PODCAST #111: Guide to Royal Portrush and The Open


On episode #111, it’s Open Championship week, and we look at all the Australian chances as the fabled, old tournament goes back to Northern Ireland for the first time since 1951.

Our own man on the spot Justin Falconer has exclusive interviews for ITR with Queenslanders Cameron Smith, who expresses his love for Royal Portrush, and with Jake McLeod, the 24-year-old having his first Open Championship start.

Meanwhile Blakey talks us through the ins and outs of ‘Open Championship’ versus ‘British Open’ and admits he finds the proper name a little pretentious.

We also talk to Sport Australia’s Andrew Larratt about funding of golf and the way forward for the game from the Federal Government’s perspective.
