    It does look like Tiger will win the British open. Chris DeMarco of the good old USA will most likely finish 2nd.

    And, why do those british golf coarses look so ugly on TV.

    One, of the things I like about playing golf is going out on a beautiful golf coarse. All American golf coarses are beautiful.

    Would our British posters like to comment on this?

    Well, golf is not my game. But I have walked around the famous Scottish golf course of Gleneagles and it struck me as incredibly beautiful.

    So either

    (1) they don't use the most beautiful courses for televised tournaments

    or

    (2) we have different appreciations of beauty.

    They always look dried out and brown, even the greens. Maybe in person they are more attractive.

    I noticed that a few years ago when they were playing at St. Andrews in Scotland. Now, I don't have to tell you that St. Andrews is considered the premiere golf coarse in the world.

    Maybe "ugly" was too harse a word. But, I was in a harsh mood yesterday.

    Well, we're in the middle of a very hot, dry summer here, and (greens apart) I don't think that anyone would water golf courses.

    Another thing. Maybe it's thought to be more of a challenge if the course isn't lush and holding. (Isn't that part of the deal with seaside courses like St Andrews?)
