Well, it's almost upon us. The great and the good are out trying to get used to the baked conditions on the course at Carnoustie. Probably the longest dry spell we've had running up to an Open for many a year. I think this could really be an exciting weeks golf. Good weather and hard fast fairways will put a huge emphasis on the short game. I have no idea who will lift the Claret Jug at the end of the week, but, whoever does will certainly have earned it.

Anyone going up there for a visit ?

Broomieknowe will be running hard and fast after the recent good weather. Shortish course, but, you need to play well to make a score there.

Looking forward to The Open as always, interested to see how the top players deal with Carnoustie in the hard and fast conditions.

These players play to numbers and if those numbers are unpredictable: cause the ground is hard, dodgy bounces,there screwed, to a certain extent. Should be fun watching.

Not an MP year - so not really an Open Championship type launch. Ones we already have doing quite well though. FA3AF3DB-7FFA-424A-9AFC-F2528A0CB81C.jpeg

So Chris Wood has left Mizuno, but still plays Mizuno clubs.

Koepka still on JPX-900 I see.

Paul Casey still on Mizuno.

All set up for a great finish. Not too breezy here on the east coast, so, I don't know where the forecast winds have gone. If it stays like this someone will go low and give themselves a great chance. Looking forward to a full afternoon in front of the tv ☺

This is getting interesting, only one guy on the red at the top of the leaderboard happens to be a guy called Tiger.

Just for a moment I thought Eddie Pepperell had a chance.

Interesting how few club manufacturers are visible now - nearly a Nike catwalk out there.

He had a great week, I had hoped Paul Casey would make a move over the weekend, but, unfortunately .......

Casey certainly had a Mizuno towel draped over his bag on Sunday

Went to the Open on Friday and got thoroughly wet. This didn't dampen spirits as we had a great day. Highlight being stood next to Rory's wife. You should have seen the rock on her finger! Dave enjoyed our knock at Broomieknowe.

I met EP's dad, Pat, on Friday afternoon & he welcomed me into the Pepperarmy with open arms. I walked the course with them for the rest of the week. Great bloke. Pity Eddie couldn't buy a putt on Saturday. Excellent finish though.

I always love coming back home, especially when golf is involved. Montrose is awesome.
