Should move the Open to October and let the pros play it in 30mph winds and rain falling upwards. 😉 Looks like the cut could be as low as - 3 if the conditions stay benign. Can Rory avoid his usual hiccup on a Friday and shoot another 65?

Cant Judge what the weather will do so far in advance.

Sometimes the weather changes through the day and it really effects the score one day to the next

Mc Ilroy round one here in 2010 shot 63, next day by the luck of the draw the conditions were tough and he had an 80

though it looks like it would be quite mild today

Sadly think Tiger is about as likely to win another major now as Andy Murray is to win another slam. As fairytale as it'd be, the body just isn't where it needs to be to compete anymore.
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

It was great to see Els doing well yesterday, always been one of my favourite players with the smoothest swing in the game.

Met him once at Wentworth, nice fella.

Not entirely sure how much rain they had overnight but the course does look a touch softer and the early starters have taken advantage. The wind might pick up a touch throughout the afternoon and it should warm up so the late starters might not have the joy of slightly softer greens.

Looking at him limp and compromised swing, I don't think his body will hold up in any 4-day competition. Not today and not 5 years later as his body has taken too much damage.

I think he knows and that brought out all the emotions.

Looking like it will be a great weekend of golf as some top class players contending and could take - 18 or better to win the Open. Who's nerves will stand the pressure best?

Couldnít agree more.

They are making a mockery of this course under this benign condition. This must be the most un-British Open golf I have seen.

McIlroy has putted much better than Iíve seen for a while but my word he still misses some silly ones.

Bit of a dabbler with the golf here. Usually pretty difficult to pick a winner. Fancied Cameron Smith before round 1. Couple of shots off the lead now. Here's him in a different universe as an Aussie rules player.

Different but related matter. Absolutely love Henni Koyack on Sky Sports Golf. Really nice vibe for a casual viewer like myself.
The fans here are the greatest in the land. They know the game and they know what they want to see. The people on the Kop make you feel great - yet humble. I'm just one of the people...

The way Hovland and Rory are feeding off each other they could basically eliminate everyone but the top 5 from the running tomorrow. Ten under for both of them after 10 holes. Great golf.
