The Open 2012

If you’re a golfer, you know that The Open 2012 refers to what most Americans call The British Open, a golf classic.  This is played each year in July on one of about six courses in the UK.  This year it is being played in northwest England at the Royal Lytham and St. Annes Club.

Most of the courses that are used are public, but this is a private club.  However, it is right in the midst of a residential setting.  Some of the views of the golfers hitting their shots include the residential setting surrounding this course.

Here is the link if you would like to view The Open on ESPN through your computer.

This is an interesting event for so many reasons.  One of which is the prize trophy.  The Claret Jug.  Lots of history here.  This is passed around from winner to winner with each winner’s name engraved on it.  Wow!  How really special this is.

Will you or have you watched The Open?  Thoughts?  Would love to hear from you.
