Six American star golfers living in 'frat house' for Open Championship week

This seems like a fun way to spend the week.

The Open Championship is on in Royal Troon at the moment, with 156 golfers taking part from all around the world. There is a sizeable US contingent in Scotland competing, and it appears that a sextet of stars have decided to rent a house together for the week.

Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, Zach Johnson, Jimmy Walker and Justin Thomas are staying in what Walker described as a 'little frat house', according to PGA Tour.com.

To ease the nerves of competing in the sport's third Major, the six golfers have been watching movies, playing baseball in their garden and eating American-style food, according to the story.

The set-up doesn't seem to be doing the lads any harm, with none of the Americans worse off than +1, and Thomas currently sitting in second at -5.

Maybe Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington should start rooming together before Majors to get the positive energy flowing.
