With the British Open finally underway at St Andrews, 19th hole reveal five things we can expect to see at this year’s major.
SOMEBODY is going to go really low on Thursday morning and almost certainly win the whole thing. Just as five years ago at St Andrews, the draw is likely to play a massive part in this year’s Open. Then, you may recall, Rory McIlroy blitzed the Old Course on Thursday morning with a 63 but got caught out in the high winds of the following afternoon and carded an 80. Louis Oosthuizen managed to get out early on the Friday to slip clear of the field. This year (disclaimer: weather forecasters aren’t always right) much the best of Thursday’s weather looks to be in the morning, with Friday afternoon being calmer than the morning. So an early-late start is what’s required. That is good news for Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Oosthuizen and indeed Tiger Woods, among others. It’s bad news for Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler.
