Open-and-shut case

 

Sir, – The chief executive of the R&A (Royal and Ancient) has described the old BBC coverage of the British Open as “tired” and “outdated” (Sport, July 19). Given televised golf’s soporific power, how very apposite that such views should be uttered by a person called Martin Slumbers. – Yours, etc,

PAUL DELANEY,

Dalkey, Co Dublin.
