Now the action has started I took the liberty of creating a new thread for us to post our updates.

McIlroy among the early starters. Currently 5th on 1 under.

McIlroy in 2nd on 3 under.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be spending the evening in the clubhouse watching the action as previously thought.

We're all getting turfed out at 6 o' clock as they're hosting a fundraiser for the local Lions club :tantrum:

I'd be surprised if either of the Mollinaris won Malc, but given the surprise major winners over the past few years, I wouldn't rule it out.

Two of my favourite players are in contention, Daly and Jiminez. Not for long I expect.

Yes, I'll never forget the play off between Daly and Rocca in , what 1995, at Royal Troon?

As for Jiminez, I'm surprised he's there. Won't all his cigars get confiscated at customs?

Great start from Jamie Donaldson today....go on son !

Although looks like Westwood has played himself out of contention again unless he does something special today.

Yes, everyone is surprised when Jiminez is there, but he's a good player and a proper bloke - big cigars, likes his wine, middle-aged, pot belly, pony tail, nearly always smiling. I'm led to believe he's a very popular chap among his peers on tour and in the Ryder Cup squad.

Woods shares lead with Singh and Petterson at the end of day 2.

He only hit 10 greens in regulation! Imagine where he'd be if he could find his long game.

Malc, my TV is having kittens trying to render John Daly's trousers, have you seen them today? Unfortunately Daly has slipped down the field so we might not see much more of him.

I'm glad to see Rose thrusting up.

Nothing would make me more happy than to see Rose win a major

We've thrashed this out before - where did he play that amazing round as a rookie at the Open? I have it in my mind that it was Carnoustie but you said it was elsewhere.

Well, Rory certainly dominated that one didn't he!

I expect he's now of sufficient status to be invited onto the Jonathan Ross show, a real tongue-twister for the host! :D

Feels like that performance kind of came out of nowhere, i.e he has been pretty ordinary for the last 8 months and then all of a sudden something just clicked.

I must admit I was hoping Poulter would win, but you can't keep getting birdies like he was at the start.

For Poulter to have had a chance, he needed Rory to feel the pressure of his charge, he didn't and won going away. Be interesting to see how Rory responds to the pressure when it's a bit closer in a major as the 2 he has won, no-one has been close enough to trouble him.

Too much time rooting that tennis player.
