Doing well at the moment but his putting stroke is not a thing of beauty.

I was watching Bradley yesterday, and his swing, posture etc is horrible. Worked yesterday though.

Actually I will yield to this. Keegan the most inelegant player around.

A bit of rain but nothing too serious. Phil still wrapped up like he is on an arctic expedition.

Isn't it beginning to look like the stronger winds will only really affect the later starters, and then only later in their rounds? Looks pretty benign at the moment.

Excellent from guys like Kjeldsen and other "Europeans" doing nicely, but British golfers largely doing a Brexit. Especially surprised at Andy Sullivan.

Just heard him interviewed on SKY, doesn't take things too seriously and I can understand why he's so popular. No beef for him today though, 'Caesar Salad' he says!

Keegan Bradley's gone back to the clubs he was playing with when he was twelve. He obviously thought the long putter ruling applied to all of his clubs!!

Yeah, coz a set of Galvin Greens and some waterproof spiked shoes would be a Poopie idea at the Open today!

(NB - I agree with you in general and I know what you mean but couldn't resist!)

Why would you need spiked shoes? You aren't on the course, you're walking on flat ground and sitting in stands.
No need for golf shoes.

Anyway, I was talking more about the FKW's who wear their polo shirts, white belt, glove hanging out the back, cap etc.

It looks like Howler, Westwood and the rest of the +2's will play the weekend.


Just think where Beef would be without his 7's, doubt even McLaren would have shrugged them off so successfully. (But never underestimate Mac . . . . . )

He probably relished peppering the flag, ball with a bit of mustard on it. Everyone else playing ketchup.


The +2's look good to go for Saturday, but what about the +3's? Could happen with the wee breeze picking up and, among others, self-admitted frat boys Spieth & Thomas sliding down the leaderboard.

Yes even Keegan Bradley managing T3 (albeit in calmer conditions) despite his convoluted swing, stooping over so much that he looks like he's playing with a junior set of clubs.

The 11th hole is close to what I think is the epitome of a horribly designed golf hole.

Forced Carry & Blind Tee shot where fore-caddies are needed to locate golf balls that don't hit the fairway.

My favourite Par-4 anywhere has a blind tee-shot and a forced-carry second shot.

+3's just about to cash in; not much chance for the +4's which means the likes of Bubba and Danny Willett might get the weekend off..

Any place we would know?

I don't like blind shots or forced carries but they are somewhat tolerable if they are not parlayed together.

GPB,
8th hole at PB. I reckon it's the best Pa4-4 in golf. To play anyway.

I think they will Alci!

Remarkable round so far from Steve Stricker: 14 straight pars, then a snowman on the 15th. Not the only one there, I'm sure.

Folks around here call that snowman a "Double par" so I figured Stricker made 19 pars today.

Didn't some smart arse say a shot is only blind once? Anyway, disagree that blind shots are bad design, nothing wrong with using blind shots to introduce a sense of adventure every now and again.

McIlroy apparently low man for the afternoon wave and two of his dropped shots had nothing to do with the weather. He may regret switching off for that 30 min period just after the turn.
