Unexpected excitement at The Open Championship 2014

It’s major week, you know that. It’s 32°C here in Germany and I spend the Sunday in front of the TV. I believe you understand that as well.

Rory McIlroy went into the final day with a 6-shot lead. Normally comfort enough to get the trophy home easily. This year Sergio Garcia plays very well at Royal Liverpool, Hoylake too. And also Marc Leishman, Adam Scott and Ricky Fowler play great golf. It’s 4 holes to go at The Open, Rory is still 2 shots ahead of Sergio but the pressure is there – for these both and for me as well: it’s really fun and exciting watching this Open Championship. Great golf ladies and gentlemen!
