.....and so I should now be rubbing my hands and looking forward to a WGT couirse to celebrate the British open surely.....stands to logic??
Yes, you should be, operative phrase being "should be." That's how we got SA and RSG but the stuffed shirts at the last Open venue thought they were too good for WGT and wouldn't let them photograph the course. That made last year the Big Disappointment on the second course and WGT has quietly receded into the background on the topic. Net result--Pinehurst next year is the best you can hope for. :-(
