"I didn't get up here pre British Open and yesterday (Monday) I took the day off".

His beloved grandfather, Bob Julius, and most of his mother's side of the family was raised in the St. Louis area.

They picked up La Liga from Sky and Serie A from BT Sport, so this will be the only place you can see these games in the UK. I feel like I'm close and closing in. "It's a big deal, but I think, once you get out on the golf course and you start the tournament, all you're thinking about is trying to shoot good scores and hit good golf shots".
