re: Official Open Championship Congrats Rory McIlroy (St Andrews 2015) Tiger T69 - Obi-Wan Tiger
Is there a different "clock" used on the players by the R&A? The final group finished shy of 4 hours. I turned the TV on this morning at like 7:15 or so and Woods' group was already done and had teed off at 3:45. In the Masters, the final group starts around 1:30 and doesn't finish until 6 pm or ...

I realize there have to be divisions to have a championship game, but we're just tossing things around so try this one: No divisions Each team has 3 opponents that they play every year. Play 5 teams home and away for two years, then rotate and play the other 5 teams home and away for two years....

one thing that has been overlooked and i think more important than scheme, is that the tackling was much MUCH better.

Yeah, i know nothing official, but my post is really based more around the likelihood that ESPN televises it.
