Bjorn Chokes - AMERICAN Curtis Wins the Open
I was wrong about Tiger. But this is a much better story.

Golf History.

1. Why the all-caps?
Just curious. I haven't been following the Open. Is the fact that Curtis is American a big deal?

3. Love to see the Euros CHOKE
Not as bad a choke job as van de velde (france), but more satisfying. Bjorn is a dick.

Curtis makes history.

9. Please clarify your position on Bjorn.
He's a "dick". Really? Can you please tell me why?

He's self-confident and slightly cocky at times yes. I love it. When American golfers talk like that (think Hal Sutton when he beat Woods at the Players Championship a few years ago), they are considered gutsy. If a Euro talks like that, he's a dick.

Bullshit.

5. Why the jingoistic tone?
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 01:29 PM by DoctorBombay
Why is American in capital letters? Why do people love to see Euros choke?

Did Thomas Bjorn did anything to you people? Is he a lesser person because he hails from Denmark?

I'm an American, and I feel really bad for Bjorn and equally happy for Curtis. I hope the kid makes something of his career.

Disappointing posts. Shit I would expect from Freepers.

:wtf:

edit: punctuation

7. I still can't believe Bjorn lost it
Bjorn was 3 shots clear with 4 holes to play but made a couple of bogeys and a double bogey.

10. That's a collapse of Norman-esque proportions.

12. Don't forget..
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 10:20 PM by KDLarsen
.. he managed to get that far despite being awarded 2 penalty strokes AND winding up in the bunker during his first round.

Oh, and I'm actually proud that he's from Denmark. So quit the name-calling, eh?
