WE have been holidaying for the past couple of weeks and as a result we missed the Open Championship. Such is the case when you're on the west coast and everything is done and dusted before breakfast time! That said, I did manage to catch the final round of the Sr. British Open at Royal Porthcawl in Wales this past weekend.
What a test! It was cold and windy with horizontal rain at times! I saw more creativity on display in a single round then you would see in an entire season on the PGA Tour! The game is quite a bit different when you take away the advantage of the 300+ yard drive and the resultant bomb and gouge mentality! Far more entertaining for the true fan of golf I would say and appropriately enough only two players were under par; the winner, Bernhard Langer and the runner up, Corey Pavin. They didn't even have to trick the course out to get that result.
