That's the last time I'm letting my heart rule my head and choosing Monty, not that my other picks are up to much!

Ah, well there's always Birkdale.

Shouldn't Luke Donalds score be counted from when he retired as it is not the same as missing the cut.......
It would help our scores no end!!!!!!!!!!!
