Low scores abound in the first round at St. Andrews. Currently there are 70 players under par. A tie for the lowest round in a major championship by Rory McIlroy was posted, 63. He hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation. For once I made a good fantasy pick with Rory.
Tiger Woods is in the clubhouse with a 67 as well as Sean O’Hair (also on my fantasy team). A note on Tiger: He has left his Scotty Cameron putter in the garage this week and switched to a new Nike Method putter. I guess he read my Nike Method Putter review and decided to make the switch.
John (freaking) Daly posted a 66! There’s something about JD’s and links golf which just works. All that raw talent seems to jive with links style golf. John adjusted his driver down a degree and a half and that seems to be working.
Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood are just starting their rounds and are at even par after two and four holes prespectively.
Many more rounds to go but low scores are the news. Any players who haven’t posted rounds under par have missed out on a big opportunity today.
