There is always a lot of talk before a major golf tournament like the Open. Conversations turn to golfing matters in pubs and clubs around the land. Folks debate about who is going to win the championship. Talk of form and horses for courses. Chatter about favourites and smokies. Who is due and who the sentimental choice is? Lee Westwood is my sentimental favourite and universally considered most due. An English golfer has not won the Open on English soil since 1969 via Tony Jacklin. That is 52 years without a victor from the home country. How fitting would it be for Westwood to salute at Royal St George’s?

A deserved victor for sure. Is Royal St George’s Golf Club the perfect place for a golfing wrong to be righted? The perfect track for Westwood to win and achieve his major dream?
