    Can't wait this Irish open,right on my doorstep. Going Thursday and Friday.ill see how it is and make decision about Saturday/Sunday. Nice to see Donegal get a bit off positive limelight now. Hopefully weather holds up as it's an amazing golf course. I've heard the added yardage to most holes too

    Came in here to say the exact same thing, he went well in the Scottish Open too without ever really challenging but his game is in a good spot!

    An absolutely wonderful days drama at the Open, Mollinari was perfect today and just kept steady all day. Incredible to see Woods getting back in the mix, Sky's coverage was fantastic too.

    The USPGA won't be available on TV over here by the looks of things. Eleven Sports have the coverage so most likely only available on the tinternet. Its getting more and more difficult to watch sport by the day.

    Could not believe that rights announcent when I learned of it a few days ago. Very strange for a huge global event to not want to try and broadcast to a wide audience.

    It's a disgrace in my own opinion, bad enough when everything went off free to air but now we're at the point that if you're paying nearly every premium channel you still can't get the bloody thibgs on TV. They're forcing people to illegal streaming sites.

    I was reading online earlier think it was The Irish Times that someone that's ordering the spots channels from scratch who has an interest in all sports will be set back over 1500 Euros for the year.

    It’ll just drive watching sports like listening to music - nobody paying for anything......

    Forgot to buy the tickets on Sunday last to the Open in Portrush.. went on today and Sunday sold out:( can’t believe they went that fast! Ended up getting the Fri and Sat instead of Sat and Sun. Been twice before - last time was the wind delayed St Andrews - and there was tickets available for all days up till weeks before!

    Just realised that eleven sports is free for a week... Sign up and cancel within a week for free.

    You'd think their trial would be 11 days. Seems like a missed opportunity to me.
