2021 Open Championship

July 14, 2021

Back to Royal St. George’s for another playing of the British Open (they love it when you call it that). In 2020, Augusta pushed hard to get us a Masters in November; the US Open was a shell of its former self; and the PGA Championship saw a great field with no fans at Harding Park. Meanwhile, these pricks at the R&A were annoying enough not to put on a competition last year. As a result, this has taken the place of the PGA Championship as “red-headed step child of the majors” in my book. Nonetheless, when we made this blog, we made certain commitments, and making horrible predictions was one of them. Here they are.
