Vijay Singh, Maybe Not Going to Win the British
For all those that had Vijay Singh in their British Open pool, you can probably go ahead and mail in your cash.
Singh is 11-over through 15 holes, making just five pars all day so far.
He isn't alone, in the Big Names Tanking Department.
Phil Mickelson is eight-over through 11 holes, and Ernie Els just made a triple-bogey on the 14th hole to move to six-over.
Ian Baker-Finch said it so I can't take credit, but 74-75 is about par today, so if you can keep it around two or three over, you'll be money after day one. Like Justin Rose just said after his first round 74, you can't win a golf tournament the first day but you sure can lose it.
