On Shooting 80, a Van de Velde Sighting and Why Sergio Might Have It The Best


When I woke up this morning and turned on the HD version of this rainy Thursday in England, Ernie Els was three-over. "Respectable," I thought as I got settled in to check what these guys were going to see the rest of the day.

Well, Els must not have agreed, because the Big Easy went mark of the beast on us from holes 14-16, triple, bogey, double. He went on to shoot a nine-over 80 and basically did the complete opposite of his fellow countryman Retief Goosen.

I don't care what anyone says, people love to root for Jean Van de Velde. The Frenchman that may or may not have struggled at Carnoustie a few years back is even par through eight holes, making one bogey and one birdie. If he could continue this for a day or two, it would at least have people that could care less about a Tiger-less British Open talking about it. "Hey, remember that guy that rolled his pants up at Carnoustie? The dude is leading again!"

Also, the Open Championship goes hand-in-hand with weather conditions, and sometimes you get the best of a year because you landed the best draw. Garcia hasn't teed up yet and it appears the weather is becoming a touch easier, which would only benefit El Nino. If he wants the stars to align, they're moving to position, so Garcia needs to go out today and take advantage of this. It is definitely his tournament to win or lose at this point with all the big names falling off.

(Oh, and Kenny Perry is probably the happiest person in the world right now, laughing at this weather as he gets ready to tee it up in his short sleeve shirt and visor out in Milwaukee.)
