Quite a twit-worthy pairing here in the third round -- Ian Poulter
and defending Open champion Stewart Cink. Poults and Cink are two
of the TOUR's most prolific tweeters. Poulter tweeted he was having
tea and cakes during the wind delay Friday and Cink is carrying a
new Nike bag covered with tweets from his fans. In addition to
tweets and tons of twit-pics, they're both fashionistas.
Today, Poults is in tweety-bird yellow, while Cink is in red.
