Toffee Tommy leaves his mark
Fleetwood, Thomas, Olesen (12:53 BST)
Alex Bysouth BBC Sport at Royal Portrush
No prizes for guessing who this fan will be following today...
No, Tommy Fleetwood won’t be strutting his stuff at Goodison Park next season but the Toffees supporter did stop to sign autographs, and a couple of Everton shirts, during Monday’s practice round.

You can stream it on Vipbox. Very decent feed
Failing that, 5 live are covering it. You may not see the action but at least you'll be kept up to date.
Good Luck with your bet

Tommy's not that far away I believe in picking up a Major himself, as he has fared better than most, and consistently too in the recent events. Rock on Tommy and thanks for keeping Everton in the limelight.

As Derek says, he's not that far off landing a Major. Delighted for Lowry and the Irish but...what on earth happened to Rory McIlroy? Too psyched up for his home Open, I guess. That will have hurt him big time.

Surprisingly despite all the majors he has played in Mcllroy admitted he was very nervous when he teed off on Thursday morning. But he proved on Friday what aspecial talent he is by producing the round of the day a 65 in the worst of the weather, but still missed the cut by 1 shot. No doubt Shane Lowery was a worthy winner and his final round was brilliant.
Sadly as hard as he tried Tommy just couldnt hole the putts to put any pressure on Shane, but he will have many more chances to win a major.

All the build, all the anticipation...and then on the very first hole he quadruple bogeys!!!!
He was actually retrieving things a tad, but then closed the 18th with a triple bogey!!!
As you say, he restored some pride on the second day, but he torpedoed his own Open in the first 15 minutes on day one.

Rorys first hole disaster was just like the final day at Augusta in the Masters a few years back, he had a lead but lost it in the first few holes. His first drive on that Sunday went straight left as did the one on Thursday at Portrush.
As you say he had retrieved a lot of the damage till he got to 17 and 18 and handed all them shots straight back again. I know Rory changed his caddy JP a while back and appointed his great friend Harry Diamond to carry the bag, and to be fair they have had a decent season. But just wonder if maybe an older and wiser caddy may have helped calmed his nerves better on the Thursday.
