Interesting to see R&A Chief Martin Slumbers issue a statement a day after suggesting a no-deal Brexit could lead to headaches for the first Open in Northern Ireland since 1951.

Serious gunpoint style quotes here. All for…just answering a question. Or was this at issue? Pallets!

"There is no doubt in my mind that it is going be an historic occasion," said Slumbers of the 18-21 July event.

"We are determined to deliver an outstanding Championship at Royal Portrush and stage the biggest ever sporting event ever to be held on the island of Ireland.

"It is a privilege to be bringing The Open back to Royal Portrush for the first time since 1951 and we are all looking forward to it very much.

"We are working with our partners and the local agencies in Northern Ireland to stage a fantastic Championship of which everyone will be proud."
