Title: The Open 2017
Post by: Boycey on July 17, 2017, 01:45:09 PM
Almost upon us again, it's definitely one of my favourite sporting events every year.

It's one of the most open Opens  :D I can remember with most bookies going 14/1 the field... I haven't really studied the betting yet but will have a few speculations. I'm not sure what the forecast is but if it's calm I might chance Rory, he's in a similar vein of form as he was the last time he won it when I'd a decent few quid on him at 20s!

Was thinking McIlroy, he hit 3 under on the front 9 on Friday, which shows hes not far of. Think I seen him at 16 this morning. Got Harrington at 50/1. Discount Saturday there and he's in great form.

I think it's too soon for him. The USPGA is made for him though as can be seen by the very low odds on him. He hasn't got his game going yet as he hasn't played enough competitions and he definitely needs to hang on for a few weekends before I'd be punting him.

Harrington bound to be worth a sneaky bet his form is OK and it's a course that suits him! Sergio I think won't do much more having won the Masters although DJ and Spieth are sure to be there or thereabouts as well.

Looking forward to it as well I'm sick of losing money on golf I might just leave the gambling this time!

Will be there on Saturday and Sunday, and find that the one player I really hope is there is Harrington - have resigned myself to the very real risk that Rory won't even make the cut.

Weather looking a bit showery for those days - a bit far out I know but not looking great for spectators  :(

Ah no. Let's have it anyway. I'll put the argument for the opposing view. It's another (OK, tiny) example of the cultural imperialism that makes a security guard at Manchester Airport feel free to abuse Irish people on the assumption that the British way of doing things is right by default and the Irish one wrong for the same reason. Even though the truth is the opposite. 

Only, in that case, Seanie's wife not being a forelock-tugging peasant who would stand for such shite, the casual assumption of superiority wasn't facilitated by the responding cultural cringe that compels some Irish people to refer to the Irish army, for instance, when they mean the army - our army. Or the mainland, when they mean Great Britain. Or even to think the term 'Great Britian' means that the UK state is great.

There - whooda thunk the name of a golf tournament was related to the behaviour of a security man? Everything's connected.

Boylesports have coupons for 'The Open Championship' Sky certainly think that's what it's called, even the US PGA App agrees..

Rory probably calls it the British Open though?

Sky's live show in the afternoons was brilliant yesterday, John Rahm playing out of green side bunker with a 4 iron and Padraig being Padraig.. fantastic entertainment..

I don't think it is being anti-british to suggest that the Open should be called the British Open. This clearly distinguishes it from the US Open.

Yes, when the British Open was first played, there was only one Open. But times change. Stadium names change. Even the name for the Lions has changed.

Not really a fan but you have to hand it to him for sticking with it. He needs a good round this morning and then he'd be right back in it. The reason people always give him a chance despite his poor form is that he's devastatingly good when on song and they know it will turn at some point. Maybe this is the point.

It's a serious blowy day, if these guys are supposed to have the best of it it's gonna be tough in the afternoon..

Please please please God reserve the worst weather for Spieth.

+1

Fingers crossed the back 9 goes well for Rory and I get to see him play tomorrow and not at the crack of dawn.

Might be a bad teetime today then for Harrington to make up enough ground to make the cut, if the weather's going to get worse.

Some shot from Koepka there. . . is it just me or is this not far better stuff than the US Open?!
Title: Re: The Open 2017
Post by: Gabriel_Hurl on July 21, 2017, 04:01:43 PM
I'm glad I backed Koepka at 50/1 for this when he was on the 14th hole at the US Open  :D

Oh!

Lots of good stories out there. Spieth playing well, Koepka backing himself up, Poulter has to be delighted having qualified to get in, Rory back in touching distance with a solid display today.

Why is Clark laying around on the grass? Is he not playing?

Wheels are off a bit for young Rors, dropped back to -1 8 off the lead and not much of a route back from there, he had been back up to -4 earlier

He's very young if he can maintain that consistency he could become an all time great!

I hope he keeps it going tomorrow to banish the demons of Augusta!

If the wind does blow tomorrow it could be brilliant! Another day like Friday would be superb watching for a final round hopefully with Spieth dropping a few and making it interesting for everyone else!

Can't see anyone else involved outside of the final pairing, maybe Koepka if he goes very low
