Luck of the Draw

Golf is a game that requires skill and a bit of luck.  Nowhere do we see this more than at an Open championship.  Generally the best players find a way to factor in a Major; the cream rising to the top.

But this week at Royal Troon all one has to do is look at the scoreboard to realize that those who were fortunate enough to go out early today had the luck of the draw.  Virtually all the players on top of the leaderboard went out early today.  

Is this fair?  Well, no one ever suggested that golf was fair.  All you can do is the best you can with what you have to work with and try to stay on the right side of the draw and the golfing gods.
