    Not sure I prefer it but it doesn’t make the viewing experience any worse either. F1 is the same, the crowd makes no difference when watching on tv.
    Not sure why they cancelled the open this year when the other 3 majors are going ahead without fans.

    Dunno of anyone is watching the UK Championship just now but keep your eye out for Martin Kaymer's caddie. He is a big Tim and his yardage book has a Celtic cover on it :ynwacelti just spotted it there on the 5th tee

    Unbelievable drama tonight in the golf. Sensational theatre.. you’d hardly believe it if you saw it in a movie. Rahm finishes up on -4.. Dustin goes into the fairway bunker on 17 on -3 and Rahm goes 1/50 in running.

    Dustin escapes with a par on 17 before another wayward drive sees him in the rough on 18. Plays a good shot from the rough but it keeps running to leave him a 5% chance at best at bringing it to a play off. What does he do? Plays it to the edge of the ridge, ball nearly stops dead 10ft short of the hole and then the hill carries it right into the hole. Scenes.

    Play off hole, Rahm goes first and puts it into the right hand side rough. Dustin puts his way left, pings off a tree and bounces right into the middle of the fairway. He leaves a lengthy but hole-able putt for birdie. Rahm from the rough gets it on the green but he’s about twice as far away as the putt Dustin needed to force the play off. No chance. Rahm is praying to leave it within 5 foot of the hole and hoping Dustin misses his. He holes it!! Unbelievable. Dustin misses his putt to force another hole.

    Cracking Sunday night sport.. first time the world number 1 and 2 have been in a play off together since 1995.

    I see there has been a littlie bit of a debate about crowds or no crowds.

    Would you guys prefer crowds at the next Ryder cup next year, even although it's in the US given what we know they are like?

    Not liking the new scoring system, but have backed McIlroy and Schauffele on both with and without strokes.

    Got Nojgaard and Luiten for Euro.
