British Open OKs Mobile Device Use at Royal Lytham

Bloody good, we say! According to this post at the PGA’s site the R&A will allow mobile device use at this year’s British Open, aka the Open Championship. According to the PGA post the decision was made “to improve the spectacle and tap into a younger market.”

There’s no need for us to quote the full post but we do like the money quote:

“There is no denying the attachment people feel to their mobile phones both in terms of gathering information and staying in touch with family and friends,” said R&A Chief Executive Peter Dawson.

Indeed. The British Open takes place July 19-22, at the Royal Lytham & St Annes course. If you’re going, check your international data rate plan first.
