While You Were Sleeping: What You Missed Sunday Morning at the Open
Sunday morning at the British Open began slowly. Though the tournament seems to reside in the fate of just two men, there were 79 others still finishing their events. While you were sleeping and before the Mickelson-Stenson showdown took center stage, this is everything that happened.
JORDAN SPIETH SHOT UNDER PAR
For the first time since his first round at this year’s Masters, Spieth played a major round under par. The 22-year-old made an eagle on the par-5 4th hole and added three birdies on the back for a final round 68. He’ll find the PGA Championship is not far away.
NO BABY STROLLER NEEDED
Water has made trudging around the course quite difficult at times. Imagine rolling a baby stroller. One pair took that out of the equation, packing their baby in a duffle bag. Seems more efficient, no?
MONTY FINISHED FIRST
For the second time this week, Colin Montgomerie was the leader in the clubhouse. After he led off all of the Saturday rounds, Monty led the fourth off on Sunday and was briefly the leader in the clubhouse again. He shot five over on Sunday and moved up a few spots on the leaderboard.
PHIL IS WEARING THE CLIP AGAIN
Paired with leader Henrik Stenson, Lefty’s lid is held tight again by a binder clip. Chances are you’ll see it on TV all day, and if it does its job, his hat won’t go anywhere.
WEATHER REMAINS THE SAME
The conditions at Royal Troon remain much the same Sunday as they were Saturday, though the sun is peaking out a bit more. Significant wind off the Firth of Clyde is expected to make things interesting all day, but rain is not expected until late tonight.
