Live from Liverpool…The Royal Liverpool Golf Club…day one of the British Open is in the books! Rory Mcilroy with a round of 66 is in the lead at -6. A beautiful sun filled afternoon in England saw Tiger Woods start off a bit poorly, bogeying his first two holes then rebound to finish with a round of 69, -3 on the day. He also hit a fan in the face with one of his drives off the tee. Still, all in all, not a bad day at all for Tiger in his first major of the year. Tiger won the British Open the last time it was played on this course, that would be in 2006. The Leaderboard after day one looks like this: Mcilroy -6, M. Manassero -5, E. Molinari -4, B. Koepka -4, F. Molinari -4, J. Furyk -4, S. Garcia -4, Adam Scott -4 (current world #1), S. Lowry -4, Rickie Fowler, Tiger Woods and six others, -3. Jordan Spieth is at -1 along with H. Mahan and M. Kuchar. Lefty (Mickelson, last year’s winner) is at +2 after day one. Tomorrow the action continues live at 4:00 am EST (yikes!) but not to worry, there is a replay afterwards that is a bit more favorable to us on the east coast in the USA!
From Lakers land…you all know I am a Lakers fan…still no commitment on hiring Bryon Scott as the new head coach. The rumor mill has him all but hired but no official announcement. Meanwhile, the Lakers off season moves have been hugely disappointing! No Melo, no LeBron and word is Kevin Love will likely stay with the Timberwolves. Meanwhile, Pau Gasol is headed to Chicago. They did acquire Jeremy Lin from the Rockets along with a first round draft choice and also picked up Carlos Boozer. Nice to have Linsanity head to LA but really, Kobe needs some help!!!! Oh well, hopefully it is forthcoming in some fashion and I really like the idea of Bryon Scott as the next head coach!
The big names in tennis will reconvene in August prior to the US Open in NY! First at the Rodgers Cup in Montreal and then in Cincinnati. Gotta love the US Open hard court season!! GO FED!
P.S. Congrats to Kevin Durant (MVP) on winning the Best Male Athlete Award last night at the ESPY Awards in LA. Loved that green jacket!
