British Open Round 2

Time for another British Open update. I had duty today running the MWR computer lab. It isn't a bad gig but it took me out of the office for the whole day. Imagine my surprise when I finally caught the leaderboard and Tiger was already in with a 65 for the day to take him to 12 under for the tourney. Unbelievable. He holed out from 209 years on 14 for an eagle, pretty amazing. One place you do not want to be is behind Tiger at a major after the second round. He is 6-0 when leading after 36 hours and looks to be on fire. All is not lost however. Ernie Els is refusing to be intimidated by the greatest player in the game today, and is currently 4 under for the round to take him to 8 under for the tourney. He is playing 12 as we speak so he still has some scoring opportunities ahead of him and could pretty easily finish the day at -10. 2 strokes is more than Tiger needs but a man can hope. Somebody needs to make a run or it is going to be all Tiger all weekend.

Thanks for the update Steve. I guess "being on the other side of the pond" has its perks huh?
I hope Tiger tears that course apart. The Big Easy will crumble.
