The Open Starts Tomorrow

So the Open at Royal St George's in Sandwich, Kent starts tomorrow and the pressure is rising on Rory McIlroy to get a 2nd Major title. However, no-one has won a 2nd major in a row after winning their first one, since before the war, so past history says the chances are slim! Waiting in the wings for their first major titles are Luke Donald and Lee Westwood, the golf world number 1 and 2, who are both currently on good form. The Open has not been won by an Englishman since Nick Faldo won it in 1992.

Weather reports look a bit bleak with rain predicted over the weekend and possible high winds on Sunday so the course could be quite unpredictable. Which could set the scene for a fascinating battle!
