This year - for the first time - ABC/ESPN did not identify the golf tournament as "The British Open" either in on-screen graphics or in verbal descriptions of it. They used "The Open" logo featuring the Claret Jug and had "The Open Championship" on the graphics header.

Sheeesh, it has taken forever and a day for them to call the oldest tournament in the world by its proper name....

As long as people know what your talking about...whats the difference?

Like if Eracer and i had an agreement that "go fvck yourself" ment "Hey, how ya doin?" does it matter that everyone else around me thinks i just told eracer to go fvck himself?

Communication is 100% understanding and 0% actual words used to create that understanding. Call it the aospiuroejwopaciu open for all i care...i know what theyre talking about.

Ok...im done, and eracer...go fvck yourself :D

I'll call it the "British Open" forever.

Me, too. There are two Opens in my book.
