Hard to fathom with our temps again flirting with triple digits, but over at the British Open at Royal Birkdale in Lancanshire, England it looks like December.
It’s in the ‘50s with rain, 40 mph wind, guys hitting 9-iron from 205 yards and, worst of all, no sign of the injured Tiger Woods. To make matters more surreal, 53-year-old Greg Norman is near the top of the leaderboard.
Which, somehow, brings us to our local angle. Anthony Kim, who lives in Dallas, led briefly and just down the road 14-year-old Jesuit sophomore Jordan Spieth took second in the British Junior Open yesterday. So there. -- Richie Whitt
