5 Great Story Lines from the 2015 British Open


Before the first golfer even teed off at the 2015 British Open, there were some fascinating story lines that added tremendous interest to the eventual outcome. 

Rory McIlroy injury

The golf world on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond was shocked when on July 4th, the world's number one golfer, Rory McIlroy was injured playing football with friends. When the full extent of the injury became known, a total rupture of the anterior ligament in his left ankle, it was obvious that the greatest male player in golf would be unable to compete at the British Open. 

Dustin Johnson near-misses

Dustin Johnson came close to winning the U.S. Open championship at Chambers Bay in June, but missed a heart-breaking 2-foot putt for birdie on the 18th hole which would have tied him for the lead with Jordan Spieth. Coupled with other near misses in his turbulent career, Johnson's mindset and mental toughness were in question coming into the British Open. 

Jordan Spieth grand slam

One of the biggest sources of curiosity about the 2015 British Open was whether or not 21-year old Jordan Spieth could capture the third leg of the Grand Slam of golf, having already won the Masters Tournament in April and the U.S. Open Championship in June. No one has ever won the Grand Slam as it is currently comprised, in a single calendar year.

St. Andrews weather

Before the tournament began, weather experts predicted there would be some harsh weather during the week, when the tournament was scheduled to be played. Strong winds and rain were both called for, and there was much speculation about how the course would be affected, and which players might be best suited to overcome the difficult playing conditions.

Amazing amateur

At the end of the third round, amateur Paul Dunne was tied for the lead, and a colossal shock appeared possible at the British Open. To that point, Dunne was the only player in the field who had recorded three rounds in the 60's, and his game appeared rock solid. 

How these stories played out 

Rory McIlroy did not compete of course, but that did not detract from the excitement provided over the five days of the tournament, which was forcibly extended by the weather. The weather was indeed a factor, causing several stoppages, and pushed the final round into Monday, when calmer conditions prevailed. Dustin Johnson led the tournament for the first two rounds, but faded badly after that, finishing in a tie for 49th place. 

Jordan Spieth seemed assured of at least a playoff until he bogeyed the 17th hole, and finished one stroke behind three players who were forced into a playoff. His dreams of a Grand Slam were dashed on the links of St. Andrews, but Spieth performed admirably nonetheless. Amateur Jordan Niebrugge finished in a tie for 6th place, ahead of all other amateur players, including Paul Dunne who slipped to a final round 78.

Zack Johnson, Marc Leishmann, and Louis Oosthuizen finished in a three-way tie, and Johnson became the tournament winner after besting the other two in a 4-hole playoff.

The excitement and fascination engendered by this year's British Open are feelings that every golfer can experience on the course for himself or herself. Those experiences await everyone at the finest San Diego Golf Course, Riverwalk Golf Course. Give yourself the opportunity to experience the same thrills as the pros by reserving a tee time now at

Riverwalk Golf Club Launches “Pace of Play”

In an effort to improve the overall Riverwalk golfing experience, we've introduced Pace of Play Pledges for both golfers and Riverwalk staff.

We will work diligently to enforce the various pledges and educate new and existing members about Pace of Play in an effort to reinforce an excellent golf experience for all.
          
Golfer Pledges


As Riverwalk golfers, we want you to feel empowered to take part in creating a consistently enjoyable golf experience, and enforce Pace of Play pledges politely while on the course. The various Riverwalk Golfer pledges are as follows:

  • Play ready golf: This pledge is important, as it'll help everyone flow through the course smoothly. This means hitting when you're ready, and putting-out on greens. This also means no “Honors System.”
  • Allow others to play through: When a smaller group is coming up behind you—or if a group is simply faster, allow them to play through. Keeping pace with the group ahead of you will also help ensure larger groups are able to enjoy their time without creating a traffic jam for others
  • Play appropriate tees based on ability, or play it forward: Not every hole is going to be right for every golfer. Golfers may want to tweak their experience based upon their level of ability—for example, skipping holes that may be too easy or difficult. Golfers may also “TEE IT FORWARD”by choosing the best tee box, improving on the pace of play, and creating a more enjoyable round.
  • Educate playing partners on pace of play: We encourage you, as Riverwalk golfers, to educate those playing with you about the Pace of Play pledges.
  • Think ahead: Being prepared for your next shot is essential in keeping up with the pace of play. Be prepared before your next shot, have your club in hand, and be ready to swing!

 Riverwalk Course Pledges

We're dedicated to doing all that we can to ensure the pace of play runs smoothly for everyone. In doing so, we've created a few pledges of our own:

  • Encourage education and awareness on “Play ready golf”: We pledge to dedicate ourselves to improving the experience for Riverwalk golfers, raising awareness about Pace of Play, and educating new and existing golfers and staff members about Pace of Play.
  • Correct course markings: We pledge to ensure that course markings are accurate throughout the course, including markings for lateral hazards, drop zones, and grounds under repair.
  • Educate Staff: From staff ambassadors to beverage cart attendants, all employees are now being trained to act as the eyes and ears of the course. They will participate in upholding the pace of play by acting as golf course monitors.
  • Gimme Grill: Introducing the new Gimme Grill at the turn will help encourage faster food service for all.
  • Add GPS to golf carts: We want everyone to have the best experience possible—and that means equipping our golf carts with GPS navigation systems. With a gorgeous birds-eye view of the entire course, you’ll never get lost looking for a hole again!

Would you like to experience the new pace of play at Riverwalk? We’d be happy to schedule a tee time with you online!
