Wow!

 

That was btw the 3rd ace on the hole. Davis Love III did it as well!

Decent performance of the argentines (though Cabrera had a nightmare last 4 holes...). I hope Cabrera climbs rankings and gets our 2nd olympic quota instead of Gomez, since I think Cabrera is better despite inconsistency.

Swedish Henrik Stensson won British Open (hos first masters) breaking Tiger Woods record of best overall record (-20), 3 shots before 2nd place Michelson and 14 before 3rd place. Both top players Will play in Olympics even though some of the best Will miss it. World no1 Jason Day WHO Will not play in rio were 21 shots aftEr Stensson.

The Ryder Cup is looking like a close race this year. After a terrible start for Europe losing 4-0 in the first foursomes they won 3 out of 4 four-balls. At the moment it's 2 foursomes for each, but match 2 between Snedeker/Koepka vs. Stenson/Fitzpatrick is very close. Later today we will have 4 four-balls before it finishes with 12 singles.

After an impressive finish by the spanish pair, the foursomes ended up with 2½ for Europe and 1½ for USA. Sadly USA won 3 very close four-balls meaning they are up by 3 going into the finishing singles. This means that USA only needs to win 5 of the 12 singles. Not as big a lead as 2012 when Europe pulled of a huge comeback.

 

The 3 first singles will be very important. McIlroy who has been Europe's best player is up against Reed who has been one of the 2 best US players; Stenson who played brilliant golf in the afternoon fourballs on friday but not as good the rest of the time up against Spieth. They've already been up against eachother 3 times during this Ryder cup with 2 wins for Spieth and one for Stenson. And the 3rd with Pieters who lost the first foursome by a great margin but won the other 3 with McIlroy. He will be up against J.B. Holmes who didn't play the two foursomes. 

 

It will be close, but sadly I think the cup will go to USA for the first time since 2008.

Two random Australian guys pretended to be professional golfers so they could participate in the...North Korean Open :d 

http://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2016/11/2/13497436/australian-men-fake-professional-golfers-north-korea-open-prank

 

The only competitor who finished below them was the 15-year old daughter of the Nepalese ambassador :lol:

 

 

(The "pretended to be professional golfers" part is a little confusing maybe, since the North Korean Open is an international amateur tournament, but who cares :p )
