With the 2011 British Open complete, a few things need to be said about it.
One is that it was closer than the winning margin would seem to indicate. Over the final 36 holes, the worst position that Darren Clarke was in was a tie for the lead, and those ties usually didn't last long.
Still, there were a lot of players who were in contention at the halfway point, and some very big name golfers in contention for the majority of the day on Sunday.
So, while the last few holes were played with very little suspense, the majority of the remainder of the tournament was actually quite intriguing.
This tournament is certainly one that will be remembered by all golf fans, but certainly those who have followed golf since the mid-late 1990's or before.
As always, different elements are memorable for different people.
