You've got to love the english summer weather! Cold, wet and windy conditions on the first day of The Open Championship and only three players could break par on the day.

Rocco Mediate, Graeme McDowell and Robert Allenby lead at -1.

Adam Scott, Bart Bryant and Greg Norman are just one shot behind at even par. Norman's round would have to be one of the best, for a player that doesn't play much competitive golf these days. It would be fantastic for him to win a third title, although I'm not expecting it. Although if he can play like that in those conditions who knows.

South Korean KJ Choi is the only player under par at the half way mark of The Open. Aussie Greg Norman continued his great form with a second straight even par round to be one stroke behind.

Greg Norman leads the Open Championship by 2 strokes going into the final round. A 2 over round has him at +2 for the championship, 2 ahead of KJ Choi and defending champion Padraig Harrington.

Will The Shark win a third British Open? People were concerned that without Tiger the tournament wouldn't be the same, but The Shark's performance has brought the crowds back.

Irishman Padraig Harrington has successfully defended his Open crown. A final round 69 gave him a 4 shot victory over Ian Poulter, with overnight leader Greg Norman finishing a further 2 shots behind after a 7 over 77.

Oh well, no fairytale finish again. Last month at the US Open with Rocco Mediate, and this time Norman would have been the oldest Major winner ever.

Good late afternoon from a part of The American Midwest-USA:

       We were pulling for Greg, but just like Tom Watson said, he needed to keep that driver out of the game plan.....We couldn't believe it, Paddy was down the middle, Greg was in the weeds......it was brutal....but, Greg is still a champion in so many ways......

       Respectfully,

Only 7 players are at under par after the first round. Several players still need to complete their first round.

Robert Karlsson, Jeev Milka Singh and Andres Romero lead at 2 under.

Rod Pampling is the best of the Aussie's at even par.

J B Holmes is the only player under par at the half way mark. At 1 under he leads by 1 shot over three players at even par.

Aaron Baddeley is the best of the Aussies at 2 over.

Wild weather halted play on the third day with the leading players looking at playing 36 holes on Sunday or even a Monday finish may be on the cards.

PADRAIG Harrington has won his second Major championship in three weeks.

The Irishman has produced another magnificent final nine holes to pass faltering Sergio Garcia and Ben Curtis down the stretch in difficult conditions at Oakland Hills.

All three players were tied with two holes left, but Harrington made a clutch three-metre birdie at the tough par-three 17th to take the lead, before making a five-metre par save at the last to stick a dagger into Garcia’s heart, the same man he beat in a play-off at last year's British Open.

Harrington carded a closing 66 to finish at three-under 277, while Garcia tied for second with Curtis, two strokes behind.

After last month winning his second successive British Open, Harrington has now won three of the past six Major titles.

Aaron Baddeley has finished best Australian, nine shots off the pace in a tie for 13th.

So, Eastwood Web Board golf fans ... Do you believe golf should be an Olympic event? I understand there's quite a debate going on about that.

Absolutely not!!

Well not with the current system where they have all these pros playing Tennis, basketball etc. These sports and any other sport with professionals playing at the Olympics is a joke.

If they want these sports at the Olympics, it should be by amateurs, not multi millionaires.

Actually there are too many sports at the Oylmpics but that's for another thread maybe?
