Selena, thanks for the link to the story. Very interesting.It seems to me that if an event is truly an Open then anybody regardless of handicap (or no handicap) should be able to pay an entry fee and try to qualify. If they are a bad golfer, they just don't go any further and that is that.Why the R&A went to such lengths to ban the guy from even trying seems silly to me. The R&A could have let him play and then use it as a positive for them instead of looking like a bunch of stuffed shirts. The guy could have been a much bigger folk hero (like Eddie the Eagle and Jack Lemmon at the Clambake) and the R&A would have benefited from it.Oh well, I guess by definition if you are a member of the R&A you are a stuffed shirt.Roger
