British Open Championship
Outside of experiencing the Open Championship, it is always nice to wake up early on Sunday morning to watch the end of the worlds oldest major. Who could ask for a more exciting finish.Phil Mickelson being in the hunt only added to my enjoyment. Three Birdies and an Eagle on the front nine, I was starting to have hope for the All American family man to bring it home.
Alas, the dreaded short game, it is my nemesis too.Hats off to Darren Clarke the “oldest” man at the ripe age of 42 to win the Open since the 1960’s. He has overcome much to stand and kiss the silver trophy, most significantly the death of his wife Heather from breast cancer. I am certain Phil would trade every trophy and green jacket to ensure his wife’s continued health. So I will raise a Guinness to you Darren Clarke congratulations and thanks for making us “old” guys look good.
