The state of English Golf

It's the Open Championship, being held in Kent at Royal St. George's, Sandwich. Before the competition much was made of the resurgence of English golf with Poulter, Casey, Rose, Donald, the world number one, and Westwood, the world number two, being suggested as possible winners.

After round two the leading Englishman is an amateur, Tom Lewis, with the pride of English golf missing the cut. Even the Americans are playing well on a links course that should favour the home-grown players. What is it about the English that, apart from in war, they never really perform when the chips are down? Or should we be grateful for that small mercy?
