That’s en­ter­tain­ment

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

I write to you just a few short hours after the fan­tas­tic con­test be­tween Hen­rik Sten­son and Phil Mick­el­son. I’m pos­i­tively glow­ing. That had to be the best fi­nal day of The Open, if not any Ma­jor, in mod­ern his­tory. Both played ab­so­lutely su­perbly, which made for avid tele­vi­sion view­ing.

I am so pleased for Hen­rik win­ning a Ma­jor at last, which is no less than he de­serves. To win it in such a man­ner, with Mick­el­son him­self shoot­ing 65 and still los­ing by three shots, must have meant a great deal to Hen­rik.

Hats off also to Mick­el­son, who, hav­ing played so well over four-anda-half hours, had the good grace in de­feat to look so pleased for Hen­rik, and at the same time had some nice words to of­fer him. Top man.

I do like it when some­one new wins a Ma­jor. It must be a life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for them. Phil has won a few him­self so he’ll get over it, and he can take con­so­la­tion in the en­ter­tain­ment he pro­vided the golf­ing world on that Sun­day in Troon. John Parker, Pwll­heli
