Brian’s The Man At Hoylake & 2023 Ryder Cup

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Anyway, let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

The Open Championship

After a six-year drought, Brian Harman clinched his first major title with a commanding six-stroke win at The 151st Open.

Harman maintained a big lead at Royal Liverpool on the final day, sealing the victory with a one-under 70.

Finishing the tournament at 13 under, Harman left behind Jon Rahm, Tom Kim, Sepp Straka, and Jason Day in a four-way tie for second place.

Rory McIlroy aimed for his first major title since 2014 and came within four of the lead but ended tied-sixth.

McIlroy’s hope of overcoming a nine-stroke deficit was spurred by early birdies, but he fell short of the top.

Home favourite Matthew Jordan earned a place in The Open 2024 with his top-10 finish and clutch final hole.

My takeaways from the week:

  • The Open Championship is still my favourite major. I love The Masters, but something about The Open is just special.
  • Harman deserves more credit for how well he played and how easy he made winning The Open look.
  • Golf isn’t always about who can hit it the furthest.
  • Royal Liverpool is a great golf course and links golf really is the best.
  • Being a good putter is a superpower. Harman’s stats from inside 10 feet are just ridiculous:

Evian Championship

The tour heads to France for the penultimate women’s major of the year, The Amundi Evian Championship.

Set at the stunning Evian Resort Golf Club, the best players in the world will be looking to pick up a major victory.

With the previous three major championships being claimed by first-time major winners, could this week be a similar storyline?

Something Useful

Reading greens is something that many golfers really struggle to get to grips with.

It’s an art, that can be learnt. Here’s how:
