The Most Memorable Moments of the 2013 British Open

Lefty finally did it! I hope you all were glued to your TV set like me this weekend watchin’ all the excitement out of Muirfield. From the groan-inducing putts to Phil’s first British win, it was definitely one for the ages. Here’s Scratch’s favorite moments from the tournament:


The Good



Let’s start with the 18th hole during the final round in which Phil Mickleson shot a 5-under 66 to secure his fifth major championship win. This dramatic putt won it for him.




This is a once-in-a-lifetime putt(well, our lifetime anyway). Robert Garrigus on the 15th hole sank this long putt from the fairway.




With his ever-present cigar and cool swagger, Miguel Angel Jimenez might actually be the Dos Equis in disguise. Check out this bunker shot where he’s standing half in and half out of the bunker.

Thomas Aiken shows with putt on the 18th that where’s there a will there’s a way. He may have missed his return putt, but come on, this is awesome!

The Bad



Rory McIlroy did not have a good experience at the Open. Here’s his 15th hole putt on Thursday that I’m sure we can all relate to.

Charl Schwartzel did not have a great first round at the Open Championship. So what did he do? He broke his 6-iron in frustration.




Thomas Bjorn’s rough shot breaks a ESPN camera lens. Cost: $80,000. Oops?
