McIlroy and Faldo – the face of golf has changed

Stella and I were lucky enough to get to the first day of the OPEN (not the British Open). and to watch Rory McIlroy stride though 15 to 18 on the way to the first of two consecutive 66’s.

At the time of blogging, McIlroy is six shots ahead of the field after this masterful sequence of shots bought him an Eagle at the 18th.


And who’d have ever foreseen the organisers of an open championship tweeting the final day pin positions!
