Has best shot of British Open already been struck?
Question of the Day
“How old do you feel?”
“I feel 20. … We show a very mature side of us because we’re here working,” Manassero said. “And so probably for that reason, we look a little older.”
“How old does Tiger look?”
“His age,” Manassero said diplomatically.
YEAH, BABY!: The last time the Open was played at Muirfield in 2002, Justin Rose arrived in grand style, behind the wheel of a Jaguar decked out like one of the cars from the “Austin Powers” movies.
“The nose was so long in that Jag, I think … I touched the front wall as I was parking up,” Rose recalled with a laugh.
This time, befitting his status as the reigning U.S. Open champion, the Englishman is being driven to and from the course.
“I think I’ll be a little bit more under the radar,” Rose said.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME: The tournament doesn’t start until Thursday, yet the most entertaining shot at the British Open may already have been hit.
It belonged to short-game wizard Phil Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open last Sunday and arrived at the 17th green during a practice round to find his ball nestled in light rough halfway up a small knob alongside the putting surface. The left-hander grabbed a wedge and with his back to the flag, feathered a shot that arched softly and landed behind him and rolled to within a few feet of the pin.
It was captured on video by golf blogger Geoff Shackelford (see it here: http://bit.ly/1aIRehR ). Scott Piercy, one of Mickelson’s playing partners during Monday’s round, tried replicating the shot without success.
“I haven’t hit it in so long, I just looked at it and thought I’d give it a try. I didn’t know anybody was filming,” Mickelson said.
“Hopefully,” he added a moment later, “I won’t have to hit that shot this week.”
