Early tee times should prosper

There’s a shroud of gray over the Old Course Thursday morning but so far, the wet stuff has been reduced to a wee mist and the wind is calm. Heavier rain is expected – accompanied by thunder – as the day progresses and the gusts may kick up to 25 mph.

Those players with early tee times likely will be the fortunate ones today. Just ask John Daly, who made the turn at 5 under, and Marcel Siem and John Senden, who are two strokes behind through 12 holes.

Friday’s forecast calls for heavy rain in the morning with possible sunny spells in the afternoon when the winds blow from the southwest at 15-20 mph. The weekend forecast offers a little relief with periods of dry weather mixed with light rain.

We knew the sunshine that bathed the Old Course earlier in the week couldn’t last. It is the British Open, after all. – Helen Ross
