I'm watching and it's enjoyable.

Sadly, and I think this every time the Tour is off the British Isles, no one seems interested and the atmosphere is non existent. Nice golf, nice views, nice courses, no fans or atmosphere.

I'm starting to think the only reason we run these events is so that we can rustle up a half decent Ryder Cup team, and you can't play every week at Wentworth

In the coming weeks the Dutch Open, British Masters and Italian Open will have fantastic atmospheres.

Wonder how much Scott Hend gets paid to have DONG-A on his hat?

Scott Hend must love Switzerland.

Yes he has a very good record there but Hend struggles to get over the line. I still like Fitzpatrick he also has a very good record at this tournament, if he closes the gap on Saturday and is in good position for Sunday I'd make him favourite.

I was rooting for Hend but I was never convinced he was going to do it.

Congrats to Fitzpatrick, but I would have liked to see the reaction from Mrs Hend if her husband had drained that putt on the 2nd playoff hole.

Shame it was getting too late for me, I missed the last 4 holes and play off. Fitzpatrick seemed on a roll, while Hend couldn't shut the door, can't say I'm surprised by the result.
And regarding the crowds, I would think the Swiss alps are not the easiest destination for golf fans, downhill skiing or curling maybe!

They talked about that on the Scandinavian broadcasting. One of the commentators (Pierre Fulke, a man with a really pleasant voice and good things to say) actually finsihed runner-up in the tournament '94, and has been there multiple times. And even though its in the Alps it's only a reasonably short drive or train ride from big towns like Lausanne and Geneve. A wonderful drive too, according to him.

I was there Saturday and Sunday and agree with you. The only explanation I habe is the weather. It was bitterly cold on both days. I wish they could move the tournament back to July again.
