Haven't seen any today but every round looks like an ordeal for him. When you're having no fun you'll never play well.

He has, but he grew up playing links courses, surely he hasn't forgotten how to play them? Just a bad round I guess.

He shouldnt have forgotten, but it is hard to adapt. Having said that there isnt much margin for error, the rough is brutal

How's Martin Laird doing? I have 2€ on him at 101/1, even though I've never heard of him before in my life. Or any other golf player (apart from Tiger Woods) for that matter. Or even watched golf in my life. Am I getting the cash?

Which makes him pretty average no, hence him being a 100/1 shot .

Westwood looks pumped up for this. Go on Lee!

If Woods only takes Bogey on this first hole then he'll be thirlled.

Nick Faldo scored the same as Rory today...................

Rory needs to go away and sort out all the issues he has away from golf be it his missus, moving to the US or his change in management, then come back and focus on the game.

+8 ffs

Woods in at -2 positioned nicely.

Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Hanson both pulled out.

Poulter and Mickelson having a moan.

Quote:
Ian Poulter and Phil Mickelson have criticised Open organisers for making Muirfield almost "unplayable".

The Scottish links, already firm from the recent warm spell, was playing even faster in the hot sun and drying wind of Thursday's first round.

Poulter, who carded a one-over 72, said some of the pin positions were a "joke" and the 18th needed a "windmill and a clown face", like a crazy golf course.

Mickelson hopes organisers the R&A "let go of their ego" after he shot a 69.

But Peter Dawson, chief executive of the R&A, said the course was difficult but not impossible.

And veteran BBC commentator Peter Alliss accused Poulter of "childish" comments.

"It's not what anybody wants to hear," he said. "I think they are very foolish to express their views like that. They all talk about links golf and how wonderful it is to come here and play on the course.

"Mickelson went round in 69 and is very much in the hunt and Poulter is only one over. You could say it is better to criticise when you have made a good score than it is when you have done a bad score.

"Poulter's remarks are just childish. You can't say stuff about windmills and clown's faces. It's just ridiculous. I never heard Jack Nicklaus or Arnold Palmer come out with comments like that.

"A lot of others give up before they even get going. It's a PhD not an O-level."

Ryder Cup team-mate Lee Westwood laughed off Poulter's comments, telling the BBC: "He's always moaning, 'Poults', you can't pay too much attention to him."

Mickelson, among the morning starters with Poulter, signed for a two-under-par round but said: "Hopefully they (the R&A) will let go of their ego and set it up reasonable, but you just never know."

Dawson responded: "We're conscious of player comments and have taken note as we plan how to set up the greens [on Friday].

"I do understand some players get frustrated. Ian Poulter bogeyed four of the last five holes - he was bound to get frustrated. It's a very testing, tough Open championship. It is far from unplayable."

Four-time major winner Mickelson claimed the later starters would face an impossible task because of the conditions.

"I got very lucky to play early today because as the day wore on and we got to the back nine, about a third of every green started to die and became brown," said the American, who is yet to win the Open but was second in 2011 and won last week's Scottish Open at Castle Stuart, another links course.

"The pins were very edgy too, on slopes and what. The guys that played early had a huge, huge break because even without any wind here it's beyond difficult.

"Playing early gave us a fighting chance. I love the fact I shot under par because it's a very challenging course. I don't expect anyone to beat the lead from the morning wave, I just don't think it's possible."

Speaking before the tournament, England's Tony Jacklin, the 1969 Open champion, said the key was to be patient and deal with adversity.

"You can get the worst of the weather or the best of it," he told BBC Sport. "Many championships have been won and lost like that. You have to accept your lot. If it's windy in the afternoon after being calm all morning when the course was four shots easier, you've got to suck it up. You're not going to get anywhere feeling sorry for yourself."

Late starter Shiv Kapur of India appeared ready to prove Mickelson's theory wrong when he moved ahead of clubhouse leader Zach Johnson to reach six under after seven but he fell back to three under at the end.

And American veteran Mark O'Meara, the 1998 champion, denied conditions were unfair after returning a 67 in the afternoon to finish as one of only 20 players to card an under-par score.

"You have to be cautious on the greens and be aggressive, but not too aggressive," he said.

"I don't think the pin positions are unfair. If the wind had got up to 30mph then fair enough, but the wind wasn't blowing that hard. I've played in 25-plus Open championships and I've seen conditions far worse."

I see Poulter was not too happy with the speed of the greens and challenging pin positions claiming, "all the 17th green lacked was a massive clown face and a windmill.
"


Golf humour

They just slowed a slo-mo of the way that Bubba moves the ball in the air. It looked like a total shank at first, then the draw he got on the ball was insane. A thing of beauty. He's pretty unique that guy, it's just shame he seems to be such a xenophobic bellend.

McIlroy bogies the first, then looks like he'll drop a shot at the 2nd too. Appalling.

I think Westwood (clubhouse leader at -2) is going to be joint leader of this by the end of the day. They're dropping shots badly out there.

Woods & Westwood must have loved watching that unfold. The entire field coming back to them and now they are 1 off the lead.

You look at that leaderboard and you think that Tiger could take it today. If he makes a move how many of them players can live with it?

Haha! There are a lot of players currently around the top of that leaderboard that I really can't see staying there. I'd usually say Westwood was one of them but he's putting seems to have improved a lot.

Early starters will probably be the only ones shooting lowish again - so it could be a totally different make up at the end of the day.
