TOUGHEST COURSE IN THE WORLD BITES BACK
Sat, 17 Jul 2010 08:15 PM EDT

St. Andrews, Scotland. This is the setting for the current British Open, one that is pitting the best players in the world against themselves, but also against the elements.  Golf legend Tiger woods and many other big names have had a rough time dealing with the wind.  There was one man, Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, host to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, that managed to pull ahead. Scores.

Reaching a five-stroke lead early in the morning, he was able to sit back and relax as the rest of the players struggled with the gale like winds and horrible conditions.  Even the great Rory McIlroy was having a trying time on the course.

The hotshot from Northern Ireland went from the lowest score ever in a major championship to an 8-over 80. He is the youngest player, at 21, to have taken such a fall in the standings. His recent scores that put him under the international spotlight don’t seem to have come from the same player. Las Vegas odds.

Gaining notoriety after shooting 63 in one of golf’s biggest events.  The conditions at St. Andrews It left him with an 11-shot deficit heading to the weekend, definitely a tough hole to climb out of. It was so bad, that the officials in charge did something extremely rare: they stopped the game on account of the weather. 41 mph gusts left the course unplayable, as the balls would be blown severely off course.

The last 10 groups failed to finish, meaning 30 players will have to come back on Saturday at 6:30 AM to catch up. This is not something that most golfers would be looking forward to, but hey, this is the ultimate golf course in the world. The conditions match the reward, no tournament of such prestige should be easy to win, and so far, St. Andrews is living up to it’s reputation. Vegas odds.
