If you go down to the Woods Tonight…
Photographs and report by Patrick Trollope

HE might not have been able to attend, but fans of Tiger Woods will be very delighted to find he has still had an impact on this year's Open Golf. On the Coastal Road, Roundabout, next to Pontins Ainsdale, a strange creature has been installed today (16 July 2008).

The Superlambanana, Tiger Woods, is sited at the main junction that joins the Temporary Beach Helicopter Landing Pad where the VIP Helicopter will land for the Open Golf and the roads into the Open. Already, as it had just been installed, it has caused quite a stir, with cars pulling up to take photographs on mobile phones. These are a few snaps shortly after his arrival…

13 year old Jutanugarn becomes first girl to win The Junior Open
Report by R&A

MORIYA Jutanugarn, a 13 year old from Thailand, became the first girl to win The Junior Open, The R&A’s biennial 54-hole championship for under-16s. Moriya added a round of 78 in extremely difficult conditions to her opening 72-75 to finish on a nine-over-par total of 225. Moriya, from Bangkok, is a scratch golfer and is the Girls' Champion of Thailand. She had never played golf in Europe before and had not set foot on a links course prior to this week.

Overnight leader Steven Lam of Hong Kong retained the lead with nine holes to play, but had a triple bogey on the 13th to fall behind, and failed to birdie the par-5 closing hole to draw level. 14 year old Jordan Spieth of Texas tied for second with Lam after a birdie at the last and his challenge could have been stronger had he not bogeyed the 11th, 13th and 15th.

"I had a great putt for a birdie that rimmed out at the 17th It was that kind of day for me. Moriya was a little bit lucky to chip in for an 8. If she hadn't done that, we could have had a play-off. But she deserved it. A great little player." said Spieth.
