2nd Day at the Open at St Andrews

So it's all change on day 2 with lots going on and a lot of players being affected by the change in the weather. There was an hour's break in play in the afternoon when the wind just got too much and the course was deemed unplayable with balls being blown on the greens.

Louis Oosthuizen took the lead away from Rory McIlroy as he played off early before the wind hit and McIlroy got sidetracked by the swirling wind and is currently struggling on 7 over for the day. There are plenty of players still in it including Tiger Woods - who knows what might happen with the weather tomorrow?!

The Open Starts Today!

So, I'm watching the first day of the open and the thing that hits me most I have to say is the fashion!! There are some guys out there in some very bright colours just to add a bit of a dash to the slightly dour Scottish weather. John Daly is in a mixture of blue and pink with purple paisley trousers, Tiger Woods has a bright purple/pink top on, of course there are the usual mixes of greys, blacks and blues too but for those who want to stand out and make a statement they are really going for it and looking pretty good for the most part!

Also loving Peter Alliss' commentary on BBC2, the man is a legend!
