I'm pretty excited for this one. I love The Open and everything about it. I love watching the early starters go off at 1-2am in the East and the early weekend rounds. This is the first Open at this venue since the 1950s... It is WAY up there on Northern Ireland. The course looks absolutely amazing from my early research. I can't believe it's the last major already in 4 weeks but it is. Let's finish the majors strong!

Portrush has held 4 Irish Opens, the last in 2012. RCB finished 2nd. Winner, Jaime Donaldson was -18. Rafa Cabrera-Bello was 2nd at -14. Rory and Molinari were t-10 at -11. Russell Knox, Rahm, and Rory are last 3 winners of the Irish Open.

I've been a dumpster fire this major season but this is my favorite tourney of the year. Love waking up early to watch it.

Matt Wallace was my first longshot I looked at... Great minds LRink...
I threw in Eddie Pepperell because he got tied 6th last year @ Carnoustie [-5] with a final round low [-5] and Haotong Li got solo 3rd @ Royal Birkdale in 2017 [-6] with a final round low [-7]

lots more "cats & dogs" to still look at esp with the "lead in " Irish and Scottish Opens which have been good "predictors" in the past :shake:

Tiger hasn't played in a month competitively. Should be cold and rainy.. I foresee a fade coming....

Can't wait to see the match ups! Let's have a great week...

The Open has some interesting groupings. I like they spread them out and don't try to do several "super groups".

Reavie -135 vs Bubba: Chez in solid form of late. Weather is predicting showers daily and Bubba isn't a fan of rain. Throw in the fact it's a links course and should be windy also is a negative for Bubba. All signs point towards Reavie in my eyes...

Interesting that Phil fasted and lost weight before this event. Long term I think it's a good thing for him, but not so much for this week... Debating whether or not to fade him.

Beware that if you're a Directv customer you might not get the network feed on Saturday and Sunday. ATT still feuding with Nexstar and NBC has the tournament this year.
Last week I got the Scottish Open on the Golf Channel until the networks took over then I got nothing. Not sure if the 700 channels will have the network feed but you might want to have a backup plan if you plan to watch.

Here's where I am so far on matchups:

Hatton (-120) over P Reed
Scott (+110) vs Fleetwood
Xander (-105) vs Fleetwood
CH3 (-105) vs Fritelli


Feels weird to be fading Fleetwood not only once, but twice, but he hasn't been near as consistent this year as the last couple, plus Scott and Xander have both played well in the first 3 majors, in addition to being more consistent throughout the year. CH3 has a pretty terrible Open record, but a first time winner who found out he's even making the trip to N Ireland on Sunday afternoon is an auto-fade for me

Ah, THE Open Championship. I’ve set the alarm to insure me 6 hours sleep.
Many MANY years ago before there was a golf channel, I dropped into a neighbors house for a cup of coffee. I have no idea what year it was; I don’t know why I wasn’t working. But we sat there for hours watching holes not seen in prime time , players famous and not so famous, and No commercials. Hard to believe. We still talk about it. THE Open Championship remains one of my most favorite. Good night all. Please do not call me before 3 a.m.
