Fallies: It looks like everyone is on Rory this week due to his last two meetings. He was also nine Sunday at Torrey Pines, which has apparently been forgotten. In the last Open, he missed the cut on Portrush despite an incredible 2nd round. Before that he was away T-2, T-4, T-5, winning in this championship. He said how the course is ‘lush’, which almost seems like he likes the course. I will be happy to be on the island on Rory this week.
