    Fairways still got a tinge of green

    Not sure if anyone from the main land is planning a trip over or if anyone is interested just putting it out there.
    Should be able to rent that (perhaps to a pro) for good money.

    Speaking to a member of ours tonight who works down there, said they have been watering the fairways but won't be from now onwards, course is now closed to play til it begins.

    Saw a clip on Scotland Tonight last night, it is indeed pretty green, they must have been hammering on the water cos every other links north of Dundee looks like a desert this year.

    Frazzled courses don't make for a great tele visual experience...

    Yep, they can turn up the green to disguise it but it just don't look right...
    Augusta is a popular view, for the unconverted, because it's generally easy on the eye...

    We've had hardly any rain in the last month or so - met office forecast seems to indicate it will stay that way for the next week or so.

    80/1 with 10 places is my lump next week on Westwood.
    Would have been on molinari but they value has gone on him due to his recent form.
    My own H4H. Challenge. Get to 16 or pop £20in the pot.

    Plenty of guys with a chance.

    Agree about Fleetwood and Rose surely the most capable of the home players.

    Would be surprised if Rory, Tiger, Phil were involved at the business end. Likewise John Ram, Day & Matsuyama.

    Of the big American's - Reed and Spieth for me. Not a great DJ fan - but this could suit him. Plenty of his major 2nd places have come at firm and fast conditions. Justin Thomas has been very quiet since getting to no. 1 early in the season. Could feature, but don't fancy him.

    Possibly Garcia has a chance as well. Russell Knox as well.

    Would also like to see a bit of breeze and looks likely that we will have firm and fast conditions. Just hope the conditions are even for the whole field and we don't end up with one side of the draw being taken out of the event completely.
