Impressive golf from every angle
Cutting around the back of the 10th green and skirting the penultimate putting surface, I happened upon Bjorn and Illonen launching a Nordic assault on the 15th green. What a frightening prospect that second shot is for an amateur but apparently not so for these two. I wouldn't be too surprised to see one or both of those in contention this week.
Next stop (via a ham and cheese on rye and an iced tea) was the corner of 2, 3 and 4, a slice of the course that isn't much seen in the TV coverage. The short 4th is a beautifully presented par-3, where I saw Charl Schwartzel very nearly hole-in-one.
My only fear with my commentary thus far is that I might not do this experience justice, perhaps at times like these it is best just to keep it simple and say I'll be back next year and for as many years as possible after that.
