The 2016 Open Championship — Recap

What a finish!  Stenson and Mickelson exchanged birdies all day and when the dust settled, Phil shot 65 and lost.  Tough pill to swallow but there’s not much you can do when a guys drops a 63 on Sunday.  Kudos to Henrik.  Well-earned and well-deserved victory.  For Phil, another hard-fought and disappointing second place. The tournament as a whole provided some surprise and some disappointment.  Confidence plagued, high ball hitter… Read More »

The 2016 Open Championship — Round 1

As usual, the Open Championship is wide open.  Unlike our national championship, links golf, weather and the R&A setup incorporate a lot of randomness into the mix.  This means there are more than just a handful of names in play when it comes time to pick a winner.  Accordingly, I am avoiding the prop bets this year — too much variance and not enough value so there is no reason… Read More »
