Some pretty good scoring already today. Rain and wind hasn't kicked in yet though.

Have so much envy about how Tommy Fleetwood hits his irons. So pure.

Two pretty poor birdie attempts by him on the first two holes though.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 21 July 2019 13:16 (two months ago) link

Rickie out of bounds at the first thus a double bogey followed by three straight birdies.

Man Fleetwood's putter is stone cold. This could be over fast.

BBC is showing 3 hours solid of netball at the same time as the conclusion of the Open is on. Not too happy about that, to be honest. Not too happy.

Cool, I can see the last hole at least.

Arthur Lowe & Love (Tom D.), Sunday, 21 July 2019 17:03 (two months ago) link

Easy peasy in the end.

Arthur Lowe & Love (Tom D.), Sunday, 21 July 2019 17:13 (two months ago) link

crowd was pretty quiet on that stream i presume a quirk of the coverage

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Sunday, 21 July 2019 17:17 (two months ago) link

Anything but quiet on the radio!

Grats to lowry he owned it. Everyone else choked at least once.

For the second time this year an imperious last round performance from Jin Young Ko to win a major. She makes it look so easy (even in tough conditions). Felt sorry for Hoo Ji for getting a horrendous plugged lie right under the lip of the bunker at 14 which led to a triple and her falling out of the lead. Hope the weather stays fair for the British Open at Woburn this week.

That was one of the greatest final days play that I've ever seen! Hinako Shibuno wins on her major debut at 20 years old in her first tournament outside of Japan. Just incredible play and smiling all the way round every round. Salas played a great final round and was unlucky not to make a play off. Also Jin Young Ko only 2 shots off the winning score which would have been her third major victory this year, she is such an incredible player especially on Sundays.

Wish I could emulate Shibuno's swing but given that she's double jointed and her left arms bends the wrong way at address and takeaway I've got no chance.

iyo how long before they can run a proper mixed tournament with more or less equal chances? thinking short (by men's standards) but difficult holes etc. or is it just as stupid to compare men's and women's golf as it is for other sports

They had an event this year. I think it was either in Jordan or omam, I'm not sure. It was for ladies european tour players, senior European tour players and challenge tour ( level below regularEuropean tour). They did some equations based on average drive length of the respective tours and determined the tee boxes accordingly. A challenge tour guy won iirc but a woman was second and the top 20 had plenty of each grouping. The Australian LPGA/euro event at the start of the season has 2 separate events equal prize money same course where the groupings are alternate, 3 women tee off then 3 men etc. I think Celine Bouiter won the women's section.

Not sure how feasible the Jordan event is going forward cos there will always be arguments about how equal the hole length is etc. Would like to see a high profile mixed doubles event on the PGA or European tour though for sure.

Would like to know how much of the prize money for the Open comes from the TV rights, because now that the R&A runs the British Open for women it should sell the rights as a package with the men's and split the prize money equally, but I would guess they would argue that the prize fund comes from additional sources too.

wife and i were sitting at a bar eating lunch and caught the last two holes by chance. we were both chuckling at shibuno's (very charming) goofiness, like literally joking about how she was acting like she had never been in a big tournament before i googled her and found out....she had never been in a big tournament. then she turned out to be a stone cold assassin on that winning 20-footer. what an awesome story.
