Ross Kinneard

Whats up associates, particularly those that mourn the tip MAIN SEASON FOR MEN! The open event delivered massive, and it was a lot enjoyable to look at the golfers take their social media accounts throughout the pool. Gamers, packs, and followers all the time take it to the following degree through the Majors, and this week was no exception. I might be mendacity if I stated I wasn’t a bit nervous Rory McIlroy Coming quickly, however between Max Homa’s play for consecutive Tigers and Shane Lowry Eagles on Saturday and insane full-back Cam Smith ninth on Sunday, there have been loads of memorable moments from this yr’s Open Championship.

I additionally discover it fascinating that Justin Thomas is the largest males’s massive winner of the yr! Twenty-five is the brand new 35 on tour and I am trying ahead to a 15-year-old successful a significant within the subsequent decade or so.

Let’s take it from the highest.

Spieth Ice Cream, Tiger Glee

To know me to know that I like ice cream. I hold a playlist in my Notes app of each ice cream spot I’ve ever been (properly, since 2016) together with a score and basic scoop notes. So I used to be excited to see Jordan Spieth get pleasure from a cone in golf home final week!

Some issues to notice right here. First, this man undoubtedly goes for ice cream. Maybe the trophy would have been higher suited to this example just because he was enjoying golf, in any case. Happily for Spieth, his agent, Jay Danzi, was there to work as a cone.

It should be good! The closest I get to this degree of luxurious is once I maintain my sister’s ice cream whereas I drive residence. Aside from that, I deliver my very own cones.

Subsequent, we now have Tiger doing one thing regular, which for some motive is all the time enjoyable to see.

Mr. Eldrick Tonette Woods, holding a scorching canine on the flip! Similar to any outdated man on any outdated course, apart from the truth that he is a significant winner 15 instances and this was captured in one of many wildest locations in golf (Adare Manor at JP McManus Professional-Am final week).

jt . tweeted

Justin Thomas hit that sort of high You may see it at your native driving vary on Thursday at The Open. That sort of you Simply Hit it whenever you’re enjoying by means of a bunch till you may have a crowd.

He defined it on Twitter after his tour, however I did not see video proof of that till just a few hours in the past.

View with warning:

So it was solely becoming that his participant, Shane Lowry, mocked Thomas on Friday when he shot a lot better on Day 18 at St Andrews. I might wish to take a second to personally thank Brian Scott for sharing this excellent clip on Twitter. Content material Warning: Contains part.

“You bought quite a bit higher anyway!” Laurie stated. To which Thomas replied, “Shut up.” I like some good, pleasant banter, and I actually like that in a significant event. I additionally love understanding that no three-time main winner is resistant to being ridiculed on the golf course.

Laurie shared the next clip of his Eagles cascading (!) on Saturday, and beautiful JT responded with an on the spot response on his half:

Then Smylie Kaufman bought into it, and now I am tremendous curious to know what occurred on the PGA Nationwide!

Airplane winners!

The next pictures have been shared of Cameron Smith climbing to the airport after successful The Open, which bought me pondering: Are gamers touring like us after successful an occasion that’s the finest sort of golf photoshoot?

No massive deal, simply retailer your claret jug within the high cupboard! We additionally can not neglect the earlier winners who made comparable strikes.

Golfers doing bizarre issues with claret pitchers and inexperienced jackets in tow would not be humorous to me. Whereas the remainder of us attempt to navigate laptops and iPads by means of safety, these guys carry items of historical past with them. I can not assist however surprise how many individuals every winner has been honored by. Both approach, I hope to see extra skilled content material flying commercially sooner or later.

Cameron Smith breaks an extended streak

Historical past all the time makes within the majors, however some Grand Historical past was made on Sunday at The Open. Not solely did Cameron Smith win for him The primary main, he broke the barrier for Cameron all over the world as he turned the primary cam ever to win a significant championship. The primary Open Championship was performed in 1860, so this streak lasted for 162 years earlier than Smith got here alongside. Big information for Cameron on the market!

Hopefully this may now open broad. With Cameron Younger hanging out and lots of different Cameronians lurking (see Triangle, Davis, Champ), it won’t be lengthy earlier than we see one other Cameron take a giant win.

Brooks hits the town

Lacking a wound is rarely enjoyable, however no less than lacking a wound at The Outdated Course means you may have some further time to hang around in St Andrews. And that is precisely what Brooks Koepka and Jena Sims did over the weekend earlier than heading off on their honeymoon. It is not unusual to see the professionals in St Andrews, but it surely’s protected to say that folks have been excited to see the four-time most important champ.

The 2 at the moment are on their honeymoon, so even with the items lacking, it will be good for 2 weeks for Koepka.

Transferring on from The Open (which I’ll miss dearly). I spent just a few days in Tahoe for the American Century Championship per week earlier than the Open, and it was a reminder that even individuals who can spend their time doing no matter they select to play golf. It is all the time enjoyable to see celebrities and athletes take their skills to the monitor and see which of them are simply as nuts as the remainder of us. After I chatted with Nick Jonas, it is protected to say that my center college self was intimidating. To be trustworthy, I used to be in my mid-20s fairly scary, too. I could not consider something to ask of Jonas whereas standing subsequent to him, so I stated the very first thing that got here to thoughts: “How do you want your golf equipment?” greater than nice. Anyway, here is our dialog about issues aside from irons.

I additionally toured Travis Mathew’s actions whereas exploring the course, which implies I checked two objectives: I’ve to apply left-ball workout routines And the Purchase a brand new shirt.

Essentially the most surreal (and my favourite) a part of the American Century Championship to this point was chatting with varied athletes and celebrities about their golf experiences. Extra on that to return this week!

Lastly, I bought to see Miles Teller AKA “The Rooster” hitting his approach round. I see little Matthew Wolf in that movement…

Earlier than we go – speaking concerning the Rooster – I might be remiss to not share this High Gun-inspired video from TaylorMade:
