I only got the chance to play nine holes while I was in Scotland, but it was a great nine at the Castle Course, the seventh and newest track of the St. Andrews Links Trust. While purists gripe that the course is an abomination because of the artificial dunes and the tricked-up greens (to my understanding), I thought it was charmingly quirky (because I’m used to playing those types of courses in the States, I guess) and you can’t beat the dramatic views of the ocean and the St. Andrews skyline.

Just have a look for yourself (click on the images to enlarge).

Alright, the Wall Stret Journal live-blog has still been happening this weekend. What? You didn’t know? Because you aren’t watching the British Open? Or you aren’t on the computer procrastinating at work and you’re actually watching it? That makes no sense. Okay, well, let’s try to make the final nine holes are so at least a little exciting.

Is Oosthuizen slipping? He just missed a par putt. Gasp! Is Casey making a run? Will it be enough? Or are a bunch of guys just playing for second? Let’s find out. Go to live-blog here.

By the time you read this, the 30 players, who hadn’t finished their rounds when play was called at 9:45 last night, will have teed it back up at 6:30, less than nine hours after they walked off the golf course. The cut line currently is at +1 with three guys at +1 yet to finish their rounds (Jason Day, Mark O’Meara and US Open runner-up Gregory Havret).  It’s supposed to be calm in the morning (per usual) and become increasingly windier as the day goes on, but the gusts are expected to stay within reason — you know, 30-35mph gales instead of 45mph!

As he walked up the 18th green, his shoulders were slumped and his head down. Who could blame him? Rory McIlroy, who tied a record with a 63 in the first round, had been throttled by the Old Lady. He was about to post an 80. We all believed he would go low on Friday, but Mother Nature had other plans. Still, much respect to Rory for holding his head up and facing the press with class after he signed his scorecard — unlike some others.

This man, Louis Oosthuizen, is leading the British Open. Lucky for Louis that he teed off in the morning. It’s been brutal watching and blogging about the guys battling the Old Lady and the gales from the North Sea today. But I’m still live-blogging over at the Wall Street Journal’s blog. Come say hi! Leave a comment! Make fun of me! Whatever!

Go HERE.

There’s at least another hour of action left. Nope, it never gets dark here. The first guys teed off at 6:30AM.
