Millar all alone at wet, windy Open Championship


SANDWICH, England – At first, it seemed Matthew Millar had been dealt a rough hand when the third-round groupings were decided at the British Open.

He didn’t mind, though. He was used to it.

Millar has spent the last few months playing all alone in freezing, windy conditions in his home city of Canberra, preparing himself for what possibly lay ahead at his first major.

In increasing rain and gusts upward of 30 mph, Millar shot a 10-over 80 on Saturday.

He says “I’ve been practicing in this but this place is something else.”
