  1. Can anyone advise whether a free-to-air network had the rights to show the Open but have declined to do it ? If so,why not show it if they already paid for the rights ? Golf in this country is being treated as a second class citizen these days. You get live cricket and tennis. Why not the golf ?

  2. Channel Nine were the traditional broadcasters of this event but in recent years have shown no inclination whatsoever to cover it.
