The beauty of Open Championship golf and links golf for that matter is that it demands a variety of shots scarcely seen across the weekly haunts of the PGA and European Tours. Here's two great examples

Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #6

Who could forget the image of Jordan Spieth way right, deep into the dunes, faced with an unplayable lie, his procession towards a first Open Championship in serious jeopardy

Leona Maguire cruised through to the weekend in her final Ladies European Tour appearance of the season but her title hopes look forlorn at the Open de Espana.

Maguire arrived to the Costa del Sol for a first appearance since earning her promotion to the LPGA Tour via the Symetra Tour’s Order of Merit and after posting a one-over par effort on day one, the struggles continued on day two for the Cavan professional.

Three bogeys, three birdies and a double accounted for Maguire’s mixed bag on Friday but in many ways it’s to be expected with the former world amateur number one in the midst of a pre-season given her LPGA Tour dream will begin in Australia once again at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in February.

That said, Maguire will tee off on moving day in Andalucia with sister Lisa in tow hoping for a special birthday gift – a low round to rekindle her tournament ambitions – with the famous golfing twins turning 25 this weekend.

It’s just Maguire’s sixth appearance on the Ladies European Tour this season having competed mainly on the Symetra circuit across the Atlantic.

With Maguire trailing at three-over par at the halfway stage, Germany’s Karoline Lampert sets the standard at eight-under par after signing for consecutive rounds of 68.

Lampert heads a four-way tie for second at seven-under with Anne Van Dam and Maria Skarpnord amongst the chasing pack.
