ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- On our Thursday morning walk to the course, longtime golf writer -- and even longer time Scot -- John Huggan paused and noted the light easterly wind blowing. "There are going to be a lot of low scores going out."
He was correct.
The 144th Open Championship is underway and the entire field seems like it's already under par. In the first group, Greg Owen went out in three-under-par 33. Not bad, but it didn't even match his playing partner, Thomas Bjorn, who opened his Open with a 32. Again, this is just the first group out.
