Skipping the Irish Open in County Clare to play the Scottish Open the following week to give himself in theory the best preparation of winning at Royal Portrush, all seems very sensible - so yes he will take heat for it on social media from the usual idiots etc

Top form right after he's dumped one.

R&A admit concerns for Open in Portrush due to Brexit

R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers admits he will pleased when this year's Open Championship at Royal Portrush is over after revealing the "significant concern" being caused by Brexit.

Portrush will stage the Open for the first time since 1951 from 18-21 July and tickets for the championship days at the Northern Irish venue have already sold out.

However, that decision was announced in October 2015, eight months before the referendum to leave the European Union, and the continuing uncertainty surrounding Brexit - and in particular the backstop to retain an open border on the island of Ireland - is causing headaches for golf's governing body.

"Like every business, and I think about the Open as such, the lack of certainty about the rules, the law in which we are operating under post-March 29 has caused us significant concern," Slumbers said.

"In hindsight would I be wanting to do Portrush in the year that we would be potentially leaving the European Union without a deal? No.
