Bruno Wang Recaps a Memorable Weekend at the British Open, Featuring an Unforgettable Finish

Bruno Wang, a Fan of Athletic Competition, Hereby Reports to the Public the Experience He and Mrs. Wang Enjoyed by Attending the British Open in England; Bruno Wang Saw a Memorable Tournament Won in Stunning Fashion by Ernie Els; More About Bruno Wang’s Adventures Can Be Found at the URL of http://www.brunowangtaiwan.com

LONDON–(Marketwire/AsiaNet Pakistan – August 1, 2012) – Bruno Wang, a lifelong fan of film, music, anime and of course sporting competitions, has been spending a large amount of time in England and in other parts of the United Kingdom during the summer of 2012. Mr. and Mrs. Wang have spent time at the 2012 London Film and Comic Con, at Wimbledon and they will also be attending the 2012 Summer Olympics that open on Friday. However, Bruno Wang would like to alert the public to his experience of attending the 2012 British Open, otherwise known as The Open Championship.

Mr. and Mrs. Wang were privileged to be able to attend The Open Championship that was held at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in Lancashire, which is located in the northwest portion of the country. There were strong charges at the end, there was another strong performance by Tiger Woods.

However, the 2012 Open Championship will be remembered most of all for the collapse of the leader with four holes to go by Adam Scott. Mr. Scott was looking for his first major championship, and the crowd was rooting for him because he was playing so well. Unfortunately, he bogeyed the last four holes of the tournament to lose the title. It was an emotional scene that included Scott holding back tears as he finished.

While many people felt much in the way of sympathy and empathy for Adam Scott, there was also some cheer present when it was Ernie Els, a long-time crowd favorite, who emerged as the winner. Many people were comparing this tournament to the 1999 British Open, which featured the collapse of Jean Van De Velde, who held a three-stroke lead on the final hole only to lose it with a triple-bogey. Overall, it was an emotional weekend for Bruno Wang in London and he and his wife look forward to a continued summer of memories later this week with the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
