I had a great day walking the course and following several of the Nike Golf athletes including Tiger Woods, David Duval, Justin Leonard, Paul Casey, Stephen Ames, Charl Schwartzel, James Morrison and Simon Dyson. Today I wasn’t able to catch up with Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Pablo Martin, Francesco Molinari or Trevor Immelman. It was amazing as always to see the throngs of people following Tiger, it was great to hear so many people rooting for David Duval and it was fun to see Paul Casey at the top of the leaderboard and playing well.
Alas, I head back to Phoenix tomorrow after an early morning round of golf, so I’ll be watching the rest of the Open on TV. But if today was any indication, the course will play tough and the field will hard pressed to break par this weekend. We’ll have to see if a Nike athlete is able to make it to the top of the leaderboard – and stay there – on Sunday afternoon.
