British Open 2019: Golf results from Portrush at a glance
How the golf elite beat the Royal Portrush Golf Club at the British Open 2019, you will find all results from Northern Ireland here at a glance.
+++ 19.07.2019: British Open: catching up with McIlroy, Woods and Schmid not rewarded +++
The 148th British Open goes without her figurehead Rory McIlroy in the crucial phase. The Northern Irish local hero retired early on Friday evening at the major tournament in the Royal Portrush Golf Club despite a terrific catch-up hunt prematurely. Even for US star Tiger Woods and the German amateur European champion Matthias Schmid, there was no happy ending. Both clearly missed the qualification for the two decisive rounds on the weekend.
The lead in the $ 10.75 million major tournament is shared by J.B. Holmes from the US and the Irishman Shane Lowry, each with 134 strokes ahead of the Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood and Lee Westwood (both 135).
Northern Ireland's star McIlroy showed fighter qualities on his home ground on the day after the embarrassing 79-hour opening round, kicking off in front of thousands of fans. The 30-year-old folk hero needed only 65 strokes for his second round on the par-71 course, but failed at the end of a stroke at the cut. Annoying for McIlroy, because the four-time major champion knows the pitfalls of this golf course since his earliest youth: As a 16 -year-old he set the course record at the Royal Portrush Golf Club with 61 strokes.
Woods did not fare any better. The US idol was fully served after the two tournament days on the Northern Irish coast. After a weak round of 78 at the start, he played a 70, but in the end he clearly missed the cut. "This is more frustrating than anything else because I love this major so much," said the 43-year-old American. In early April, Woods had won his 15 major title with the triumph at the Masters in Augusta.
The harsh weather on the Northern Irish coast was not to Woods' liking. Already in the run-up to the British Open he had stated that cool temperatures and wind did not do his injured back well. His movements were then "not so supple".
European champion Schmid was even a beat better than his idol Woods - but for the two decisive rounds, it was not enough for the native Regensburg. Nevertheless, the 21-year-old amateur was satisfied with his British Open premiere. All in all it was a great week. "Playful was more in it," said Schmid at "Golf.de".
A photo with his role model Tiger Woods, he proudly posted on Instgram - the previous day he had already done one with McIlroy. Now the student, who holds a degree in finance from college in Louisville, wants to see the rest of the British Open days with his girlfriend. "We have access to the clubhouse and can enjoy that as something special."
+++ 19.07.2019: Golf star Tiger Woods at 148th British Open with no chance to cut +++
Golf superstar Tiger Woods retired prematurely at the 148th British Open in Northern Ireland despite an increase in performance on the second day. The 43-year-old American played a round of 70 on Friday's par 71 course at the Royal Portrush Golf Club. With a total of 148 strokes, the 15-time major winner has no chance of qualifying for the two decisive rounds at the weekend. The Masters champion had started the $ 10.75 million tournament yesterday with a blatant round of 78s.
The harsh weather on the Northern Irish coast was not to the liking of US idols. Already in the run-up to the British Open Woods had stated that cool temperatures and wind are not good for his damaged back. His movement would then be "not so supple".
+++ 18.07.2019: Golf star McIlroy spoiled British Open launch: phone destroyed by fan +++
Northern Ireland's golfing star Rory McIlroy made a disastrous false start at the 148th British Open in front of home fans, destroying a viewer's mobile phone as well. The title favorite and crowd pleaser delivered a catastrophic performance on Thursday at the Royal Portrush Golf Club's par 71 course with a round of 79s. As a 16-year-old he had already played a round of 61 on this golf course.
Already McIlroy's first tee on the Northern Irish coast went badly wrong. The uncontrolled ball of the four-time Major winner hit a woman on the hip and damaged her cell phone, which she had stowed in her trouser pocket.
Even worse than McIlroy fared it to the former world ranking first David Duval. The 47-year-old American returned to the clubhouse with a round of 90s. On the seventh fairway, a par 5, he needed 13 strokes to sink his ball in the hole.
Even the German amateur European champion Matthias Schmid did not make a good start at his British Open premiere. The 21-year-old did not get past a round of 76.
Germany's golf star Martin Kaymer had to give up his hopes in the afternoon, but still slip on the reserve list in the starting grid of the British Open. None of the 156 players had withdrawn his start. Sporty, the two-time Major winner from Mettmann had missed the qualification for the tournament, which is one of the four most important in the Gulf, the so-called majors.
+++ 18.07.2019: Favorites are fixed - even Matthias Schmid has chances +++
Favorites at the title of the fourth major tournament of the year are the World Number One leader Brooks Koepka from the USA, his compatriots Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson as well as Northern Ireland's golf star Rory McIlroy. Defending champion is the Italian Francesco Molinari. As the only German amateur European champion Matthias Schmid is in the Royal Portrush Golf Club at the start.
+++ 17.07.2019: Golf-Routinier Langer is sure: friend Kaymer comes back +++
Germany's golf idol Bernhard Langer believes further in the return of the currently weak Martin Kaymer in the circle of the best golfers. "He will find his way, he has a good head on his shoulders," said the 61-year-old Langer on Wednesday at a press conference in Mecklenburg Gneven about his friend. "No one can say if he wins majors again or becomes world number one again, but as long as he stays healthy, I'm not worried about Martin Kaymer, he'll continue to play world-class golf."
Kaymer still hopes for a last minute starting point at the 148th British Open in Northern Ireland Portrush. The two-time Major winner is led at position one of the substitute list, so that only one player would have to cancel, so that Kaymer may refuse again at the traditional tournament. For the first time in eleven years, he had missed the qualification for a major tournament for sporting reasons. Kaymer is currently only number 86 in the world.
Langer, who lives in the USA, is starting for the third time this Friday at the European Senior Tournament near Schwerin. "Of course, I hope to be at the top and take the trophy on Sunday, but the competition is big," said the 1985 and 1993 Masters winner. Langer has been the dominant player on the US champions' tour for eleven years. 39 tournaments could win the first number one of the golf world (1986) in the over 50-year-olds so far.
+++ 16.07.2019: Superstar Tiger Woods: Golf is not number one in life +++
For Tiger Woods, there are more important things than golf. "No, it has never been that way," said the 15-time major winner from the United States on Tuesday at the press conference before the British Open in Northern Ireland's Portrush. "Golf was part of my life, something I've done most of my life, but it has never been the most important thing in my life, mom and dad and my kids were the most important things in my life, and that has not changed. "
Woods intends to win his 16th major title this Thursday at the Royal Portrush Golf Club. His game was not quite there yet, where he would like it, betrayed the long-time number one in the world. "I had a good session on the track today, and I need one more tomorrow, so I hope it's enough to get ready."
+++ 15.07.2019: Golf professional Kaymer still hopes to participate in British Open +++
Germany's golfing star Martin Kaymer has not given up hope for a start at the 148th British Open. The 34-year-old from Mettmann traveled to Northern Ireland's Portrush on Monday and hopes to get through the reserve list in the field of participants in the fourth major tournament of the year. According to his management, Kaymer is currently ranked one of the world rankings' reserve list, leaving only one player to retire so that Kaymer can once again turn down the traditional tournament.
The two-time Major winner had missed the first time in eleven years the qualification for a major tournament for sporting reasons. Only at the PGA Championship 2017 he had missed due to injury, otherwise he was with all majors since 2008.
Kaymer's automatic start right at the British Open was five years after his last win (US Open 2014) and also on the world rankings, the Rhinelander had not made the leap into the field of participants. The former world ranking first had lost the last chance to qualify for the oldest golf tournament in the world on Sunday at Scottish Open on 20th. The British Open will take place this Thursday at the Royal Portrush Golf Club.
+++ 07/14/2019: Golf professional Kaymer misses qualification for British Open +++
Germany's top golfer Martin Kaymer will miss for the first time in eleven years at a major tournament for sporting reasons. The 34-year-old from Mettmann came on Sunday at the Scottish Open in North Berwick despite a strong 65 final round with a total of 268 strokes only to the split 20th place and thus missed the qualification for the 148th British Open. Only at the PGA Championship 2017 Kaymer had missed due to injury, otherwise he was with all majors since 2008 here.
Kaymer's automatic start right at the British Open had expired five years after his last victory (US Open 2014) and the rider from the Rhineland had not made the leap into the field of competitors via the world rankings. The former world ranking first would have to reach the top ten in Scotland, where he won in 2009, and be among the top three players yet to qualify for the oldest golf tournament in the world. The fourth and final major tournament of the year will be played in Portrush, Northern Ireland, from 18 to 21 July next week.
The winner of the seven-million-dollar European Tour event on the Scottish coast was Austrian Bernd Wiesberger. The 33-year-old won the third extra hole against Benjamin Hebert from France. Previously, both had each required 262 strokes for the four rounds at the Renaissance Club. Max Schmitt from Andernach (273 strokes) finished the tournament on the shared 48th place. The Duesseldorf Maximilian Kieffer had not made the cut and was eliminated before the weekend.
