You cannot call overseas Liverpool supporters glory hunters. We’ve won one trophy this decade. If they’re glory hunters, they’re really bad ones. They’re actually journey hunters. It’s the journey and the story. Something about Liverpool has grabbed them." - Neil Atkinson (May, 2019)

Huge day for McIlroy. Never will a major course be set up to favour him like this again. You have eagle chances on about 7 holes. His driving is his main asset and on a course that has no defence to it, he's been clinical. He's yet to throw in a silly mistake to derail him and if he keeps his tempo the same as he has so far then Hovland and any chasers will have to shoot a 64 or better to win IMO.


I've said it more than once but so much of it is in his head with the majors. 8 years without one. Coming into this he was the favourite, in red-hot form, he was the golden prince in terms of his response to the danger of LIV and the course as I said is perfect for him. I don't want to say it is now or never, but this is the best chance he'll have to break that major drought.

Wouldn’t mind seeing Rory win one again but would quite like to see Hovland win his first. Just as long as it’s not a Cameron.

Goes against the grain I know, but I’m of the same mind. Hovland has been quietly impressive and stepping out of his playing partner’s shadow this week would be great to witness.

St Andrews is boring to me. There’s nothing to look at, it looks and feels like they’re playing 1 hole 18 times each round. I get the history but it doesn’t do it for me at all. Links golf as a whole is rubbish as a spectator.

Rory is limping to the finishing line. Might be enough to win it but really needs a couple of birdies to ease himself over the line. Lucky Hovland is not putting any pressure on him..... Yet

McIlroy can’t just coast through this, gonna have to start taking some risks
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

If McIlroy could putt like Smith he'd be 10 ahead.

Missing far too many mid-distance putts.

Yesterday Smith and Young were the last group and both struggled while McIlroy and Hovland were the scond from last group and looked unbeatable.

Same story today but with the groups reversed.
