Golf Australia Express : July 2014
the preview S TAND up those who don't love The Open Championship. (Now kindly move to the door — the real golf fans are talking.) This month's major at the supremely tight yet likeable Royal Liverpool Golf Club is shaping up to be one of the heavyweight golf events of the decade. Tiger Woods is back to contest for a fourth Claret Jug at the site of his emotional third Open victory in '06. But this time around, he'll have some serious company, with world No.1 Adam Scott eyeing that elusive jug through pin-seeking crosshairs. Then there's an all-conquering German named Martin Kaymer, fresh off a dominating US Open win. World No.2 Henrik Stenson must be a genuine favourite, too. The Swede finished T2 at Muirfield last year and has a game made for Royal Liverpool's layout. Then there's the outsiders like Rickie Fowler who's showing good form. His backers will remind you of his T5 finish at Sandwich in 2011. Or Miguel Ángel Jimenéz who'll be smokin' them down the fairway if his season's form is any sort of guide. The Open is real golf. For real golfers. Get the saliine ready folks; we're in for some late night viewing.
