I finally figured out how to see The Open on my streaming-only TV here in Louisville. Today is/was the final day, and I got real focused on finding a way. There’s always a a way, and in this case it didn’t even involve a fee.
Once found, the final 4-5 holes were great to watch. I was rooting for Rory, and Cam Smith isn’t my favorite player, but Smith was superb today – he deserved the win. Poor Rory couldn’t make a putt. Smith was assassin-cold, made all the putts. That’s golf in a nutshell – drive for show, putt for dough.
I was there seven years ago, 2015, at the previous Open championship at St. Andrews. It is a magical experience for anyone who loves golf. Watching today brought back great memories. On that day I played Carnoustie in the morning and then took a cab over to St. Andrews to watch The Open’s final round. Epic day. Best golf day ever, even better than my 2001 hole-in-one.
