Other: It seems way too early for this to be the final major but since it is, we’re going to have to enjoy every last minute of it. Once the final putt drops on Sunday afternoon it will be nine months until another major championship is handed out (2020 Masters). That being said, everything points towards this week being an all-timer. The course, the field, the fans, the history, the weather; it’s all top-notch. With a multitude of story-lines and players to follow, we should be in for a treat from Thursday morning to Sunday afternoon. Just don’t forget to set your alarms! Coverage will start super-duper early in the AM and be done by early/mid-afternoon. Also keep an eye on the extra support fans will give to their fellow Northern Irish lads Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy and Darren Clarke.
