Should be fun week on an interesting course.  Bit strange to see Rose not bothering, especially with his number 1 ranking at stake, but I guess this doesn't have the standing or prestige of the $audi International and so couldn't find a place in his schedule.  Early betting has JT favourite, interesting to see how he bounces back from a disappointing final round at Riviera.

Sickoflay
I chatted to ref from last Open at St Andrews
Was ref on JB Holmes match
i think it was 5th hole
JB drives ball in to gorse bu**** sitting 4 or 5 feet off ground in gorse bush
He calls for ref
Claiming line of sight due to TV tower some 200 yds down towards green
May also have asked for the 2nd opinion as ref declined
2nd opinion declined..
In seconds he picks up ball and takes a penalty drop
I reckon rules should state that in that instance if free drop declined he should be forced to play it as it lies
Would stop stuff like that with players just chancing it
many tournaments referees bullied by top players..
as i said well done Mike stewart...

in the fritzelli incident  the ref asked the other player (cant remember who) who said straight away it should not be a free drop.  he said "look its nothing to do with me  but i don't think   for one moment that should be a freee drop"   he walked   around  saying he couldn't believe what had taken place

the first 6 holes were crucial

DJ opened the door and was wobbling but Rory just seems incapable of applying any pressure
DJ holed important long putts for pars but they should have been made much more difficult by Rory.

As for the rulings I don't like the rules, they are open to manipulation. However, imo Rory simply wasn't strong enough either when DJ was getting his ruling or when not asking for a second opinion.
Can you imagine Sevvy or Tiger accepting that-especially with DJ just having got a very similar, favourable ruling?

Mickleson, Fritelli and Grace to name 3 got some ridiculous, recent rulings.
