Matsuyama finished 5th yet was hardly given a moment's coverage. Dare I ask why?

Mate needs Spieth for 2500 everytime he shanks one I will be cheering, not bitter.

Played twilight last night, got half day today and playing Sat and Sun, fucking love it.
he cashed out for 1350 on Friday night, silly move. Great bet though

Probably gutted now though?!

Did he do an E/W bet or was it part of a bigger bet?

I got Speith @ 12/1 last Wednesday.
He put £50 on Chelsea to win and btts against stoke and Spieth to win in a double so he actually won thanks to Charlie Adams freak goal. He's a little bit gutted but his still up 1300 so not really too down on it. I wouldn't have cashed out on Friday personally but I can see why he did golf can change really quick and being only 21 you wouldn't of been shocked if nerves did get the better of him.

Cracking if not random bet.

Speith was excellent but Rose and Mickelson amongst others so unlucky, -14 would have won it most years so imagine they are secretly gutted at playing so well and missing out.

Also got on Speith at 11/1 pre tournement. Happy days.

Woods is two holes in and 2+. I hope he doesn't embarrass himself again.

It's just gone 12pm and Tiger is already 10 shots behind Spieth. He's 9 shots behind Neibrugge and he's an amateur.

He's gone from being a spectacle for the right reasons to being one for the wrong reasons. And, unfortunately for him, the latter is almost as compelling to watch due to how good he once was. He certainly deserves credit for continuing to try though.

Looked like a good day for scoring so makes Woods round even worse.

Spieth straight on it to go to -12, should be an interesting day.

Poor of the BBC to only start coverage at 1:45pm - probably a little dig at the R&A maybe?

Going to be a play-off surely?

Should have been online coverage at least if they didn't want to disrupt live coverage.

A guid dram
Bah, another mouthy Yank wins it, was rooting for Oosthuizen.

A pretty tortuous tournament this year (and I mean that in a good way), with all the delays with the weather, having to play an extra day, then the tight leaderboard, and ultimately a three-way playoff. It turned out to be a classic Open all in all. I should have went tbh, but saw how dreach it was so decided rather than drive over there, never finding a car space, and walk about in all that cold and rain, I'd just sit on my arse and watch it instead! :D

Not sure Zach J can be classed as "another mouthy yank", always seemed really humble to me, but with some honest emotion inside as well. Comes across as a nice guy to me, unlike that manufactured soft arse Spieth.

Anyone watching the US PGA? I'd love Rose to do it but it looks as though he's left himself too much to do.

If I ever won the lottery, going to Augusta would be at the top of my priority list.

Just been to the driving range for the first time in 18 months. Thought I'd record my first swing to see how horrible it was...

First round today after an arm op and it wasn't good.
Played Cumberwell Park in Wiltshire which is a very good course if you're ever down this way. 4 x 9 with different themes for each 9 (water, links, tree lined, bunker strewn).
I played the water and links 9's and was 8 over my handicap of 16. Serious practice needed but my arm held up ok. Distance was good but my short game is toss up to what it was.
Tried the new Cobra Baffler XL hybrids, out of interest, instead of my normal 3 and 4 irons and was quite impressed to be fair. The problem was the idiot using them!

Nah, nor will Garcia unfortunately.

Heard they've made the pins more attackable for this evening to give a chance for some low scores. Lowry has a nice cushion, if he goes round in 1 under you'd have to think it's his.

Dustin Johnson running Lowry close but the former does choke when in contention.

This thing with Johnson on the 5th is a bit of a mess! I reckon they think he touched the ball as he certainly didn't ground his putter.
