I used to be a big fan of the Open Championship but I’m not nearly as keen on this “British Open” thing that has replaced it.

Me neither tbh but we can only do so much, mate.

Watching the British Open just ain’t the same without the dulcet tones of Peter Alliss. I miss the bigoted, racist aul dinosaur.

I see the first day’s play started very late - at 8pm.

Still - the players didn’t complain at all and had all finished by 10pm.

I didn’t see any of last year’s tournament but I believe it was the same then.

The pace of play has clearly increased massively - I guess all sport is about pace these days.

Nice to hear a bit of the great man on commentary.

BBC’s new presenter Eilidh Barbour is also quite easy on the eye.

I hope she’ll earn enough out of this gig to buy a new kitchen.


Tomorrow will sort the men from the boys.

Some round of Golf from Zach Johnson considering everyone is struggling to post Par.

Play suspended. Must be teeming down over there. -4 leading it. Rmac in with a real shot now.

The final day’s play begins at 8pm sharp today.

All going well, we should have a winner at about 9:57pm.

Spieth in a world of shit on 13, drove the ball way right and is currently asking for officials for guidance.

Kuchar is on the green with a chance of a birdie. Both players are two clear on -8.

Chinese golfer Haotong Li is in the clubhouse on -6 after shooting a 63 earlier. He could win this yet.

Spieth is fucking about big time here.

If Rory birdies the last this could get interesting.

Indeed, he’s -5 now, the cunt.

Poor drive from the tee on 18 by McIlroy, he needs a miracle from there.

Spieth manages to only lose 1 shot on 13, incredible. McIlroy pars the last and finishes on -5.

Spieth nearly gets a hole in one with his next shot, the guy is unreal.

Spieth then rolls in a 35 footer for an eagle on the next hole. Absolutely fucking ridiculous.

People who attend golf events are absolute weirdos.


Another birdie for Spieth, Red Rover now.
