Koepka keen to make local hero an Open legend

Tiger Woods US Open Getty Tiger Woods is gunning for his 16th major championship

This is a preposterous statement, but it's true: Djokovic had to win 10 grand-slam events before a lot of people would even consider that he might be the best player of his generation.

"It's trying to figure out what the best way to go about [the rest of the year] is".

"I made a mistake there on 12 at Augusta".

The first order of business was getting to know the links. Woods has not played the week after the U.S. Open since 2003. The sharp elevation, sensational views of the limestone cliffs known as White Rocks and the Dunluce Castle in the distance, it all looked familiar.

The Royal & Ancient wanted two new holes - Nos.

If anyone doesn't have McIlroy on their list of players most likely to win, they're doing you a disservice. My personality, I laugh and joke on the golf course.

"We play a lot in England where it's quite flat", Tommy Fleetwood said.

"Nice shot Tiger", came a roar as he splashed out at the second time of asking but many in the galleries had seen enough to write off his chances.

In Fields' case, the state sentence will be mainly symbolic since he has already received a life sentence on federal charges. The event stirred racial tensions around the country and highlighted the polarization that continues to grip the US.

"I grew up through the Troubles, but I was fortunate because I was playing golf and travelling all over Ireland from 13, and because of the golf 90% of my friends were Catholics at a time when Protestants like me simply didn't have Catholic friends. You've just got to get over it and move on". "But definitely, poor shots are going to get punished".

Brooks Koepka finally found a crowd that will cheer every time he walks past.

Tiger Woods will start his quest for a fourth Open Championship alongside compatriot Patrick Reed, while home favourite Rory McIlroy joins U.S. Open victor Gary Woodland for the first two rounds at Royal Portrush.

It was a mightily impressive achievement by the 43-year-old, whose well-documented injury struggles left many doubting whether he would win another major.

The current weather forecast for The Open Championship in Royal Portrush this week is for showery conditions on each of the four days with with winds gusting up to 28km/h. It's not prescriptive of how he'll play all Opens into the future - or even this year's event in Northern Ireland - but it is a paragon of the breadth of his gifts and how The Open is the most receptive place for him to distribute them.

This will be a nervous moment, and a proud one. He said he texted Koepka, hoping to get some advice on the course. "Will there be tears? No". Past year on Saturday, he said, "Let me try and get there first, and ask me again". "That's what they do", said Clarke in reply to whether he was comfortable in this guise as starter. It's going to be an incredible tournament.

On Monday evening, he left the driving range at Royal Portrush full of optimism and anxious to get back at it on Tuesday, when he's planning to play an afternoon practice round under McCormick's watchful eye. The holes at Keene Trace Golf Club have names too.

"I was very, very careful with it, especially the first few weeks". What Connelly lost in sleep, he gained in positivity, as he had good conversation with the jubilant first-time PGA Tour victor on the trip over. "That, obviously, had the priority".
