Episode 911: US Murph’s Wave, British Open Preview, Neymar Eyes Pay-Day
It’s ten years since Padraig Harrington won his first British Open, and 9 years since he hit one of the best shots in Open history to retain his title at Birkdale, which hosts the event from tomorrow morning.
We talk to golf writer and author Lawrence Donegan about his chances of winning a third Claret Jug, and also if Rory McIlroy has it in him to produce a trademark, from-nowhere win this weekend.
Having seen Rory McIlroy’s demeanour and golf when in a proper slump pre-Open (2013)… incomparable to now.

US Murph has been enjoying the fruits of his celebrity lifestyle, and he tells us about the extraordinary life of his new golf partner Marcus Allen, one of the most decorated players in NFL and college football history, a former pal of OJ Simpson, and enemy of the most infamous owner in US sport.
Ken tells us why he thinks Neymar should ask Alain Giresse if it’s a good idea to move to Ligue 1, we hear from Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube, and Paulie Malignaggi appears to have had a Damascene conversion on the road to Conor McGregor’s bank account.
