Australia’s Marcus Fraser returns to the Open Championship this week, marking his third appearance in the event. Here are his thoughts on playing in what is arguably THE Major in world golf:
Three Australians playing in their first Major this week are making the most of the experience. But for Nick Cullen, Ashley Hall and Aaron Townsend, they’re trying not to be too awestruck along the way.

The Australian OneAsia player may well have to draw deep on that memory if he is to shine in his first-ever Major this week.
