A few days ago I asked for a British winner but given Seve's status in the game, I wouldn't have minded a Spanish winner. Luke Donald and Lee Westwood were toast by Day 2 so out went the world's No.1 and 2! But chasing places each week on a golf circuit is very different from winning a Major. Looking at those that win them there is no obvious logic as to why except over the four days they play better than anyone else. It is that simple.
Darren Clarke's great win for the Clarke family old and new was wonderful for the game itself.
When soccer, cricket and now rugby union, lose their integrity it stains their sport.
Four British sports stand out as to how to administer and play them - Wimbledon (though not the LTA), the R&A (save their treatment of women), Rowing and Cycling.
