Fox's stream was great this morning, but it's been super choppy since about noon mountain time. Really annoying.

Things like this could also be your ISP.

Good LSW clinic on hole 4.

Day and Rose lay up with 3-wood, then hit 6-irons over the green into the rough. Rose chips over the green, chips, back makes bogey. Day fluffs it, twice, triple-bogey.

Rory takes driver to carry the fairway bunker, end up in the rough 130 out, just catches the front bunker. Bunker shot to 1' for par.

Kevin Na in with a -4.  Did you take the over or under on the number of unplayable lies he'd have today?

In where?
I see him at -3 after his first 9 holes (he is playing the back 9 first) - good to see him make some noise on the course after making that noise about the course.

Oh, I saw him with that great chip at #18 and thought he teed off at #1.  I should have checked the clock.

Does anyone else think that Mike Davis is plotting with tee locations and pin positions to toughen the course; and maybe seeing if the folks running the HAARP project and chemtrail airlines can adjust the weather to allow this to dry out and gather up some wind?

You don't want to know. Left pin on 14 diabolical, (its middle right today), front tee on 18 may be used depending on wind.  15 has a forward tee to make it drivable. As does number 2.

I honestly don't think Davis is obsessed with toughening the course. If he wanted to really toughen this Open, he would have made it a par-70 and narrowed the fairways some. He made 6 or 7 very gettable holes, which is high for a U.S. Open. I think Davis' intention was to let the weather dictate this U.S. Open. If the wind doesn't blow and the rain comes, guys will go low like they did today. If it hardens and the wind blows, scores will come back closer to Even. If the weather forecast pans out, the course should start to harden tomorrow and the wind is supposed to blow pretty good on Sunday, despite some rain on Saturday. In the end, I don't think you'll see a ton of guys break par, especially if the wind blows really hard Sunday like they're saying it may.

All that being said, I am a bit surprised at how many guys are going low today. It's definitely not U.S. Open-like at all.

I also think the leaderboard shows the state of the game right now. Some may like it, some may not. The Players was very similar. A lot of parity going on. 42 guys under par and only one of them is ranked in the top 18 in the world.

Jason Day really struggling. That triple on 4 was really bad, and he's spraying it a bit right now. I think he's about to chip out of the fescue into a bunker. Not great, Bob.

EDIT: he chipped into a bunker, but still couldn't get to the green with his next shot.

Its just ugly watching rory and jason day right now in the "featured" group.  

  Leaderboard is fine with me.  Fowler leading.  Reed, snedeker, koepka, na,casey,  holmes, hoffman, garcia, johnson etc....tons of good players under par and in position.

After watching Jason Day today, my big takeaway that I will carry with me every round I play is that you can still shoot an 80 after your second triple bogey. 

Usually by my second triple I give up on even having a shot to break 100. Of course I'm usually walking up to the third tee box after my second triple :-D

Yeah but you said this before Rory and Jason kept hitting driver into the fescue and sinking there chances. I have to admit  felt the long hitters would be favored but its exact opposite. The shorter hitters are doing well.

I want Rickie to win.

I'm  with you. I took a while to warm to him, but as he has matured I've become a fan.

Danny Willett has really gone the wrong way since winning his green jacket last year. Dead last place right now. Hopefully this is rock bottom for him and he can bounce back and not go to the graveyard of players whose careers collapsed after winning a major championship.

Didn't realize he was something special before he won...

    • Happily their tests came back negative.   They have to do another one later this week so they can go back to school the following Monday, but glad they were negative.  I hope the kid who was their close contact has a mild case and is back soon too.   
    • Why? If you hit ‘this number’ club ‘that many’ yards…it’s just an identifier right? 
    • That is a great golf course.  Played it, along with its sister course, true blue this past summer.
    • Shot 79, 14 GIR/nGIR, 26 putts, 2 penalty strokes. Both penalty strokes came on the back 9, and were just bad swings. In both cases, I stood over the ball too long, and should have backed off and reset, instead of making an uncomfortable swing. Didn't have my A game with full swing today, but except for the two penalty strokes from hitting into red-staked penalty area, I was keeping the ball in play, and advancing the ball decently. Short game was pretty good except one hole where it took 3 pitches to get on the green. The first two were out of awful lies, so I have a little pre-baked excuse for that one at least. Putting was really solid today, especially considering the greens were aerated, sanded, and unmown. Strokes gained vs. 5 HCP: Tee: -2.05 Approach: -2.80 Short Game: -1.64 Putting: +1.03
    • Day 50: Played 18 this morning. Overnight rain made the course a little sloppy. Fairways were wet and hadn't been mowed, and greens were punched, sanded, and also unmowed. Didn't have my best swing, but made it work for the round, and scored pretty well.
