    For me my pick has been a tossup between fool me 4 times shame on me Koepka — whom also has the caddie knowledge going for him now— and even more knowledgeable mr 61 at 16 at this track, Rory mac.

    Theres a new low mark at this great course because the rna needed space. But it seems they took rna money’s and changed this course because of Rory, not the rna needs.

    So Kinda feeling grown up Rory having that epic Northern Irish moment everyone is hoping for, maybe reclaiming his record along the way. Maybe just maybe the desire outweighs the pressure for Rory and some true magic happens this week.

      I got a quick glimpse of the Rory 61 card and it looked like the course played under 6900 yards; This week is will be much, much longer
