A peek inside issue 165 of bunkered

Issue 165 Main

As Open Championships go, this year’s edition had almost everything: a magnificent course; a little bit of everything in terms of the weather; an unforgettable, dramatic final round; a worthy winner in Francesco Molinari.

And that’s to say nothing of the return of Tiger Woods.

Playing in his first Open since St Andrews in 2015, the three-time champion held the outright lead for a short spell in the final round, prompting much excitement.

Make no mistake: Tiger Woods is back.

That’s why we’ve put him on the front cover of our latest edition.

Here’s a peek at some of the stuff you’ll find inside it…
