The Circus Is In Town – Hip Hip Hip Hooray!

There is something magical about the circus coming to town!

No I’m not talking about the Big Top and CoCo The Clown, but instead the LPGA, Ladies European Tour and The Ladies Golf Union.

Whilst 27 Open Championships have be held at St Andrews, this will be the very first time a Women’s British Open has been held on the most famous of links. It truly is an exciting time for all the players as they dream of winning a Major at “The Home of Golf”.

Ron Sirak, golf writer for Golf World writes a great piece on how one of the 150 starters will take a slice of history at this year’s Ricoh Women’s British Open.

I for one know I will be fortunate to be one of the spectators taking in the action as play starts at 06:30 tomorrow. Do I follow Paula Creamer off at 06:52, Lorena Ochoa at 07:03, Cristie Kerr and Natalie Gulbis at 07:14, or Michelle Wie ? Tough decision – answers on a postcard!
