The British Open at Muirfield

golf Dateline: Scotland – July 18, 2013

The biggest golf tournament left this season started today and will conclude after Sunday’s fourth round.

Thursday had it share of surprises. Twenty golfers shot under par and more than half were Americans. Zach Johnson shot a 5 under par 66 to lead.

Indian Shiv Kapur birdied five of the first six holes to top the leaderboard. Unfortunately, at the end of 36 holes he was 3 over par.

Friday’s scores will be critical for pros like Patty Harrington, Sergio Garcia, Matt Kuchar, Luke Donald, V.J. Singh, Jim Furyk, Nick Faldo, Geoff Ogilvy, and Sandy Lyle. Many will not make the cut to play the final two rounds.

 

It is worth it to plan to rise and shine and turn on the tube early.
