watching that mainly.

Ireland for sure. Rory and Rickie: it doesn't get any better. And, no insult intended, but i am sick of texas.

Easily the Irish Open. It should be amazing.

I'll only be keeping tabs on Byron Nelson for fantasy golf reasons. There's a good chance I won't watch very much of it.

Royal County Down is one of the five greatest courses in the world; the TPC Las Colinas, or Four Seasons, or Whatever They're Calling It These Days, is probably the worst course the PGA Tour plays four rounds on all year. The field in Ireland is stronger at the top. I have to go into work on Saturday and Sunday. To the extent that I will be watching golf this weekend, it will likely be the Euros.

Y'all know that there's a time difference, right? There is no either/or, only both! :-) Irish for the course. Nelson for the field.

There's the time difference, but there are only so many hours in a day. Irish Open gets precedence.

Keegan Bradley just isn't a draw for me anymore. I'll be honest...that incident at the Match Play really changed my perception of him in a negative way. That's the way it is sometimes with players. Like Billy Mayfair....I thought he was a nice guy and then I saw him scream at a marshall like a jerk one time for something so silly at a tournament and completely changed my view of him.

I'd like to see these guys mix it up on Sunday at the Nelson:

Jordan Spieth

Jason Day
Dustin Johnson
Hunter Mahan

But it usually doesn't get that good

Day withdrew - along with IJP, Kinser, Oosty and a few others; better check on your fantasy teams before they lock in the weekly roster.
