Hello From Portrush

Max and I landed this morning in Belfast and got a quick 9 in at The Malone course which was great.

The power of Google was on display as we landed, I searched golf courses near Belfast, found and ranked the top ones, pressed directions and off we went.

After 9, a beer, some fish and chips and Max’s Red Bull and Vodka, we headed back to the airport to grab our friends landing later and headed off to Portrush – where the Open is being held.

What a joy it must be to be 20, able to drink a Red Bull and fall asleep on my shoulder in a loud, crowded car.

Here is the view from Portrush on a beautiful evening before the Open…

Tomorrow we plan on following as many golfers as we can. Rory is the local favorite, but I think Koepke with his local caddie has the edge and game to win.
