The leaders exploited the benigh conditions for their groups pre cut but the tournament was won with Lowry's birdie fest late Saturday. With 5 to go, we are where we were at the start of today. 4 in it. Lowry just has to play to the economics surely. Have we been here before??

Tommy is another like Westwood who plays well tee to green (usually) but can't putt for dough when pressure applied in the biggies ... I hope he wins at least 1 major but better players than him haven't ... top opportunities only come around a few times in your career ... this was one of them
Perhaps Lowry was destined to win this week but Fleetwood had opportunities early doors to close the gap but couldn't do so

Report Vubiant July 22, 2019 11:02 AM BST
Of course the  tournament has to be judged on the whole 72 holes and Shane  unquestionably played the best golf most consistently . Looking at how the last round unfolded however, I think Tommy's miss on the first was the pivotal moment . If he had halved Shane's lead in one fell swoop -the psychological effect on both players would have been massive. It was like  Rory's miss for an eagle at the 2nd against Patrick Reed in the 2018 Masters which would have wiped out Reed's lead . In both cases a shot gained felt like a shot lost and vice versa.

The most boring weekend of a major ever, anticlimactic to say the least

The media can try and sell it as something it wasn't but it was boring yesterday lets be honest

Its time they started making these courses hard, make them worthy of hosting a major, winning scores of -16 is getting rather tiresome, what happened to +2 being the winning score? where they have to grind and grind and grind just to finish on that total? these guys are being called the "greatest batch ever" its a f***ing joke in my opinion. when the courses are set up that easy its no wonder they are breaking records ffs
Report stephaniebot July 22, 2019 3:35 PM BST
The equipment plays a part in that, to be fair. When average driving distance has gone from 270 yards, to 320 yards, courses just cant keep up. I know it was downhill, but when a 385 yards length hole is driveable by so many...? How long would a Par 5 need to be nowadays to be a genuine 3 stroke hole, to reach the green, with modern equipment?
Do all that, and for the other 51 weeks of the year, your average golfer would find course impossible

Report sewter lives again July 22, 2019 5:18 PM BST
I agree, it was anti climatic, but that wasn't the fault of the course it was down to the complete brilliance of Shane Lowry. He simply handled the conditions considerably better than anyone else.

Lowry also had early/late tee times on first 2 days and that was considered by many to be the more difficult side of the draw

With due respect Sontar, Portrush is one of the best tests of golf ever for an open - the reason for the decent scores was that the wind and rain didn't come until the second half of the final round when it really showed it's teeth. Only four players in the top 15 were under par and none of the top 5 in the final round. With less benign conditions next time, Portrush will be a beast.
Report Total Bosman July 22, 2019 6:09 PM BST
I think that barring extreme conditions (either very high winds or a completely baked out course) the days of over par majors are all but gone.  It's not just the equipment but also the fact that more and more of them are gym rats not just bombing it but hacking it out of any length of rough with relative ease.  Used to be the USGA or whoever could make a course super-long and the rough mega-thick and keep the scores down to par or worse but these days if you do that, you just end up with Brooks Koepka holding your trophy on about 10 under.

I also wonder if climate change is starting to bite a bit, particularly for the US majors.  Firm and fast with rock hard greens is the way to control the scores but it feels like everywhere they turn up to has had about a week of rain in advance, which again plays to the bomb and wedge crowd.
