Hey! Poulter seems to be feeling an old spark... It would be really cool to see him win it.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...

Watched the first pair set off this morning. One of the club professionals out as a marker for Shaun Norris. The club pro spanked a beautiful tee shot down the first on what must have been a very stressful situation. His caddy was however carrying a mizuno staff bag, so, maybe no surprise that he hit a good one off the tee ;)

Birkdale looks a fantastic course but i think they set the course up too soft for an Open championship, we've seen a lot of players playing from the rough and still hitting the greens without too much of a problem. Quite a few players have played for the rough on purpose to avoid bunkers or to give them a better line in knowing that it won't cause them any problems with it being thin and whispy. On a links course the protection should be the weather/wind, the bunkers, the rough along with the firm, fast greens. 

The course has looked fantastic but for me it's not been as punishing to bad shots as it should be for an Open championship, i'm sure people will have different views, those are just my own.

We were talking about whether Kooooooooch could win today. If he does, I feel it sets up his career for a very good chance at the hall of fame.

Totally agree with this. Spieth has played some garbage and gotten away with it due to easy lies.

It takes a bit of luck to win any tournament, but when you play 5 under on the last 5 holes, to win by 3 shots, it means nobody played as well as you anyway.

He wouldn't have been -5 on the course I played. And he'd have about three less balls in his bag
