Something tells me that the live TV coverage on NBC is due to Alex Salmond buying it somehow, in some sort of attempt to further his pro-Independence agenda. Kind of would like to boycott it due to that, but who am I kidding, it is a great course, Phil's playing,and it is on in the AM, which I always like. Who cares what I watch anyway ?

Brian,
I think it's as simple as Aberdeen Asset wanting more exposure in the USA and NBC wanting to put more sports from Europe on their network during a summer weekend morning ala Wimbledon.

hey, hey... an instant 5th major!

The Wimbledon thought is a solid one, and I think you are ''spot on'', as want the GC's to say since Faldo showed up and said it.

They all trundle off with Sir Nick, they do.

This looks like a magic place. I hope I can do a bit of golfing thru the lands of Chico, and to boot, I have a friend in England right now for some air show where a Bomber, late of a 007 movie will fly, perhaps for the last time, if more fun funding cannot be aquired. Jolly good show. Pip, pip.

I guess this means The Open isn't an official European Tour event if this is the first European event broadcast live on US TV.

Because of a couple of youngsters running around, golf in the morning on tv and on the weekends doesn't happen except during "the open", but I will try to get to the tv first. Want to see this course.
