Spieth feeling rested, sharp in pursuit of another major

Early in the week, some players and caddies were considering a unique course management decision on the 9th hole. Or it might be one of Spieth, McIlroy, Johnson or Day, which could reignite talk of a small group at the top of the world.

Slumbers said: "But if you look at the players, the best players in the world play all over the world".

"I feel like the game is starting to get back to what it was" he said.

"Sorry?" Mickelson replied. "You just went birdie, birdie, birdie, eagle!" Day's expansiveness on a medley of underlying issues had the quality of soul searching. Really well-placed bunkers, ones where on some holes if you want to fly the short ones, instead of hitting iron off the tee, it's going to be very hard for you to fly them but leave them short of the next set of bunkers. "I didn't want to finish second place", he said. "I wanted it more than anything in the world".

"I always considered myself to be a good putter". And take a couple of injuries in that, as well. And I was very disappointed in that.

"I'm in a place where I'm trying to figure out how I get back to that position where I was this time two and a half, three years ago". But unlike the USGA's worst tendencies, it's perhaps more accurate to say it will be difficultly fair, and if there's a better description for what golf at its peak should strive for, it's tough to imagine. He also placed ninth in 2012.

Obviously there are other favorites that should have a strong chance at winning the 2017 British Open.

He said: "It's been a very stop/start year for me".

Two days before the start of his title defense at Royal Birkdale, Stenson said he had mixed feelings about the pressures of being the champion. It also puts into perspective just how remarkable the run by Tiger Woods was. "When it came to the choice to have someone guide me through the pro career, I don't know when exactly I asked him, but I thought it would be really nice to have the same person that was my college coach, and I saw the nice job he did with everybody, especially me".

"I think there are some wonderful players out there now that people want to come and watch, and the game is moving forward". "I'm very happy about the results of my mom". I'm disappointed in my game.

Every year at the Open Championship, fans and players alike are treated to one of the few tournaments played on true links courses. "And in my case it gets me to the mental state that I need to be to play golf". When you look back to the U.S. Open, that was one of the primary reasons that Brian Harman remained in contention all the way into Sunday. Fowler is a links and wind specialist with a Scottish Open win under his belt in 2015 at Gullane.

So much of his mystique is built around that 2015 season - the Masters and U.S. Open, five victories, the FedEx Cup. Not because it was a victory (he finished one shot outside the playoff in fourth), but because his experience that week on The Old Course at St. Andrews was a tipping point.

The Dallas, Texas, product comes into this week playing the best golf of those near the top of the world ranking - he's now third - having won recently at the Travelers Championship. "That's what I'm trying to get back to".

There are more candidates than ever to become a multiple major victor because 23 of the last 33 major champions had never won one before.
