Ann is at Royal Portrush for the Open Championship and chats with Bob Bubka, the Voice of Golf for TalkSportRadio in the UK & with Eamon Lynch of Golfweek about the ‘Troubles’ period of violence and turmoil that he lived through growing up in Northern Ireland and how the country has been able to overcome that and shake the negative perception and land the Open Championship.
You’ll also hear excerpts of Rory McIlroy’s pre-Championship press conference and hear his hopes and expectations prior to the start of the Open Championship. McIlroy, the favorite coming into this Major, grew up near Royal Portrush, shot the course record when he was 16 (a 61!) but disappointingly, did not make the cut, carding a disastrous 79 on Thursday, and despite putting on quite the show in the 2nd Rd., shooting a 65, Rory missed the cut by 1. #TourismIreland
