    Have fun partying all you Irishmen! I don’t even play golf but that was worth watching.

    Truly inspirational play, situation, outcome:):):)

    One of the best Opens I have ever watched. Shane Lowry is an Irish hero tonight no doubt! The little town he lived in South of there (I think) had over three hundred people in the local pub watching the game, and rooting for Lowry. Golfers lined up congratulating him and his family. Golf is a great sport, to play or watch. I have in general found golfers to be a decent lot all around. The spectator rush at the end was just cool.

    I’m a Major tourney fan and I watch as much as I can of all of them except the PGA, which has never seemed that “Major” to me. I put The Open on my calendar at least a month ago, then had two issues: the first two rounds were on Golf TV which I don’t get at my cottage and my 94 year old FIL is up here. 23E74B7D-09D5-4849-BCC2-85103467CF89.jpeg

    He’s a good guy and loves it here, even pets our dog who adores him because of his reticence. But he shares a horrible affliction with my wife: they watch every single Detroit Tigers game from start to finish. Now I’m a Tigers fan but this season after 100-odd games I’m a bit rung out.

    So I DVRED the Open the final two days and on Sunday I went fishing when the Tigers came on. F41084CE-2ED6-4399-8B09-8D6DBFF67264.jpeg
    I came back just in time to see the 9th inning where the Tigers finally won a game, mixed drinks, cooked up broiled whitefish (FIL favorite), fried walleye etc etc, poured wine, poured bonded bourbon for myself, poured more bourbon for myself then watched the final round. A simply great round of golf by Lowry and worth every ounce of effort, and bourbon!

    A fine day you had sir, and a great way to end it. Shane was a true champion, showed a lot of grit, and class at the same time. No one plays a perfect round of golf under those conditions, but he did as well as any of the greats before him. I think his whole life will change now and for the better.

    I thought you were talking about the epic Wimbledon Men's Final.
