The Open Championship 2013

As the greatest golf tournament gets under way, its certainly looks like being a hot one, so I therefore don’t expect it to be extremely windy or raining but with this very hot weather we’ve been having lately the fairways are going to be extra bouncy therefore making the golf ball travel further but also bringing in those dreaded pot bunkers into play…

 

The Open was last held at Muirfield back in 2002 with Ernie Els coming out as Champion, but it was notable the collapse of Thomas Bjorn who held the lead going into the final few holes only to come unstuck at The Par 3 16th hole by leaving his bunker shot right back where it started….

 

But my most memorable Open at Muirfield was back in 1987, It was a titanic battle on the last day between Paul Azinger and our own Sir Nick Faldo, Sir Nick managed to par everyone of the 18 holes in the final round to pip Azinger by one and win his first of 6 major titles…

 

So lets hope this Open is just as dramatic with one of my 3 picks below coming out as Champion:-

 

1. Ernie Els

2. Justin Rose

3. Thomas Bjorn

 

Look out for my day 1 summary on Friday…

 

Enjoy The 2013 Open

 

Happy Golfing
