    Now with four Majors in the bank – all coming in the last 23 months – it has surprised the winner at Erin Hills and Shinnecock Hills that he was left out of the promo videos preparing viewers for the year’s third Major. He did have to be alerted of the omission, though.

    ‘We’re amazed that I wasn’t in it,’ he said.

    ‘Just kind of shocked. They’ve had over a year to put it out. So I don’t know. Somebody probably got fired over it… or should be.’

    The World No 1 loves playing angry, and the field might want to have a word with Fox come Sunday night.
