    When I first started road racing I felt that it was sometimes a bit sexist,racist and elitist . My mate said ” Yeah,it can be a bit like golf” 😉

    Els is making a dodgy start!

    Interesting to see that Mickleson is not carrying a driver all week – just a strong (v strong ie 12 degrees) 3 wood. Like the olsd 2 woods. And Poulter carries his hybrid 240 plus 30-40 yards run. Who needs a driver when the rough is so penal?

    Some dodgy outfits already which will give fuel for the haters!!!!

    Sneadeker could be an outside shot (my son met him in a fish and chip shop on Monday along with Bo van Pelt. Not exactly a pro sport diet but perhaps they wanted to experience a local delicacy and Scottish fish always tastes better. V nice that pros happy to chat with teenagers!

    Got Garcia and Mickelson in the sweepstake 😀

    But read the other day that The Open truly is that… Of all the majors its average winner’s world ranking is the lowest by someway.

    I’ll dig it out, if anyone is interested.

    How is cycling similar to golf? Who is the cycling equivalent to John Daley?

    Well we’ve got a TdF thread and an Ashes thread. Here’s a thread for the Open

    Now, no doubt the usual Golf haters will be along reeling off the usual stuff (you really need to think how similar cycling is to golf!)

    So, who’s your money on?

    Wish I was there today, I’d be following Faldo, Watson and Couples

    Pigface – are you talking about substance abuse (tick) or strange choices in clothing (tick)? Or just natural talent?

    1 Phil Mickelson -2 +3 +1 -5 -3 F

    2 Henrik Stenson -1 -1 +3 -1 E F

    T3 Lee Westwood +1 -3 -1 +4 +1 F
