Open is hard to stomach for Faldo
Sunday 17 July 2005
"I felt lousy as last night's dinner decided to go south," he said. "I was not expecting 70 at all as I was on about 50% power. So I am really pleased. "I was always going to battle on, though. "It is the Open and I have a couple of weeks off after it, so I am draining the energy batteries to the limit."
Faldo admitted the days of winning the Open have gone. "Fifteen years ago I was in the flow," he said. "I was just here to play golf and nothing else. "There were no problems I had to think about. "Everything was easy. There wasn't a problem. "Now I have got to think about it. Mentally I am shot. "But I am out there playing because I still love it. You just want to hit the best possible shot." end
