The Open Championship

By far my favorite of the four majors. On the bucket list to attend on someday. Royal Birkdale is the venue this year.

I hope it's windy and a bit rainy. Open's are better that way.. Tough scoring. No 64's..

What are we at the park for except to win? I'd trip my mother. I'd help her up, brush her off, tell her I'm sorry. But mother don't make it to third -- Leo Durocher

Conditions look pretty good today. Seems like the scores are pretty good also.

If Phil was not interested in his input anymore or was not trusting it, then ... yeah ... he's going to miss him. Must have been a substantial rift to end a 25-year working relationship.

I doubt there was a rift at all. Bones isn't even caddying anymore and i heard Phil might play less than he had been. Just all rumors. No team lasts forever..

Dude, maybe when we are old, old man, as a bucket trip we'll go together. Maybe we'll take MitchRapp with us.

The most recent year that Tiger Woods won this event-I think it was 2008-I took my mom back to France and England where she had served in the employ of the United States Army Civil Service during World War II. It was just a few years after my dear dad, who met my mom when he was also serving in the Armed Forces, had passed.

The Sunday of the final round, which was at Royal Liverpool, we all went to Heathrow to pick up the woman who is now my wife, having come back from Paris the day before. The final round-it was ending and we listened to it on the radio as we were driving from London to Scotland.
