Lineker's cred goes down Hill; THE OPEN.

AS insufferable English commentators go Gary Lineker is well on his way to Jimmy Hill status.

Take his performance when amateur Rory McIlroy finished joint second on Thursday after a dream round of 68.

A magnificent feat by the teenager so what is Lineker's first searching question? "How does it feel to be on telly?"

Well, how does it feel to be a patronising git, Gary?

He wasn't finished there, winding up with the painful: "It must be well past your bedtime so I'll let you go."

Alternative uses for a three iron anyone?

THE media bunfight is traditionally the busiest week of the year for those of us lucky enough to write about this great game.

But not for The Herald, Sunday Herald and Evening Times staff who clocked out at 3pm on Friday after their unions called a strike.

Talk of forming a picket line at the Bollinger Tent wasn't in the spirit of socialist solidarity.

So they opted for a quiet pint, only to return complaining that at pounds 3.30 a scoosh next month's lighter pay packet couldn't sustain another round.

THE lengths folk will go to for an authentic Tiger Woods souvenir.

First on Friday a fan risked hypothermia by wading into the Barry Burn to recover the great man's wayward tee shot.

Yesterday a lady went even further, risking brain damage by taking another Tiger loose shot square on the head.

It worked a treat though. After completing the hole he apologised and gave her the offending ball.

BEST shout of the week from the gallery came after that Tiger drive into the water on two day.

When he turned to an official and asked if the ball was 'OB' one fan quipped: "Tiger, it's already on eBay!"

THE sight of Thomas Bjorn with a Colin Montgomerie biography begs two questions.

Is the Dane literally seeking to take a leaf out Monty's book or has he been having trouble sleeping at night?

IAN POULTER'S popularity anywhere west of Bristol might drop over his cheeky response to an interview request from Radio Wales: "Do they have radios in Wales?"
