The Open 2019 – Day 2

Day Two at the Open was filled with some great action. Of the many topics, Rory McIlroy’s race to make the cut was one of the biggest. What a Cinderella story that would have been. However, he is watching this weekend along with many other great players; that is the way of a Major. But fear not, there are many great players creeping their way to the top and Moving Day will be very interesting.

In case you missed most of the action, like myself, here is a recap:

Of the group at the top, I am particularly interested to see how Lee Westwood does on Saturday. This would be a story for the ages if he can continue is strong play and vie for the Claret Jug on Sunday. Imagine if he holds on to win!

I also like the number of young guns making their mark at The Open. Many have demonstrated sparks of greatness, but to be in the running for this championship is great for golf. Many of the aging veterans (Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods) and young stars (Bryson Dechambeau, Rory McIlroy) who did not make the cut have to understand that the face of golf has changed and on any given day, anyone can win.

Moving Day will be great to watch. I think a tournament can be lost on Saturday, but not necessarily won. You seem to think the same way:

I am looking forward to all the action from Royal Portrush on Moving Day. As always, nothing beats the pressure and stellar play at a Major.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. We are golfing together on August 11 in Mattawa. No doubt, I will be “grateful “for the round that we are playing together. Looking forward to it!
