I Don't like Speith for this either. Just doesn't seem to be on his game this year much.

I've drawn #5 pick in a pool for the Open so realistically DJ, JS, Rory and Day will all have gone by the time it gets to me. I'm looking at Rahm (first open is the downside, maybe), Rose, Stenson - Garcia as an outside bet out of those lads I think. If Stenson can hang for the 4 days he might be my pick. Rose or Rahm wouldn't break my heart either.

Rahm didn't have a great start to his first US Open, surprisingly.

Yeah, tough day for Rahm!

I missed the draft and going off highest ranked player still available I ended up with Jason Day as my pick so I didn't have to fret about who to pick.

Serious day by Rickie.

Rory McIlroy admits he sounds like a broken record as he insists he is close to finding the form....... Currently 4 over after 4  :o

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/golf/2017/07/14/opening-two-days-masters-danger-lost-uk-television-no-deal-place/

Sky lose out on USPGA and the first two days of the Masters it would seem.

I don't necessarily mind things being taken off Sky but you would think the alternative would have been announced before they announced they'd dumped Sky.

Any ideas of where the USPGA is going? A lot of talk about youtube but I wonder would it be some kind of PPV thing? It would definitely throw a spanner in the works for the likes of those on Kodi or streaming online as you'd have to think youtube would be very clued in to stop it being shared.

Interesting times ahead!
