Talk about exciting, I felt like I was watching an Indy 500 race and was waiting for an accident to happen at anytime.

The weather is always the big story from the “OPEN”.

Today was no exception. Driving rain, wind gusts to 40 mph, & a stoppage to squeeze the greens. Amazing stuff!

Jordan Spieth was one of 6 players who broke par today. He admitted that his -1 under par was a very good round in this inclement weather.

Matt Kuchar finished early, thank goodness, and was leader in the clubhouse for quite a while at -4 under par.

I think it helped Jordan to keep plugging hard to keep ahead of him. At one point I believe there were 6 players tied at the top.

Ian Poulter played great with an even par 70 today. He is tied for 3rd place only 3 shots out of the lead with Brooks Koepka.

It’s pretty interesting to think that when Matt Kuchar hit his final putt in the hole this morning he would have to wait OVER 24 hours to tee off.

Obviously he will be in the last group with Jordan Spieth.

I was so proud of 2 older work horses……Ernie Els & Zach Johnson are tied for 21st place at 1 over par after 2 rounds. Zach was -4 under today with a spectacular 66.

All the way down thru the top 24 the farthest off the lead is only 8 shots.

That is not an impossible task for the next 2 days. It’s been done before and it will be fun to see if it can happen again.

By the way, we have a tournament being played in Alabama this week, the Barbasol Championship.

Today Chad Collins fired a 30/30=60 WOW! He was put on the 59 watch and palms were getting sweaty as he finished. What a round 11 birdies and 7 pars.

This boy was on fire. He does have a 5 shot lead.

My hats off to my boy Richy Werenski who is in 6th place at -8 under par. I’ve watched Richy since he won the big break and he is the real deal!!

Have fun tomorrow! I know I will!!!
