      Nice to see Tiger improving from his recent form.

      Can't see Spieth throwing this away now. Fantastic little player he is and especially for his age.

      Holy crap. He just attacked 13 with reckless abandon and pulled it off. Wow.

      Big week in my hometown, well I've since moved a few miles away but where I grew up, as the Irish Open come to Newcastle County Down and to one of the greatest golf courses in the world.



      http://www.irishopen.ie/

      The field is amazing and possible one of the best on the tour this year and it will be fantastic to see so many great golfers so close to home and the first time I'll see them live.

      I'm off to the Pro Am tomorrow and have tickets for the final day on Sunday and the buzz around the town and local area is huge and I cannot wait.

      It is a stunning backdrop mate and although I'm biased it reall is one of the best in the world in terms of golf and the course itself is regularly rated in the top 2/3 or so in the world.

      We had a great day today at the Pro Am even though it pissed down for about 3 hours in the afternoon. Got to see the three local lads, Rory, Darren Clarke and G Mac, play a few holes and also seen the likes of Sergio, Ernie, Rickie Fowler, Westwood and many more play the course.

      Tony McCoy was out with Rickie and his tee shot on 11th was as long as the pro and he actually made par there. Great golf from him. Missed Shane Warne as we were wacthing Clarke hit his second on the 11th following a wild hooked tee shot so the others by passed us in that group. Jimmy Nesbitt and Paddy Wallace, Irish Rubgy player, were out with Ernie and we seen a good few holes with them along with getting a chat and picture with Paddy after the 18th which was a nice surprise.

      As I said a great day out and nice and relaxed in preparation for us going to the final day on Sunday.

      I have a passing interest in golf and I've never heard of or seen that course before, but I will remember it now.

      Attending a Pro Am seems to be a great day out with a relaxed atmosphere that you wouldn't get during a tournament. It certainly sounds like you had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed it.

      Sunday will a different altogether and I hope it's a dramatic finish, rather than someone running away with it.

      Nice gesture from Rory - donating his winnings to his charity. I read about it on the BBC Sport website.

      Never heard of Royal County Down? Shame on you.

      It was a great day and like you said nice and relaxed but looking forward to the competition proper.

      Apparently the weather made the course a right bi*ch this morning with Rory having a nightmare +9 80 round.

      My handicap was heading down into low single figures at one time.
      My swing has gone to sh*t since the hip replacement operation, and losing a bit of muscle to infection around the incision hasn't helped.

      It's a cracking course, and one I just have to play at some point, even if I go round over 100  :laugh:

      I know, it's shocking that I hadn't heard of Royal County Down before.  :angel:

      I have only ever played 3 full rounds of golf and one of those was in horrible weather, so I know what that's like.

      On my way now to Newcastle for the final days play.

      Local interest is all but gone with Padraig having a nightmare yesterday and even McDowell's -2 leaves him too much to do I feel.

      Conditions are going to be tough again with rain and wind so another interesting days golf is ahead.

      Gutted I missed it Crouchy.

      Speith is going to be one special player.

      Gutted for you mate. Was an amazing day.

      Spieth was the first of the overnight leaders to drop a shot when he 3 putt the second, then Johnson looked like he was going to run away with it then double bogied midway and then Grace looked like he would win it.

      Feel sorry for Jason Day. Again! Yet another promising position slips but can't blame him this time. Credit for even stepping out and finishing the course.

      Well done to Shane Lowry who won the Bridgestone tournament last night.  Seems a proper character.  He doesn't get any FedEx cup points from it but it does get him a PGA Tour Card for 3 years and he says he is going to try and play both that and the European Tour.

      Think he'd be a great character on a European Ryder Cup team in the future.

      Well in.

      Final day at Wisconsin.

      Had Day at 12/1 start of the tournament and he leads by 3 after birdying the 2nd after finding the bunker on his 2nd shot.

      Spieth 3 behind. Grace has birdied 11 of the last 26 holes with no bogies so he's coming home strong, too. Set for a cracker finish.

      Going to be very tough. Unlike some of the other majors he's gone close in, everyone is playing very well here and making shots not simply surviving by making par most of the time.

      Grace, Rose and Spieth are playing superbly.

      Yeah, you've got to keep making shots if you want a chance. Day has started well though which is always a good sign.

      Sunk some clutch puts from dodgy positions. Back 9 is going to be so good to watch.
