Just so we can be no doubt what year or day it is should random threads from yesteryear start re-appearing....

Looking forward to this, but no idea what to expect.  Nice moment for Dazza to start.

Good luck, all.

Fair play to Rory, digging in very well.

Yeah, this is pretty good, were always going to see plenty of birdies but it's still a good test.  Forecast suggests Saturday might be the day they tear it up and might see some really low rounds, but Sunday should be challenging, and thats exactly the way you'd want it I reckon.

the wind has changed many times already , some tough conditions to play any course.

Rivals Turnberry for the most easy on the eye of the Open courses. Not sure if they've ruled it a cert to play it regularly but I hope they do, once a decade at a minimum. Any reason they can't use Royal County Down in the future?

Agreed sewter - lots of big names out of it, but many at the top too. It looks a fantastic place and probably the best test of the majors this year.
Report SontaranStratagem July 18, 2019 3:53 PM BST
There was a time when Spieth was starting to have the tiger effect on the market when he made moves, he'd have been 4 or 5 after that start a couple of years ago

Now he's still available at 17, I never really rated his game, it was built on grinding it out, that's not sustainable long term
