2nd year this will be completely off my radar thanks to those sellouts at the R&A and their disgraceful and utterly short sighted view on growing (and maintaining growth of) the game.

There is a programme on Sky at 1pm U.K. time announcing the tee times on Monday. Could that be the same time?

I agree with you Barragan although I don't think I'd be able to manage not seeing it, I've taken Thursday and Friday off work and will be watching as much as possible.

You can take a nowTV week pass for 11 quid and watch it online, although if you do not care for sky I can appreciate why you wont.

The Open field:
Can't find any listing more concise than this:

https://www.theopen.com/Players

Presentation of pretty graphics on all golf sites seem to be taking over from any notion of merely providing information.


Perhaps this is a touch more digestible:

Obviously they group the big names together, but is the whole thing pieced together or is any of it a draw?

Once the field as specified is complete, they fill any remaining places from the world ranking, so I assume they include those "alternates" under the owgr Top 50 category - see Tony Finau, for instance. Only explanation I can think of.

Thanks Kwini, I think you have nailed it with "Once the field is complete". I thought the exemptions were in order of precedence, so for example Brian Harman - who was 51st on the OWGR would be catered under that category, but he got in under Category 13 (Top 5 Fedex points list on completion 2017 Travelers Championship). Semantics, possibly....

The Top 50 exemption exemption came from Week 21, right after the BMW-PGA and COLONIAL tournaments.

It looks likes the alternates were determined on Week 27, right after the Greenbrier tournament.

Players #51-#53 look to be Webb Simpson, Tony Finau, and Anirban Lahiri

Webb Simpson was the first alternate, must have been only 155 spots exempt.

Finau was the 2nd alternate, got in when Ben Curtis WDed
Lahiri was the 3rd alternate, got in when Piercy WDed.

Lahiri was ranked 90th on week #21, when the Top 50 exemptions were announced. He went up into the 65th after his T2nd at Memorial.

Caught a clip on Sky showing John Rahm playing out of a bunker. Thing was, he was playing a 4 iron. He had knees and waist bent and the club was practically horizontal. Pot type bunker as well. Flopped out nicely.

Think I remember talk about Player or Seve doing the same thing with all the irons in the bag once.

Something like this:

I wonder how BDeC will do with his same-length clubs in pot bunkers.

TBF, pretty much the first thing Rahm said was that he learnt it from Seve.

I like 9.36 (Harrington, Perez & Pieters) and 10.09 (Koepka, Hideki & Fleetwood) in the morning

Really like the Phil, Leishman and Franny in the afternoon.

What has DeChambo ever done to secure a primo group? Puma paying a ton of money to the R&A no doubt.

O'bese O'Meara opening the batting on what must surely be his Open swansong. He'd be more value in the commentary box.

Not sure Grace and Dufner are a primo group. Grace has one PGATour win on his resume (Euro Wins are mostly 2nd tier wins).

Prince Dracula did a summary of theoretical OWGR points earned all time at the Open Championship.

Grace has won around the world, went 5-0 against the Big Tour's best in 2015 and has 4 x Top 5 finishes in the past 9 Majors.
Yeah, right, not a primo player. Compared to who?
Not many with his record over the last three years.

There you go again....putting stock into match play contest. 4 of those wins were with a partner.

None of his EuroTour wins were against "stout" fields. Both Grace and Dufner are ranked outside the Top 30.

And I am sure players like CH-III is obsessing that BAD got to play in a primo grouping.

Incredible how #81 ranked DeChambeau gets singled for a Primo pairing with #30 something ranked Dufner/Grace while #169 ranked player gets a free pass for being paired with #18 Matt Kuchar.

Maybe it is because Ramsay won a US Amateur.... Rolling Eyes

Maybe no one considerers Kucher to be a "primo" player. He's quiet and not flashy so his name just goes under the radar.

That's brilliant news about the PGA, really pleased with that Very Happy

Regarding O'Meara he has confirmed this will be his last Open. He is 60 now - which I believe is the R&A's cut-off - and it's at Birkdale so giving him the honour of the opening tee-shot is the right thing to do.

Im pretty surprised about the PGA going to the BBC, but seems to make sense if they stated they wanted to open it up to a wider audience. The BBC do well with different platforms with things such as Glastonbury so getting some golf on should be manageable. In America are the majors on free to air TV or behind a paywell like the UK?

So will the BBC now get back the full masters coverage as Sky have no deal in place for next year.

You'd hope by now the BBC will not use Peter Alliss anymore and yeah that's a good point about Sky not having the Masters...you'd wonder how they are going to sell a golf channel after potentially losing 2 majors

Hope so. Would be nice to see viewer accessibility/figures take precedence over the mighty $$$, but can't see it tbh. Still, more of a chance than at this time last week I'd say.

Agree wire, it's nice to see O'Meara getting the first tee slot tomorrow. Seemed a nice guy from what I remember of him winning the 2 biggies (it was 2 wasn't it???)

Very surprised that the bbc got the PGA champs. Not sure how much will be on the TV but I assume almost all the action will be available on the bbc sports website or the red button.

It will be interesting to see what figures the bbc get, i would assume that even red button viewing will be similar to Skys viewers. I have tried to get a comparison of the BBc and SKy Masters viewing figures for this year but cannot find anything. But the Open figures for last year compared to the year before, was crazy 1.1 peak for sky 4.5 peak for the bbc. Even whispers on a few reports that the USGA a concerned about figures regarding the US Open. With Cricket bringing some free to air back in the future, maybe sport is realising that it needs the coverage not just the cash.
