Unknown Shibuno Takes British Open

Himako Shibuno

Shibuno Just Hoped to Make British Open Cut This was the British Open the way it should be. It was possibly the most fun I have had in years watching. Somebody had to win, and somebody had to lose, but I didn’t. The level of golf among the top five contenders was so good that …
