Golf Australia Express : July 2014
OPEN RETURN TO PORTRUSH SPEAKING of Ireland, or rather Northern Ireland, the Open Championship will return there for the first time in more than 60 years. The R&A announced the major will be staged at Royal Portrush sometime around 2019. R&A chief executive Peter Dawson wouldn't put on an exact date on the event, which will mark the first time it has visited Northern Ireland since Max Faulkner won at Royal Portrush in 1951. "It has been more than 60 years since the Open was played here, and it's been too long," Dawson said. "We're very excited to be coming back." Around The Traps RYDER CUP ON THE MONEY HERE'S a souvenir that's worth exactly as much as the paper it's printed on. The Brits are minting a special edition Ryder Cup five-pound bank note to mark the event between the US and Europe at Gleneagles in September. The special edition note will be able to be used as normal currency anywhere in the UK and can be bought if you've got a ticket to the Cup. The design features a transparent window in the shape of the Ryder Cup, as well as the Gleneagles course and clubhouse. WOMEN’S OPEN NO CHILD’S PLAY THERE was to be no weekend fairytale for a certain 11-year- old at the US Women's Open. But Lucy Li will have plenty of chances to push for major accolades in the years to come, despite a disappointing first outing against the world's best players. Li finished with a pair of 78s and was 22 shots behind halfway leader Michelle Wie. But her caddie Bryan Bush said she'd take plenty from the experience. "She was here for the experience and the opportunity to play with the best players in the world. She proved that she can," Bush said.
