Reed/Mcilroy and Mickelson/Garcia was some of the most compelling golf I have ever watched. Glad to see the US get the Cup back, but more importantly the golf was top notch. The only negative was Westwood. Gotta feel for him.

I agree..Still don't know how Sergio pulled off a halve with 10 birdies thrown at him. I don't think Phil gave away the other 8 holes with bogies...Fantastic play all around by both sides..

Maybe it's just me but I am still having a hard time swallowing the TV's coverage of the event. I realize times change and it's on for umpteen hours. But IMHO they actually show very little. For me it's like watching ESPN's highlights with a bunch of commercials thrown in between or on top of the highlights. For example on the last day with the first match out on the 2nd hole Par 4, they showed a total of 2 shots. Rory's 2nd second shot and his putt..Not 1 shot from Patrick on that hole...How in the world can you not show those 8 shots on the second hole with the first group out?? Advertising and selling background drama laced sub-plot stories of course..

Just like Grady implied..the golf is the story!

Sorry for the rant..Just had to say it..

That's why I'd rather watch the same Open over again on Youtube than anything on cable today. 58 minutes of just golf and great commentary (and rain pelting the umbrellas).

Seeing Crenshaw and Sutton swing was so depressing. Hal is only 58 to my 56, and he can barely move. Crenshaw is really having trouble at 64. I guess I should feel lucky to still be able to move pretty well at 56, but I can see what is in front of me. Need to play more, while I still can. :(

Former MLB pitcher Bill Lee is now 69 years old. I recently heard an interview with him, which focused on how he still plays baseball in various forms in various friendly amateur leagues. The interviewer asked him "How can you still play (and still throw a fastball) at your age?" Lee replied, "I never stopped playing after I retired as a professional... The secret is to never stop your activities."
Accelerate forever!

Interesting topic, my wife is an Occupational Therapist and most of her dementia patients retired young and became reclusive. Living in Colorado you see a ton of vibrant healthy 70+ people hiking, biking, running, etc. There are some recent studies that discuss how the body moves the mind and I find this discussion so true in my experience. Never stop moving, Never stop learning...
