When Roy was in the fairway on 18 going on about immortality and no one getting to -10 in the Open ever, not even Nicklaus?

Those were the days....

In those days, one could also toe (a bit) a seven iron over 220.  not to mention the fact that Nash Bridges could hit punch one even farther with God-awful mechanics.  The game hasn't changed that much . . .

Oddly enough, Gil Morgan took it to -12 at one point four years before the movie came out.

In the film, McAvoy says no one has "finished" at -10 so they are safe in ignoring Morgan getting to -12.

If that were possible, I am pretty sure that Greg Norman would have done in a major at some point.
