There’s not a lot that Doug Ferguson, who works for the agency AP (Associated Press), doesn’t know about the world of professional golf.  At Troon, he’ll be covering his 20th Open and his 84th major championship.  A Californian, he’s a fan of the LA Dodgers, exotic Hawaiian shirts (no logos) and shorts (no trousers, or pants as the Americans call them).  Hope it’s not too cold in Ayrshire next week.
