Busy Day In Golf Final Round Open Comment Thread

Mickelson tries to catch Stenson in the Scottish Open.

Geezer Michael Allen tries to hold off Perry and Funk the U.S. Senior Open.

Daniel Summerhays leads the John Deere Classic.

Hee Young Park leads the LPGA Manulife Financial Classic with Inbee trailing by 7.

I'll be stopping in at Muirfield for a look around and then making sure that North Berwick is as good as I remember it. Ta-ta!

Geoff, one word at North Berwick: Perfection!
07.14.2013 | Unregistered CommenterPasaplayer
@ Pasaplayer You nailed it! I believe that is #14 at North Berwick - Perfection! What a wonderful course. Now we know why we all love Macdonald and Raynor designed courses. And to think they were considered to have "franchised" their design work by using those glorious green templates over and over. Could spend a summer's worth of Sundays playing that layout.
Phil with an unspeakably stupid three-putt bogey on 18. He's the hardest guy to root for because he so often gags at just the wrong moment. Here's hoping he can wake up in the playoff.

All forgiven, Lefty.

I counted three U.S. players in the Scottish Open Field. I thought there would be more.

Air to Edinburgh: $1200. B&Bs: $500. Pub pies and beer: $400. Watching links golf: Priceless.

Playing links golf: Priceless-er.

PM really got zapped by the announcer- who said a wedge and 2 putts and he would be the Scottish Open Champ---as soon as he (Doogie, it was) said that- I saw a playoff in Phil's future...The second shot in the playoff showed why PM needs to follow his instincts: Bones talked him in to ''the conservative second shot'' in the regulation play- and he missed the green on his 3rd shot---then he almost holes his 3rd in the playoff, from a very difficult lie!

Bones, let the boy play!

I could not recall one shot of Laird's shown, and he almost won the thing.

Glad to see Spieth's sponsor finally got him into some clothes with a half decent fit to them...

Wonder if Zach's chip had a chance of going in had he pulled the flag?

@ DTF - it looks like it would have dropped if the flag wasn't there - it nicked off the stick and hit the right edge and out.

The Kid's pretty good. Seems to be a good thinker too. Who knows what Phil would have tried there.

Hook 'em!

How long before someone comments about the photo of the entire Mickelson family smiling broadly with Phil holding the trophy (I saw it on the Guardian site)?

Go Phil!

''While We're Young'' supporter I-a-wa Zach must not care that the playoff was in OT. He not only did not have his yardage on his shot after his water ball, while he stood around, well out of the way while Spieth hit (Hook 'Em Dos) he did not have his glove on either. Ready golf, indeed. Did not evan start until JS had hit. Darn, you'd think you could LOOK and know, since he ''owns'' this event, according to the See BSers.

Speith (new spelling) did well. He has top 10ed half the cuts he's made. Pretty cool bunker shot to get into the playoff.

Zach can lick his wounds on flight back from the old country next Friday.

Great weekend for American golf. One of America's two active golf legends beats the Europeans in Scotland, an American teenager wins the TOUR event and Kenny Perry blasts the field to smithereens at the US Senior Open. Interesting that Perry warmed up for the Senior Open with a very good week at the Greenbrier.
