    Default 2018 "British Open" at Carnoustie - Talk and Game.

    The winner of the US Open gets to pick the format of The Open... and Katy Lied won going away... so Katy what kind of game format would you like to proffer?

    Katy must be on Vacation... so we'll move ahead.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I should probably put Jordan Spieth, but I just don't have an affinity for him.

    I thought I was being edgy with Fleetwood... but most everybody's picked him too.

    Doesn't he hold the course record for Carnoustie? I think that may be a factor in his popularity.

    am shocked at how well Finau is doing.

    Also, next tournament Im picking Jazz Janewattananond, just to give me an excuse to say his name.

    Also, Carnoustie is the ugliest course of the year, amirite?

    I think it's super ugly.

    I'm not as shocked as I am pleased. Every time I see his lanky frame I wonder how far he could hit it if he swung hard.

    I'm not shocked either. He has played very well in majors this year. Crazy that he only has one win, and it was at the PR Open. Dude needs to break through Koepka-style.

    I'll be damned... Tiger is co-leader. At least until for a while as the others play behind him and have the opportunity as he did to lower their score.

    Donuthole is the Champion Picker of the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie.

    Thanks to all participants, and if DH chooses to pick the format for the PGA next month... that would be a bonus.

    I kind of like this format, it was easy to admin.

    Ha. Pick 2 players who don’t make the cut and still win the game. I like this format, too!

    You were a 12 foot birdie putt on 18 from Rose from only having Zach Johnson's score count.
