4 days of golf starts on Thursday with the main focus being on Rory McIlroy.

If he managed to win the atmosphere would be off the scale.

No sure who I'll bet on, I usually wait till the first two days are played to see who is on form. 

Here is how it works

 

Round One - Token English or unheard of Yank shoots 64 and leads by 2

Round 2- Bigger Fish shoots low- Rory 66, Tiger 66 or something like that- Big Fish misses cut, Blast from Past sneaks in Cut

Round 3- Token English player shoots 63

Round 4- Some Top 6 player wins it

Hope that has helped:P

Isn't there a thread on The British Open already?

I know how angry you chaps get about duplicate threads.

Looking like the weather will be a major factor as the 4 days are predicted to be wet/windy.

A fragile Tiger, IMO, won't be able to hold himself together for 4 rounds, if he gets to Saturday. 

All looking like an outsider could sneak into contention, back to the stats before I place any more bets.

Poor wee Rory, having a nightmare start, just about to go +5 after 3. :blink:

Is that him knocked out ? 

Or does he get more time ?

Ok, after careful consideration here's my bets for the winner of the Open....................

Koepka 6/1

Rose 15/2

Spieth 16/1

My earlier choice, Molinari, is 7 shots off the lead.

Spare a thought for Rory, shot a magnificent 65 yesterday, missing the cut bu one shot.

Unlucky wee man. :lol:

The home crowd have a new hero, Lowry, currently ripping it up at -9.

I could make up I'm there, even though I'm watching it on TV. :lol:

Lowry had another good day at the office, sitting at -16.

Next best is Holmes, -10 and Koepka -9.

Weathers meant to be wild tomorrow, could well make it closer than it suggests at the minute.

Not sure why when there is another British Open thread. But great round by the Republic of Ireland player..might soon be the whole of Ireland as one country. Isn't it time we gave NI  back?

The top of the leaderboard start heading out between 1:00 - 2:00pm.

I'm predicting the winning score will be around -12 as the weather will take it's toll.

Getting slightly interesting, Lowry, 4 ahead of Fleetwood with 6 to play.

Fleetwood ballooned his shot to the 13th over the green, Lowry pops his into a bunker. 

Party all but over, Fleetwood had chances, blew them all, Lowry has held his nerve.

Look out NIreland, there's going to be a party. :cheers
