Another Amazing “Majors” Finish Looming At St. Andrews; Spieth Remains The No. 1 Story, In Grand Position To Win The Third Leg of the Grand Slam

A real quick comment on what’s taking place at St. Andrews and its context for what has been an amazing year for golf’s “majors.”

Jordan Spieth wins at Augusta. Spieth wins at Chambers Bay after a bizarre week and a tragic finish for Dustin Johnson. Now a logjam at the top of The Open Championship leaderboard with one round to go and a horde of fantastic story lines.

To wit:

An amateur from Dublin among the three leaders

Spieth, incredibly, one stroke off the pace with 18 to go as he shoots for the third leg of the Grand Slam.

Johnson, seeking the greatest redemption imaginable, still within reach, despite a horrid third round, of his first major after several failures

Jason Day, so close so many times in majors as well, potentially the next great personality in the game if he can win Monday

Easily a dozen players capable of winning the Claret Jug tomorrow at the home of golf, many already with a major championship under his belt

And, pray tell, where is Tiger???  Where he belongs, home in Florida

This scenario is a great reason to call in sick tomorrow!

Cheers. Enjoy every minute, starting at 6 a.m, on ESPN.
