    Re: Interesting Leaderboard after Day1 at British Open

    Wind is GUSTING there today.

    I'm getting a kick out of watching everyone's pants look like a damn flag.

    Nothing says "I'm playing in The British Open" like hitting everything you've got into a 40+ mph wind.

    Yep, those conditions are brutal. Great if you're Anthony Kim or Ben Curtis. It's going to be anyone's game tomorrow.

    Norman seems to be handling the "brutal" conditions okay.

    In other news Michelle Wie is leading the State Farm classic on the LPGA tour.
    She may never be as good as she once was hyped to be, but hopefully the days of her regularly threatening to put up numbers that would make John Daly blush are over.

    I think 4 or 5 over will win it. With that being said, I don't think anybody close to Norman will shoot par or better. So if Norman can shoot 2 or 3 over par, he should win it. Does he have one more good round left in him or will it be another Norman sunday meltdown? I can't wait! I'm rootin' for Norman.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Congrats to Padraig on winning the British, back to back.

    I was rooting for pink pants Poulter, but I was happy to see Harrington win back to back.

    I would have lost money betting he'd go 4 under on the back to win by 4.

    As for Norman, what can I say? He had 3 solid rounds, and then he and his caddie couldn't figure out a way to keep the driver in the bag today, and I lost count of how many bunkers he found off the tee.

    I really wanted Norman to win. You're right about the driver. What were they thinking? Pi**-poor course management, especially when he was nervous as all get-out and pulling most of his shots.

    Padraig was solid. Very boring to watch but he's a really good guy. I don't mind him winning at all.

    If only Anthony Kim could have putted....

    IMO, he hit it the best of anyone the whole week.

    Yep, that back nine he turned in put me to sleep.
