Listen: David Rory, Golf, Roy Mcelroy discussed on Dave Sinclair Lincoln and Ford Sports Open Line
"We're used to seeing the golf course but it's not like there's an irrigation system, sprinkler has in the middle of the fairway but. They're. Not there this is. The way that, they play golf in Scotland on big time. Golf, courses what whatever mother nature and you good or bad wow what, you're gonna play. We got the but that's what golfs all about all these honestly, these fancy ass, country clubs all over America and he's golf courses which I won't. And I are very tough courses and beautiful and magnificent and well capped and mazing and brilliant and different kinds of grass they use and everything else but you cannot tell me that you will. Never sell me that's better than what that what I'm looking at right now at. Carnoustie there's. No way that you can top, that it's it's different it, which doesn't mean you can't Appreciate both of them you can't enjoy both of them. But the origin of the game where it actually came. From hundreds of years ago is what we're seeing at Carnoustie what we will see, you next year when we go to Royal Portrush up in Northern Ireland what we see, when we go back. To Saint Andrews those are the places where the game came from here in the, United States really and it's you know it's just. A. Different deal the influence. Of Augusta National, in the influence of golf courses in the. Way, of people here think it has to be green there has to, be lush green. Ross you have to water the hell out of everything it's there's, this quite sort, of changing revival in new courses some of the coolest new courses. Actually look like they've been around forever which is great and they go much back tomorrow but what you're seeing courtesy is the way the game was originally intended to be played and it can be, so much fun so David Rory grew. Up on Royal Portrush didn't he Rory grew up playing around that area, yeah through northern he's he's between there and County. Down in a couple of other places as much as his home course in Hollywood Northern, Ireland those are those are his venues. Yeah so I think, he's in a great spot and three back on this leaderboard tell me about well first of all I'd like? To, know about. What you thought of his round because he's such a bad ass I love that nine this guy in in opens, to be. Honest with you and then the. Other. Thing I'm going to ask. You about was these all these South, Africans on the leaderboard three of them well. I'll be honest with you I'm not. Really familiar with Andrew Lombard but I can tell you that. ROY McElroy it's interesting, it was it was. A much better, day for ROY Macarena links golf course then then I would expect here's not, somebody who typically plays really really well in windy conditions in rainy conditions he. Plays really, well after rainy conditions his major championships have been won on long wet golf courses when he wanted congressional it was soaking wet. We went Kia what, was soaking when we were at when he. Went to c. j. chip but they were all on wet long golf courses because he drives the, ball so well, one of the things that we're seeing about Carnoustie is everybody's long when. The ball lands, because, it's so baked, out and dry you're gonna get forty fifty eighty yards of chase down the fairway so the. Guy who's leaving golfed. Around Kevin Kisner is not an especially long guy off. The tee but he's pretty Straight so he hits driver he's, gonna hit the ball by two hundred eighty yards fly he's going? To, get another seventy yards of. Role so all of a sudden Kevin, Kisner who's straight is Rory mcilroy long in. Some ways. I think. It's a real disadvantage you know you're taking one of the things, that separates Rory separates Dustin. Johnson and Tony FINA who had another, one of their strengths everybody's got that this. Week it's kind of a weird weird. Sort of dynamic Brennan stone one you know a European tour. Event he shot sixty, the other day obviously. He's he's riding, I made a putter change coming into this week this South African then you, start talking about but this golf course doesn't stay her or hinder anybody you. Can you, can be a big hitter short hitter as long as you can execute and be accurate you can play this golf course right. Now I did want, to say you had mentioned the baked and.."
