    Ross Kinnaird

    Good day associates, particularly these of you who’re mourning the tip of males’s main season! The Open Championship delivered in a giant manner, and it was extraordinarily enjoyable to look at golfers take their social media accounts throughout the pond. Gamers, caddies and followers all the time carry it to the subsequent stage throughout majors, and this week was no exception. I’d be mendacity if I stated I wasn’t somewhat bummed about Rory McIlroy arising simply quick, however between Max Homa attending to play with Tiger, Shane Lowry’s back-to-back eagles on Saturday and Cam Smith’s insane again 9 on Sunday, there have been loads of memorable moments from this yr’s Open.

    I additionally discover it fairly fascinating that this yr’s oldest males’s main winner is Justin Thomas! Twenty-five is the brand new 35 on Tour and I’m wanting ahead to a 15-year-old successful a significant within the subsequent decade or so.

    Let’s take it from the highest.

    Spieth’s ice cream, Tiger’s glizzy

    To know me is to know that I really like ice cream. I maintain a operating checklist in my Notes app of each ice cream spot I’ve ever been (effectively, since 2016) together with a rating and common observations of the news. So I used to be excited to see that Jordan Spieth loved a cone on the Dwelling of Golf final week!

    Just a few issues to notice right here. First, that man is totally going IN on that ice cream. Maybe a cup would’ve been extra applicable for this case simply because he was taking part in golf, in spite of everything. Fortunately for Spieth, his agent, Jay Danzi, was there to function a cone caddie.

    Should be good! The closest I get to this stage of luxurious is when I’ve my sister maintain my ice cream whereas I drive residence. Apart from that, I carry round my very own cones.

    Subsequent up now we have Tiger doing One thing Regular, which for some cause is all the time enjoyable to see.

    Mr. Eldrick Tont Woods, grabbing a sizzling canine on the flip! Identical to any outdated man at any outdated course, apart from the actual fact he’s a 15-time main winner and this was taken at one of many wildest locations in golf (Adare Manor ultimately week’s JP McManus Professional-Am).

    JT will get chirped

    Justin Thomas hit the form of high you’d see at your native driving vary on Thursday at The Open. The type you solely hit while you’re taking part in by means of a bunch so that you’ve acquired a crowd.

    Couldn’t determine if 3w was an excessive amount of on 18 or if it was a flat 5w. Appeared like an ideal 5w downwind. Chilly topped it. Landed quick if the burn. Had 125 in. Good #onward

    He defined it on Twitter after his spherical, however I didn’t see video proof of it till a number of hours in the past.

    View with warning:

    So it was solely becoming that his taking part in parter, Shane Lowry, poked enjoyable at Thomas on Friday when he hit a significantly better tee shot on the 18th at St. Andrews. I want to take a second to personally thank Bryan Scutt for sharing this marvelous clip on Twitter. Content material warning: swears included.

    Lowry stated “A lot improved in any case!” to which Thomas replied, “shut the f— up.” I really like some good, pleasant banter, and I actually adore it throughout a significant championship. I additionally love figuring out that not even a three-time main winner is resistant to being made enjoyable of on the golf course.

    Lowry shared the next clip of his back-to-back eagles (!) on Saturday, and JT returned the favor with a spot-on reply of his personal:

    Your spotlight wasn’t taking part in with me the primary two days???

    — Justin Thomas (@JustinThomas34) July 19, 2022

    The primary two days jogged my memory why you and I by no means have to put on a microphone when taking part in 😂

    Then Smylie Kaufman acquired in on it, and now I’m extraordinarily curious to know what occurred at PGA Nationwide!

    Winners on planes!

    The next images of Cameron Smith had been shared as he took on the airport after successful The Open, and it acquired me considering: are gamers touring like the remainder of us after successful an occasion the very best style of golf images?

    No massive deal, simply storing the Claret Jug within the overhead bin! We can also’t neglect about previous winners who’ve made comparable strikes.

    Golfers doing regular issues with Claret Jugs and inexperienced jackets in tow won’t ever not be humorous to me. Whereas the remainder of us are attempting to navigate getting our laptops and iPads by means of safety, these guys are carrying round items of historical past with them. I can also’t assist however marvel how many individuals every winner was acknowledged by. Both manner, I hope to see extra content material of professionals flying business sooner or later.

    Cameron Smith breaks a LONG streak

    Historical past is all the time made on the majors, however some critical historical past was made on Sunday at The Open. Not solely did Cameron Smith win his first main, he broke the barrier for Camerons all around the world as he grew to become the first-ever Cam to win a significant. The primary Open Championship was performed in 1860, so this streak stood for 162 lengthy years earlier than Smith got here round. Large information for the Camerons on the market!

    Hopefully this now opens the floodgates. With Cameron Younger hanging round and a number of other different Camerons lurking (see Tringale, Davis, Champ), it may not be too lengthy earlier than we see one other Cameron with a giant win.

    Brooks hits the city

    Lacking the lower is rarely enjoyable, however not less than lacking the lower at The Previous Course means you’ve acquired some additional time to hang around in St. Andrews. And that’s precisely what Brooks Koepka and Jena Sims did over the weekend earlier than heading to their honeymoon. It’s not uncommon to see the professionals out and about in St. Andrews, but it surely’s protected to say individuals had been excited to see the four-time main champion.

    Shifting on from The Open (which I’ll miss dearly). I spent a number of days in Tahoe for the American Century Championship the week earlier than the Open, and it was a reminder that even individuals who can spend their time doing something they need select to play golf. It’s all the time enjoyable to see celebrities and athletes take their skills to the course and to study which of them are golf nuts identical to the remainder of us. After I acquired to speak with THE Nick Jonas, it’s protected to say my center college self was freaking out. To be sincere, mid-20s me was freaking out, too. I couldn’t consider something to ask Jonas whereas standing subsequent to him so I blurted out the very first thing that got here to thoughts: “How do you want your golf equipment?” Tremendous cool. Anyway, right here’s our chat about issues apart from his irons.

    I additionally acquired to tour the Travis Mathew activations whereas exploring the course, which meant I checked off two targets: I acquired to observe my left-handed layups and purchase a brand new t-shirt.

    Probably the most surreal (and my favourite) a part of the American Century Championship by far was chatting with totally different athletes and celebrities about their very own golf experiences. Extra on that to come back this week!

    And eventually, I acquired to see Miles Teller A.Ok.A. “Rooster” hit a drive. I see somewhat Matthew Wolff in that transfer…

    Earlier than we go — talking of Rooster — I’d be remiss to not share this High Gun-inspired video from TaylorMade:
