Where do we even start?
Where does that Open rank for you in terms of excitement? The tournament started on a bit of a downer with the news Rory McIlroy had withdrawn because of injury, and when the high winds forced this great championship into an extra day, we were left wondering whether we'd get that Open drama we all crave. Well, we did - and then some.
True, Zach Johnson was probably not the winner many of us wanted, but he was a worthy champion and showed immense bottle, especially on the back nine, and real class in the play-off. What was so absorbing were the many subplots: Jordan Spieth's heroic effort to make it three Majors in a row on his quest for the Grand Slam, Marc Leishman's final-day charge following a rollercoaster year that nearly saw him quit the game after his wife was diagnosed with myopathy, and Sergio Garcia's pursuit for that elusive first Major. Oh yeah, the amateurs weren't bad either…
The 144th Open Championship has provided enough talking points for the 19th hole for a good several months, that's for sure. Many of you will have been impressed by some of the shots that were pulled off by the world's elite players. Whether it's the bump-and-run, hybrid chip or punched 5-iron that you'd like to add to your locker, come and see us or click here. We're here to help.
Roll on Royal Troon.
