There are meals in your life you will never forget. Meals you will tell your grandkids about. Last night was one of them. I had dinner with someone I’ve admired for a long long time. And she did not disappoint. Witty and whip smart, she had a twinkle in her eye the whole night. We sipped champagne, savored our gazpacho and crab and talked of India in the 80’s and so much more.

Shane Lowry wins British Open in celebrated return to Emerald Isle; Utah’s Tony Finau finishes third

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) — The long-awaited return of the British Open to Northern Ireland ended with Shane Lowry keeping the silver claret jug on the Emerald Isle.

Even as the rain stopped, the tears began flowing.

Lowry, the 32-year-old Irishman with stout nerves and a soft touch around the greens, endured the worst weather of the week and the Sunday pressure of a sellout crowd cheering him along to win the British Open by six shots.

Ultimately, the outcome was never in doubt. No one got closer than three shots all day.

Salt Lake City native and Lehi resident Tony Finau shot even-par for his final round to move up to third place, one shot above Brooks Koepka.

Fleetwood had to settle for his second runner-up …read more
