Pokemon Go at The Open


For those not in the know Pokemon Go is a smartphone game played by an app that has quickly become a global phenomenon. Virtual characters appear through the app and are caught and collected by confronting and capturing them.

For those in the know journalists have been going around Royal Troon this week and collecting the icons.

Ghastly and Magnemite were found outside the Marine Hotel, Magikarp and Rattata were found in the galleries. Goldeen was lurking by the 17 green and Artucuno by the Railway Hole. Best capture, above, was the rare bird Moltres who was flying above the Postage Stamp short 8th hole.

Well it was a long day. There’s only so much golf you can watch.
