Cheat Sheet: What you need to know for Saturday in golf

Mahan hunting down the Canadian Open
At the British Open last week, Hunter Mahan shot 68 in the third round and played his way into the final group at Muirfield. This week, he shot an eight-under 64 in the second round, which included six birdies in seven holes.
It’s still early, so who knows if he’s going to win, but if one thing is for sure: Mahan’s consistency this season has been pretty breathtaking. In 19 events he’s made 16 cuts, finished in the Top-25 12 times, and has been in the final group after 54-holes in two consecutive majors. He’s still looking for his first win of the season, but if he continues doing what he’s doing, he won’t be waiting for much longer.

Ball strikers vs. scramblers at the Senior British Open
There’s a mighty brawl unfolding at the British Senior Open this week. Among those in the Top 5 after 36-holes is Bernhard Langer, who’s averaging 14 greens each round of this tournament, and Gene Sauers, who’s averaging 15. They’re joined by David Frost, Mark Wiebe and Mark McNulty who are averaging 10, 10.5 and 11 greens respectively. That may sound like a lot, but it’s not by tour standards, so what we’re about to witness at Royal Birkdale is a case study of scramblers vs. ball strikers under major championship conditions. Buckle your seatbelts.

Shinnecock Hills member-guest features four aces in one day

By Cliff Schrock

The member-guest, that peculiar blend of honest hard-liners and crafty edge-seekers, usually produces clubhouse banter about which team was able to follow a competitive game plan better than all the rest. But in the first round of the Presidents Invitational Member-Guest at Long Island’s venerable Shinnecock Hills Friday, July 19, all that strategizing took a backseat to some honest-to-goodness on-course fireworks. The club had some celebrating to do.

Saltman suffers hackers’ curse as first hole bares its teeth (Reuters)

By Martyn Herman GULLANE, Scotland (Reuters) – Sunday morning hackers know the feeling well. You step on the first tee and duff your first tee shot out of bounds, then take another ball and do exactly the same. Scotland’s Lloyd Saltman did just that at Muirfield on Thursday when he began his British Open challenge with a first-hole horror show which ended with an ugly quadruple-bogey eight. Saltman, who grew up just down the road in Edinburgh and knows the local links courses well, was part of the first group to tee off in almost perfect conditions. …

By Martyn Herman GULLANE, Scotland (Reuters) – The 142nd British Open began in horrendous circumstances for Scotland’s Lloyd Saltman at Muirfield on Thursday as the local man endured the kind of start that would even make a Sunday hacker weep. Playing in the first group along with experienced Australian Peter Senior and Englishman Oliver Fisher, Saltman needed not one, not two, but three tee shots on the par-four opener, eventually carding a quadruple-bogey eight after straying out of bounds twice. …
