Zach is the 2015 winner of the British Open.  He receives the Champion of the Year award.  The Claret Jug.  At what many call the home of golf, St. Andrews, players complete 4 rounds of competition and then 4 holes of playoff to decide the champion.

Who thought that Zach was the one before Monday’s round began.  He was definitely in the mix but the talk was Jordan.  Or the amateur leading the tournament after 3 rounds.  Some rooted for Jason Day.  Many focused on what we wanted to see.  3rd leg of the grand slam? Amateur winning the Open tournament or the dramatic come back from the collapse at the US Open.

But this years Open at St. Andrews was a wedge competition.  Long holes were about managing par.  Shorter holes with wedges in to the green was about making birdies.  Lots of birdies especially in the front 9.  The back 9, especially from holes 11 to 17 was a test for everyone not to make bogey.

This year’s major championship tournaments are definitely exciting to watch.  Golf can be exciting without Tiger.

Jordan could not complete the 3rd leg of the Grand Slam but Titleist Pro V1 golf balls, AP2 irons and Vokey wedges are still in the hunt.  Would Titleist golf equipment complete the Grand Slam?  (The golf balls have a higher probability since it is played by more players.)
