Tim, he's the Open Champion, not the British Open Champion.

Why is it that you Americans find this so hard to understand?

Our athletic directors constantly mispronounce names of students at athletic assemblies. Something about the arrogance of people in charge; they have no idea that they are fallible.

Dave, I love getting into this with you Brits.

It's the "British Open" to Americans and will remain that way.

Ahhhh, good ole American arrogance! And we wonder why the rest of the world hates us.

Yeah, I know that mate. But the R&A call it The Open Championship; the name is copyrighted to them, it's on all their logos, etc. There is no tournament officially called the 'British Open.' So, being a knowledgeable golfer, can't you set an example and call it by its real name?

I'm sure you're not too fond of people saying 'the U.S. Masters.'

Dave, I've resisted calling the British Open the Open for years -- mainly just to tweak the British who get so serious about such things -- but you make the first good argument I've encountered.

Not that I care that much about what they call the Masters, but you have a point.

Still, I haven't decided for good.

Shanks, your argument is the same old baloney.
