Manchester Open Wasn’t What We Hoped

John Elliott, a former PGA Tour member, won the Manchester Open Monday with a score of 66 and the guy for whom I was caddying, Chip Mendela, did not have a good day. After shooting 40 on the front, he followed with a 47 on the back, undone by an 8 on the par-4 13th. If I were him, I’d blame it on the caddie.

If he can take any solace in his 87 it might be the fact that he beat Ivan Lendl—yes, that Ivan Lendl—by one shot.
