At The Open Championship John Daly, the 1995 champion, is in the clubhouse with a 66. Daly easily could have shot a 62 as four of his putts lipped out. Despite the tricky short grass, Daly shot his personal low round of The Open Championship. He shot a 66 in the second round in 1993.
“I’m happy. I’m hitting the ball real good. I love this place, this is my baby, I love it.”
Andrew Coltart the 40 year old Scot and member of the 1999 Ryder Cup team joins Daly in the clubhouse with a 66. A number of other players including Sean O’Hair are still on the course charging toward Daly’s 66 as he headed to the interviews.
UPDATE: Rory McIlroy, the 21 year-old from Northern Ireland, is now atop the leaderboard with a nine under 63.
