Mr. Spieth, You're a Wonder

There are three things we could use less of in this life; politicians, lawyers, and weathermen.  Can you believe the golf today at the Open?  If we believed the forecasts, we would have expected lousy weather.

It's too bad we couldn't have had thirty six holes today.  It would have been a shootout.  Now, like a kid at Christmas, I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow.  I'll bet the R&A might have been persuaded to give us thirty six holes today if they'd have known the weather would have cooperated.  

The boys are lighting it up.  And what a great cast; even Paddy Harrington and that Irish amateur, Paul Dunne.  I forecasted DJ or Spieth at the beginning of the week, but suspected Oosthuizen or Branden Grace might steal the jug.  So far, Spieth and Louis are looking great.  DJ, not so much.

Spieth just tied the lead with Dunne.  Mr. Spieth, you're a wonder.  That's what Bobby Jones' caddie once said to him at The Old Course.  If Jordan keeps it up, forget about comparing him to Tiger, we'll be talking Bobby Jones.
