Australia choking worse than Adam Scott at the British Open?
Thanks Tom Watson! Yesterday I saw an interview with veteran golfer Tom Watson on TV. At one point, talking about his first British Open win, he said "I was hitting the ball solidly", later on in the interview he corrected himself on the fly , saying "I hit solid...no, solidly". At least somebody in the golf world knows how to speak proper English. "Hit" is a verb, and needs an adverb modifier - usually ending in "ly". How many times do we hear and read golf pros (and far worse, writers) say "hit it solid" or "hits it pure". Terrible stuff... Thanks Tom!

Not really a rant but. just a question: Do you have to be a total knob-head to be in the government? Example one: Sports Ministar, Hugh Robertson, has suggested that golf clubs that don't allow lady members should be barred from hosting THE Open Championship ( I use capital letters because there is no such thing as the British Open, it is considered THE Major Championship). As far as I know the only venue that doesn't have lady members is St. Andrews - the HOME of golf! I think that the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Phil Mickleson, to say nothing of Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus may well disagree with him! Example two: Nick " I've never done a day's work in my life" Clegg suggests that all workers should be given the opportunity to work "flexi-time". Well Mr. Clegg may I ask.when I was a teacher would you allow me to work from 6 to 9 a.m and from 4 to 8 p.m. i.e when there were NO pupils in school? Or, better still.before I went to college I worked on the production lin ...
Just had the opportunity to watch the last round of the 2012 British Open. Australian Adam Scott had a five shot lead with six holes to play, a dead certainty when Adam had Tiger Woods former caddy on the bag with him. Adam then lost by a stroke to "The Big Easy" Ernie Els. Steve Williams, Scott's caddy should have been sacked on the 18th green. For a bloke who is supposed to know how to get his man to the finish line his "so called" expert advice was sadly lacking. Williams has has made a lot of money on the back of Woods but has been exposed in my view. Scott is ranked five in the world, he can make golfs highest ranking if he gets rid of the passenger on the bag.

My fave Ryder Cup moment came when Justin Rose sank a L-O-N-G putt to tie Phil Mickelson on the 17th hole, and Phil responded with a big smile and a thumbs-up. That's golf and that's sports. Rose also birdied No. 18 to win the match and continue Europe's giant comeback. Again Mickelson grinned and whacked Rose's shoulder. Way to go, Phil! (P.S. -- Rose led most of the British Open and lost at the end.)

British Open now on the clock in men-only debate - Kansas City Star
Female golf enthusiasts of the world, I've got good news & I've got bad news. Good news: Augusta, GA, home of the Masters Tournament has finally allowed women to be part of their Country Club. Yep, Condaleeza Rice, what a Freedom Fighter. Oh my God, she's African American too! Didn't think about that until now. Bad news: Next years British Open is taking place at an all male Country Club, so Condi is ineligible. But don't fret, I have a solution: Condi goes to England on a goodwill tour, bows to the Queen, & as Prince Charles bends to kiss her hand, she pulls out a 9-iron out of her pants suit at caps 'em in the knee! What? What! Too violent? Come on, they got it coming. We haven't kicked their butt since the War of 1812, saved their *** in WW II, & what does Prince Charles need with a knee anyway? He's chauffered everywhere, & I'm not advocating killin' the clown, just some physical disablement. He needs it...that & some flouride for his teeth.(BA DA BOOM) Have a happy day! (HEE HEE)
Whether you play golf or another sport, you can learn two important lessons from Adam Scott's devastating final round at the 2012 British Open.
After a day of thinking, I am happy that Augusta finally took a step in the right direction and let women in. That shouldn't be as shocking as not allowing black members until 1990. But I won't applaud them for their efforts yesterday. I am still left wondering why now? Why these two? This particular club is one for the movers and shakers of the world. It is a club where the extremely powerful go and conduct business, then go out and play 18. Look at the resumes of the two women who are now members. If this is the standard that women have to achieve to be a member, your average women golfer is out of luck. Perhaps it would have been more beneficial for Ms. Rice to hold a press conference declining the invitation to membership. Maybe. This move just stinks of hidden agendas masked by public perception. Oh, and next years British Open is held at an all male club. Will we be discussing this issue then?
Augusta National Golf now admits women? Bravo! (er, Brava!) Welcome to the 197s, Augusta. I wonder what would have happened if men of conscience had refused to play there until women were admitted? If Tiger had stood up and said, *** no I won't play here! (He can afford it, and he's the most public figure.) Why, maybe these guys could now do this for the British Open at Muir (I think) where they don't admit women! We are all outraged about the Boy Scouts but I don'[t see any male golfers (or female golfers for that matter) refusing to play at a place that discriminates against women. That would, of course, mean missing the chance for a big paycheck and a trophy. First things first, and all that.
Congratulations to Lydia Hall, Beth Allen, Rebecca Artis and Trish Johnson, who are all fully exempt for the Ricoh Women´s British Open.

Congratulations! It’s been more than four years. 32-year-old Spanish Sergio Garcia won the Monday finish Wyndham Championship at Sedgefiled Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina as his eight career on PGA Tour since 2008 Players Championship. He closed with a 66 at 18-under for two-shot victory over Tim Clark and Bud Cauley. “I think that a lot of the things that I did last year really helped a lot. Like I said before, you know, the way I played the U.S. Open and then the way I played in Germany to get myself into the British Open, the way I finished the year in Europe and, you know, at the end of the day for me, I'm the one -- sometimes it hurts to hear people not giving enough credit to some of those wins because they're in Europe.” Garcia said. Even bigger accomplishment for him, he is trying to secure automatic spot for the European Ryder Cup Team, which will compete against the US at Medinah in September. This time, his win to give a huge boost to his Ryder Cup candidacy. The 10 automatic ...
When God Engraved Your Name. A person doesn’t have to be a golf fan to empathize with Adam Scott. With four holes to go he had a four shot lead in the British Open. Four shots! Par the final quartet of holes and the trophy was his. Might as well have told him to chew gum. He could par these holes in his sleep. Everyone knew the tournament was his. A craftsman in a nearby workshop began sketching the name Adam Scott on the winner’s medal. But disaster struck. Missed putts. Wayward shots. The next thing he knew, he was scrambling to make a ten-foot putt to force a playoff. He missed it. “Wow,” he mouthed, chin trembling. ... The most poignant moment of the collapse might have been the camera shot of the engraver as he was given the news. He stopped his work and, gulp, erased Adam Scott’s name from the first place medal. Viewers offered a collective groan. Many Christians can relate. We fear the same will happen to us. We fear the fatal stumble, the ultimate collapse. Might we fall so utterly that ...
Sergio Garcia has given us every reason to cheer against him these past few years. Emotionless both on the course, the woe-is-me attitude, the “I’m not good enough” quote from the Masters this year, the ridiculous “I’m playing against more than that field” quote from the ’08 British Open and so many...
Congrats to UTC's Stephen Fox for winning the US Amatuer Golf Championship! Earns a bid to the 2013 Master's & British Open!
A UTC (University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for my cruise ship friends) student just won the US Amateur golf championship! That's the Nobel prize of amateur golf. Steven Fox. He was seeded near the bottom. 63rd or so. The golf team has always been good at UTC thanks to a great coach but that is just outstanding. Now he'll be invited to the Masters, US Open, British Open, and will have a 10-year exemption into the US Amateur. Unless he turns pro. He doesn't have a great swing and admits he doesn't like to practice. My brother says he wouldn't make it on the PGA tour. I say go for it. You only go around once. And he won the US Amateur!

2 Tips on How to Avoid the Mental Mistakes That Cost Adam Scott the British Open
2012 Ryder Cup: Team Europe Names Vice Captains: The thrill of Ernie Els' win at the British Open and Rory McIlr...
During the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational pro golfers were asked a question: What's the strangest thing you've witnessed on the course? The reply from Brandt Snedeker: "I saw two guys at the British Open last month get into an umbrella fight. I mean, they literally hit each other in the face with umbrellas. They almost came to blows, but the police got in the middle of it and separated them. It was pretty funny, actually."
Good to see Bubba Watson earn Ryder Cup berth. Watching him at British Open, amazing to see how much fans come to see his awesome power.
I just read this on a golf blog and had to share it. Apparently the blogger is an author from Orlando FL and pasted this in from his book: "From my novel. The setup - Billy is a fictitous touring pro who is trying to get his life and game back together. His caddy is Shakes: Billy liked playing the John Deere Classic anyway. “Great event for the meat and potatoes guys on the tour. Most of the big names skip it to head over for the British Open. That leaves a nice purse for the rest of us.” And the crowds at the John Deere liked Billy. He was ‘one of them,’ as a result of his reputation of being a bit of a partier, his salty language, and, of course, his brashness. Billy definitely was not a cookie-cutter Robo-Pro. And in the first round, his gallery was larger, and more vocal, than what normally follows him. An example was when Billy was on the tee of the third hole, a brutally difficult dogleg-left 470-yard par four. Going through his usual mental checklist, he visualized a hard-drawing drive tha ...
Me and my 3 boys watching Ernie Els getting out of the rough at the British Open 2012. Els won the British championship
August 13th, is Ben Hogan's birthday. Hogan along with Sam Snead and Byron Nelson were all born in 1912. In 1953 Hogan won the U.S. Open The Masters, and the (British) Open. He did not compete in the PGA due to it conflicting with the (British) Open. He played only one British Open, it was in 1953 at Carnoustie, which he won. Just think, Hogan might have been the best course manager, Snead possibly one of the best golf swings, and Nelson the straightest hitter who still holds the records for most consecutive tournaments won. All born in 1912.
Rory plays almost blemish free golf to win US PGA & 2nd Major. Well done Adam Scott showed resilience after British Open just by being in contention just outplayed by McIllroy & Poulter. Tiger went Cactus... literally he he!!

Lol! Well done to the Aussies finishing 10th! Also congrats to Bolt on the Triple!! Paralympics is next where even greater talented & inspiring athletes battle it out!! :D
I wouldn't mind seeing Adam Scott winning the PGA today since he collapsed at the British Open
Just got back from a dream golf trip to Ireland. Played Portmarnock, Port Rush, Castlerock, Port Stewart, Ardglass & Royal County Down twice! I'll never watch the British Open the same way again. I am glad to home with family, cold cokes & air conditioning though.
Adam Scott has new fans at Pga Championship after British Open ...: Adam Scott shoots 75 at Pga Championship 201...
This Pga Championship feels like a British Open.with palm trees
With all this wind, I feel like I'm watching the British Open instead of the Pga Championship
Recap of Chip Lutz's victory in British Seniors Open Amateur title posted.
I wish it was this windy at the British Open..
Tiger Woods was right there during the British open the first 2 days, the weekend is where it counts, also where he fell apart
When did the Pga Championship become the British Open?
Tiger is looking pretty good, but he's also looked good on the Friday of the US Open & British Open & done nothing on the weekend.
why is the British Open being played in South Carolina this week?
Open question to fans of the British Basketball League If live, audio broadcasts were available, would you listen?
progression in 2012 majors: T40 at Masters, T21 at US Open, and then T3 at British.

a brave discussion on an open forum - dialogue regarding grief and upset is not typically 'British' for opening this out
"I may have won a few more fans. Unfortunately, it was from not winning the (British Open). Hopefully, I can change that here."
Playing golf today makes me feel like I am playing in the British Open because of how windy it is.
Is this the British Open or the PGA???
Just sold...Framed British Open Championship Auto 8X10 with his Rookie...was real nice...sorry
Weird year when the PGA looks more like British Open than the British Open... But Lefty is still being Lefty
The nasty winds that were supposed to create British Open havoc? They're at the Pga Championship today in S.C. Could be bloody stuff.
A British Open has broken out during the PGA.
7th in the PGA British club pros. 75 68 69 70 -6. Exempt into next year's finals and final qual for the open.
That awkward moment when the PGA plays more like the British Open than the British Open.
Congratulations to Chip Lutz on his defense of the British Senior Open Amateur! 5-shot victory!
We haven't forgotten - we're about to open a restaurant with loads of it!
That's some nasty British Open style winds at the PGA
John Daly is two shots off the lead in the PGA. Right now the weather is approaching wrath of God like conditions. Kinda like it was in 1995 when he won the British Open. Go Big John!
At least one major this year had British Open conditions! Love it!!
well, as I always say, like when I won British open w/ Paddy Harr @ 20-1, who better to back in this fine Irish Weather?
Congrats Oussama 4 gold at May people of swim as powerfully thru new waters of democracy
Didn't expect to see British open weather at a Pga Championship
It appears Mother Nature took the British Open off but is making up for it at Kiawah.
Kiawah is making up for the absent wind and rain at the British Open
Finally the rain has arrived at Kiawah. This PGA is more British Open-like than the Open ever was -- sans the 105 heat index, of course.
Hi Stu, as the first departure of the day isn't until 18.20 there is very little use for check-in to be open all day. The 1/2

Isn't this what the British Open was supposed to be like?

Belly putters on my mind.should these be banned by the PGA? 3 of last 4 major winners using the long putter. Unfair advantage? Or is this technology similar to other advances like the big-headed driver or the utility club? Tiger has opined that the putter should be the shortest club in the bag. Ernie also says they should be banned yet he just won a British Open using one!! What do you think?
Boisterous galleries could not get enough of a middle-aged John Daly playing like the old John Daly, as he shot a 68 in the first round of the P.G.A. Championship.
Most memorable Golf day in 3 years !! with my 3 other mates. Played in 45 km/hr wind, felt like british open or worse! Yet we took up the challenge, while others were hiding..hats got blown away, body was unstable all the way, pulley fell several times etc etc yet we all laughed and laughed with madness and fun!!! It was a nightmare for golf looking for good score yet we had so much fun! Got to do it again lol! Too crazy.

Hitler gets very angry after he finds out Australia's Adam Scott threw away a four-shot lead to surrender the British Open to Ernie Els.
My retired neighbors yard (who has a lawn service) looks like the fairway at Augusta. Which makes my yard look like the rough at the British Open. Time to mow

On Friday, Douglas was picked as the Honorary Captain of the Els for Autism Golf National Tournament. He was picked out of many children across the country. Ernie Els is a PGA pro (who recently won the British Open) and has an Autistic child, Ben. This is quite an honor because Douglas will be the feature. Also, I heard this will be on the Golf Channel and maybe other networks on Seot. 12 in Houston. Janice and I are very proud of him.

I've been spoiled by Euro, Wimbledon, British Open, Olympics. Don't know how my body will react when I can't wake up and watch live sports.
I cannot wait until the 2016 Summer Olympics. I think Golf is gonna be awesome as an Olympic sport. What do you think would be better to win though? The Masters, US or British Open or an Olympic gold? I know the history of the all 3 of those is huge but an Olympic gold would be awesome to win I think.
