It was wicked weather. Imagine that you are inside a refrigerator with 30-35mph howling winds and non- stop rain for 18 holes... That was the weather condition for the bulk of the players at St. George's 2011 Open Championship today. I was in a semi frozen state despite the fact that i was dressed in thermal wear, pullover, water proofs, beanie and gloves. Freezing and wet is an understatement! The winds were gusty and seeking shelter in a links course is not exactly easy. Welcome to British summer!

Rory McIlroy unraveled at the back 9 ending the 3rd day with a 4 over par while Ricky did wonderful at 2 under par considering the weather condition.
Adam Scott who, was celebrating his birthday today, was not spared and dropped a few shots before ending the day at even par.
It was a huge struggle not just for the players but for all the spectators who braved the brutal weather . I must have been standing under the cold and rain for at least 6 hours before i finally saw the sky clear up.
Tomorrow is the final day and the weather forecast is even stronger rains. Lovely!
