Ousthuisen not showing signs of fading early Sunday at the Open Championship

Morning coffee, and a headache for me today.  I spent too much time out in the sun and the 100 degree temps yesterday.  I played in a city amateur, then hiked several miles in the local mountains.  I have mild heat stroke.

After four holes Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa isn’t showing any signs of folding. Typically in major championships, players who are in his position tend to melt down. But Louis is looking good. He’s sitting on a five shot lead and nobody in the field is making any kind of run at him. Oosthuizen is leading in nearly every important statistical category.

Tiger Woods (currently tied for 27th) will be on his private jet on the way home before Oosthuizen finishes his round.

Phil Mickelson, who doesn’t typically play well in the (British) Open Championship is 13 shots back after 14 holes.

Paul Casey is in the final group and is five shots back. He’s +1 on the day.

Barring a nuclear meltdown, Ousthuisen will become a household name. I’ve already added him to the HOG tag list, which means he’s made the big time. But this is the Open and conditions are tough. Anything can happen.
