SKY have killed golf.

Shoot out between Phil Mickelson and Henrick Stenson for the Open.

Agree about Sky, I've paid it almost no attention this year.

Stenson has played some sensational golf today.

Killed golf? Really?

Sky have had every major tournament and the Ryder cup bar the open for years! How have they killed golf

Anyway, it's been a hell of final round between mickleson and stenson, hope stenson keeps his bottle

The breaks do my head in and with them going to breaks regularly they don't show as many of the lesser known players.

I know they've had all the others for ages but the Open was always a nice break and the BBC used to do it pretty well.

I've been watching a stream with no sound for the last hour. Seems ridiculous that the Open isn't free to view.

Stetson should see this out 2 shot lead on the 18th.

Whilst I do agree the breaks are annoying and yes totally agree that the open on the bbc, free to air is how it should be....to say sky have killed golf is a bit silly

In fact if iirc when it was on the Bbc the coverage didn't start till late in the day, certainly on the first two days, where as sky have had it all

I didn't mean literally

They've just made it difficult for the part time arm chair golfer such as myself.

BBC golf coverage was pretty good imo.

I did similar on the 18th green the other day

2nd shot - A beautiful second into the green (par 4), took a big bounce and ended up at the back of the green on an awkward downhill lie.

3rd shot - Fatted my chip onto the green about 40ft away from the hole

4th shot - decent long putt, knocked it about 6ft past the hole

5th shot - knocked it about 6ft past the hole again

6th shot - knocked it about 6ft past the hole AGAIN

7th shot - left if short

8th shot - Tapped in (5 puts )

I'd played well as well, had a run of 3 birdies in 5 holes (incredible for me) and in completely wrecked my card

I'd be launching clubs at that point. Not sure I've ever five putted. Four putted plenty.

It honestly made me feel dizzy at the total totalling them up. I was only +4 after 11 holes and on my way to break 80.

I ended up +15 +11 for the final 7 holes.

Bottled it, although my excuse was I racing against the fading light to finish and had to rush (jogging inbetween some shots ). A couple of the shots I lost completely into the sun as it was so low.

So depressing - but not at all surprising - how many golfers, usually wealthy golfers, are right as wing as fuck.

And how depressing is that? "I've learned to look past" the racism, the misogyny etc. Fuck off Jack.

Fuck off Jack.

Trump is more into Golf than any of the other things so getting a few golf pals to wade in was probably easy. SO thats Jack Nicklaus and the Taliban in favour.

Thankfully most people who know who Jack Nicklaus is will probably already be Trump supporters. I think the die have been cast now. Everyone who is going to vote surely already either has, or knows what they are going to do.

The comments below the tweet suggest this has not gone down well with his followers.

Some suggestions that this may have also assisted in Nicklaus making the decision.
