A storm is brewing at Muirfield.
From London to Sochi to Rio de Janeiro, the deadly bomb attacks on the Boston Marathon raised new concerns Tuesday over safety at major sports events around the world, including the Olympics and World Cup.
The British capital has long been a top target for terrorists, and these concerns have only intensified after harrowing scenes from the Boston Marathon on Monday, where bombs killed three people and injured more than 170.
The British government warned Syria's Olympic leader on Wednesday that he could be banned from attending the London Games because of his close ties with President Bashar Assad.
People still hoping to get tickets for the London Olympics won't get another shot at buying them until April.
Britain's government demanded Wednesday that the English Football Association implement wide-ranging governance changes, including curbs on debt and stricter checks on foreign owners.
"I would really encourage the R&A, when they next come to allocate the Open, to look at this, simply because of the message that it sends out," Robertson said in Sunday's Daily Telegraph. "It just looks very, very out of touch and old fashioned in the post-Olympic era."
"We won't be cowered by this sort of behavior," said British Sports Minister Hugh Robertson, who hailed the country's security forces as "the best anywhere in the world."
