Sky are live from the course every afternoon this week, they just gave a not very positive weather forecast with it getting gradually more windy and showery over the weekend..
Big Dazza nailed on again. O'Neill will be lumping on.

Stuck a quid on him in Portstewart. Think he finished last but one. Slowly paying back the 800.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Love to see Harrington go well this week. His new crazy swing seems to be working.

The British Open.

Nope just the Open Championship


I suppose you're one of these Irish people that talks about "The Queen" as well.

To be fair, its the old british empire arrogance thing that means the British Open is called the Open.

Let's not have this discussion.

It's the Open Championship because it's the original open championship in golf. It's entitlement, not a sense of entitlement.

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.

But Boycey's from NI, so by that logic would he not be OK to say the Open?  ;)

Even The Open thread isn't immune to political rubbish.  ::)

I'm appalled that someone could think I'm from NI unless you think Ulster and NI are the same thing  ;D.

If I'd put the thread up any other week I probably would have called it 'The British Open 2017' just to distinguish but I think this week it's obvious what I'm talking about. 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..

Luckily The Queen isn't opening The Open or there would be hell to pay.
