Well we know what happens when lots of foreigners come over to good ole blighty. The moan about the weather, the food and the beer and the Open can have rich pickings for the cranky golfers out there. Although with the weather set fair and with the English cricket team with their tails up we probably won’t care what people say. But here are a few things good and bad about the British Open shared by our Dan Jenkins and our friends at Golf Digest
Lee Trevino on supping luke warm lager at Muirfield in 1972 said – “No wonder everybody over here’s so wrinkled up.”. Well that won’t happen this year unless they get a powercut, and make sure you ask the barman to reach to the back of the fridge when it is busy !
Jack Newton was asked what he’d do the night before playing off Tom Watson at Carnoustie in 1975: “Get drunk again.” But hopefully 3 years after Muirfield the lager industry had got its act together with the lager.
