The Open Championship is just a couple of weeks away and so I thought I would reminisce a little about my only to trip to Scotland to witness the Open Championship firsthand. It has been a few years now–15 to be exact–but the memories are still ever present.
The day started out windy, cool and dry. These conditions led many to believe scores might go higher on this final day. While the windy conditions may impact some, it did not have any apparent effect on this year’s champion Brooks Koepka.
Today was the day most often referred to as moving day. The third round is the day to gain momentum and make a move to get close to or on top of the leaderboard…
Paul Casey looked to have done the deed and gone daft when he dropped four strokes in two holes early in the round.
The opening round of the US Open got off to a rip-roaring start with great scoring under sunny skies, and more heat. Ricky Fowler went in the morning wave and set the bar quite high with a seven under par 65.
Wednesday I took a detour from the US Open festivities and drove up to the new Mike Keiser (the developer of Bandon Dunes) resort at Sand Valley.
