Golf Australia Express : July 2013 - THE OPEN
OPENING UP ED’S WELCOME EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Damian Shutie email@example.com EDITORIAL TEAM Mark Allen Adrian Ballantyne Will Hone Damian Shutie INSTRUCTIONAL EDITOR Mark Allen CONTACT US EDITORIAL - firstname.lastname@example.org ADVERTISING - email@example.com OTG Mag is produced and published by OTG Media Pty.

Quite of few of those iconic names of yesteryear have been chirping a fair bit in the lead up to this month's Open Championship. And it seems a common topic keeps arising. Muirfield. Home to the The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers—the self- imposed custodians of the game—Muirfield proves to be a favourite venue on the Open rota among those who've teed it up there. (Check out our list of things you didn't know about Muirfield inside this issue.) It seems amazing that it's already been 11 years since the course last hosted an Open. It was 2002 when we witnessed South Africa's Ernie Els win his first Claret Jug there. And as the poetry of the Open would have it, Els returns to the scene as the defender of the jug this time around, having snuck past Adam Scott last year to claim an unlikely second Open title at Royal Lytham. Speaking of Scotty, you won't be surprised to find out we take another look back at last year's Open collapse and discuss whether redemption is on the cards for the popular Australian this month. Thankfully, Scott enters the immortal-making tournament a different beast this time around, having shaken the major monkey off his back at The Masters in April. We look at five key changes Scotty will need to remedy in his game if he is to find Open redemption at Muirfield. Of course, Australia isn't the only nation dwelling Open Championship losses. This month marks the 21st year since an English player saluted at the event—Sir Nick Faldo back in 1992. That drought could end this month with four Poms whetting their lips at the prospect. (Check out the feature inside.) My word I love The Open. No other tournament has a history quite like it—there's little wonder why it's such a favourite among Australians. That's why we've dedicated this entire issue to the year's third major. It's got everything you probably don't need to know about it inside. And some things you do. Most of all enjoy watching The Open. Nothing like being bleary-eyed for a week in July, is there? See you on the green.
