It's day two of the The Open Championship. I sat on the grandstand of the 17th hole today at St. Andrews. Matt Kuchar (-3), Phil Mickelson (-3) and Henrik Stenson (-2) were approaching. Matt ended in the bunker and blasted it out near the grandstand to end up with triple bogey. It was too painful to watch. Even Tom Watson said that in all the years he had played St. Andrews, it was the first time he played with the pin placement on hole 17th being where it was. Matt Kuchar is one of the nicest tour players and I have been rooting for him. He ended the round with even par. The projected cut is +1 and I am hoping Matt is in and able to bounce back this weekend.

"I'm not 40 yet. I know some of you guys think I'm buried. But I'm still here in front of you. I'm not done yet." Tiger Woods - at the Press Conference in The Open Championship144th.
We watched tiger at the range practice his long game and then at the pitch and putt area to hone his short game. Then we followed him as he began his round with Matt Kuchar. Some say it's over for Tiger Woods, others say he can still win another major. One thing for sure is when you watch him up close you know that he still has that passion, that desire, that competitive drive to win.
The last time I saw Darren Clarke was when he won the Open Championship at the Royal St Georges in Sandwich Kent, England. Here he is at the 144th Open Championship in St. Andrews after his practice round. He looks much more fit and lost so much weight.
