Alright, the Wall Stret Journal live-blog has still been happening this weekend. What? You didn’t know? Because you aren’t watching the British Open? Or you aren’t on the computer procrastinating at work and you’re actually watching it? That makes no sense. Okay, well, let’s try to make the final nine holes are so at least a little exciting.
Is Oosthuizen slipping? He just missed a par putt. Gasp! Is Casey making a run? Will it be enough? Or are a bunch of guys just playing for second? Let’s find out. Go to live-blog here.
Oh, I wrote a story about my spectacular afternoon in the men’s-only R&A Clubhouse for WSJ. Read it here.
As the leaders were teeing off in the third round of the Open Championship, I had the best seat in the house — of course, I was watching from the window of the Big Room in the Royal & Ancient Golf Club’s clubhouse directly behind the first hole with a perfect view that feels as if it goes on for miles. Perched on a brown leather club chair, I saw Lee Westwood and Paul Casey hit their drives against the westerly wind (left to right). The final pairing of Louis Oosthuizen and Mark Calcavecchia followed shortly.
