British Open Update...

Golf is not an easy sport.  The golf course itself are all unique.  At the British Open the PGA players are having a difficult time with the course conditions.  The major complaint is that it is so dry and with the humid weather it is drying out the greens so much making them a lot faster then they were two days ago during their practice round.  You would think these tour players are counting their blessings having sunshine on a golf course.  We all know they have played numerous events with high winds and tons of casual water, but us golfers we are never really satisfied unless its 22 degrees with no wind or bugs!  

Lee Westwood was quoted after his round saying: ““Why not enjoy it out there?”  “It’s tough for everybody. So smile your way through.”

All the pros are batteling their own troubles throughout the course on round two.  Johnson bogeyed three of the first six holes. Phil Mickelson drove into a bunker at the second and took a double-bogey. Brandt Snedeker doubled the 10th. Rafael Cabrera-Bello did the same at the 14th.  It goes to show you how we are all human we cant all be expected to play perfect everyday.

Looking forward to the final two rounds of the British Open.  I am defiantly happy that Tiger is in the hunt….
