Team orders v individual assertion; that is the story of F1 and this year’s Tour de France.

Egan Behgal of the Ineos team could have won on Saturday but he is the domestique to team leader Geraint Thomas. Chris Froomee was the same to Bradley Wiggins and Thomas to Froome. Now its Beghal’s turn.

Thomas looks shoot but Bhegal is in the top five and neither yellow jersey leader Julian AlaPhilippe nor Thinbault Pinot have such team support. All brewing up for a fascinating last few days in the Alps and Pargie says the smart Monet is on Thomas.

Shane Lowry had no problems negotiating the final round of the Open and winning the claret jug in Ireland as an Irishman. Good luck to him.

The country of 6m had now produced 4 major winners in Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke , Pod Harrington and Shane Lowry.

It was a challenging tournament as almost every shot was on a uneven lie. The weather conditions did not help either and it was a true test of golf.
