Disappointing to see Fowler is not defending his title.

He says, as he's going to the olympics he can't go to Scotland.

Steve Stricker is also playing, 4 spots available for the Open.

I'd love to see Russel Knox do well in his home town.

From the European Tour live blog:

 

Commentator: "He has 125 to the front. Pin is on 33. So 168 yards, into the wind, playing about 190" #LinksGolf
 
 
But to be fair, only 2 clubs more seems still reasonable. If you are unlucky, you easily have to take 3 or more clubs more. ;)

Patrick Reed needs to take hill sliding lessons from Phil Mickelson. Funny hearing the applause after advancing the ball, albeit to another awful spot.

The commentator learned the "new math" then.....

I hope the players enjoy the wind

I wonder if he would have been better off setting up for a left-handed shot so he could lean into the hill and make a more active downswing by leaning into the slope a bit (vs. having the slope angle push him out toward the ball with the below the feet lie)?

Conversely, could he have under the rules grounded his butt on the slope and just taken an upper body swing?

Winds expected to gust 30mph this afternoon,the later starters are going to get it.

Luiten played in the afternoon. He said he hit an iron 2 over 300 metres, and on the next hole an iron 2 which got 160 metres. the wind was brutal..

Good rounds from Danny Lee and Matteo Manassero to go 1st and 2nd.

Afternoon starters going out now,scoring is better today.

Watch out for Branden Grace.
