Happy New Year to all, even you slackers who don’t have to go back to work or studies until Monday.
Jim Furyk’s concession to the Europeans was strangely familiar to many that were at the last, infamous press conference for a losing USA Ryder Cup team four years ago at Gleneagles…but Phil Mickelson was strictly on-message this time.

Carnoustie 2018: so much to say, so little space. And as the sports editor said witheringly while assisting me at the Open last week, brevity is not one of my strongest suits...
“We didn’t know who it was” — Carnoustie barber amazed by reaction to golfing star Jordan Spieth’s ‘high and tight’ haircut
The owner of a Carnoustie barbers has said he is delighted with the publicity surrounding his shop after Jordan Spieth's "high and tight haircut".
Day three of the 2018 Open was a thriller, with defending champion Jordan Spieth firing himself into the lead. The fourth and final day of the competition is set up to be memorable after Tiger Woods brought himself back into contention.
Someone in one of Carnoustie’s better appointed housing estates answered their door this week to an incredibly polite, prematurely receding young man with a familiar face and even more familiar refrain: “Please, can we have our ball back?”
Being 158 years old and this being the 147th version, it’s naturally assumed by some that everything done at the Open Championship is dripping in tradition. But not everything.
Jordan Spieth can’t wait to defend his Open Championship title at “the tremendous challenge” of Carnoustie’s opening holes and repeating his dramatic Birkdale victory last year.
