PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland – It took 68 years for The Open Championship to return to Northern Ireland. It’s been 48 years since The Open was the last major of the PGA TOUR season. It’s been 37 years since the last U.S. sweep of the majors. With Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and Gary Woodland claiming the first three this season, the Americans can run the table again. “I like that trend,” Woodland said. It’s doubtful the fans at Royal Portrush feel the same.
