    The Open Golf Championship - Muirfield

    Never mind about the Ashes this Thursday, the more prestigious Open Golf Championship is about to commence at Muirfield, 20 miles NE of Edinburgh, on the same day.

    Phil Mickelson picked up the Scottish Trophy at Inverness on Sunday and looks to be in good form. Be nice to see a new face win it, who do you fancy?




    I've played worse

    I predict Mcilroy will not make the cut , he didn't make the Irish open cut and it's all down hill for him now , Tiger is back ,

    I don't really care who wins, as long as I can hear the dulcet tones of Peter Alliss.
    I'll be watching it via BBC and hopefully, Peter is not yet, fully retired.

    As a former winner John Daly gets to play, right? Love to see him pull out a win.

    ^It's been five years since Tiger has won a major. I do not rate his chances of a victory at Muirfield very good since he is just coming off a hiatus due to an elbow injury. This is anybody's championship.

    I think Daly is out, unfortunately. Has to undergo surgery on his elbow.

    I have been happy about every Open Championship result. Its about the man and the course. Waving the flag is for afficianados of the Ryder Cup - arguably the stupidist golf event ever.

    Once Woods gets in the rough his elbow injury will act up again. Tennis elbow doesn't go away that quickly.

    Probably a wide open field this year as they expect warm weather and possibly the best playing conditions in history.

    I hope Mickelson fucks up again, he's a pompous arse.

    ^ Hope GMac makes it but also Ernie Els has been playing quite well lately and he won there before.

    If I'm not mistaken none of tiger's three wins came on this course.

    You think so..... after his behaviour towards Rose during the final stages of the Ryder Cup last year?

    His reputation is of someone who is anything but......

    Still don't want a Septic to win though....

    There's been a lot of hoo ha about the choice of venue. A lot of people very unhappy a men only club has been chosen to host a tournament as prestigious as this.

    Suffice to say he knows how to play to the camera, not unlike Monty, who's also a titanic arsehole.

    Gary Player is the only male golfer in the 2013 ESPN Body Issue. Not bad for a 77 year old.

    Would love to see Westwood or Donald win. If it isn't blowing a gale on the east coast of Scotland then maybe, just maybe.
