The Old Course is definitely at her most generous today. There are 58 players on the storied links right now and only 10 are over par for the day.
Some of the names are surprising. Two-time British Open champion Padraig Harrington is 2 over through three holes, as is the sentimental favorite, Tom Watson, who has won five Claret Jugs but never at St. Andrews.
Tim Clark, who won his first PGA TOUR event earlier this year at THE PLAYERS has played seven holes and is also 2 over. So is the 2001 Open champion, David Duval, who has just made the turn. – Helen Ross
