Definitely one of my favorite tournaments, the views are incredible and the golf is not half bad either.

Maybe Porteous can do 2 weeks in a row but I'm kinda hoping Stone gets fired up and pulls a win... I just like watching his swing really...

I was in South Africa during the Olympics last year and boy did Gary Player get stuck into Stone, called him mentally weak and fragile after numerous bad holes and I've followed him closely since,he's got a great swing but can he find trouble, so many rounds of 5 or 6 birdies but shoots over par.

Big hitters like Hend and Hatton have done well here in the past and strange to see Beef not playing after finishing 3rd I think last year. I'm keen on Ramsey/Dunne and Luke Donald must think his form is ok to head over from the US.

Bit harsh from Player considering Stone has won on the European Tour already... Ok they were in SA but still a win is a win! He's had a bit of an average season but anything can happen!

Noren is another to watch, and Fleetwood.

Suri is rock solid at the moment. Won't be long until he goes to the Koepka/Uihlein way back to his side of the pond.

For those of you having watched some of the HBO fantasy series "Game of Thrones", Danny Willett reminds me of Theon Greyjoy... in more than one way now. Sad, really.

Crazy beautiful views today.

The plan is to play both tours currently.   Getting to top 50 in OWGR gets a lot of starts that count on both tours. So that's the goal for next year.

From what I have seen of Suri  recently, that does not seem unrealistic. Seems to punish himself a little too much only. (One of the strenghts of Spieth btw)

I dont watch GOT so don't get the reference but sad is an accurate word, he must be seriously panicking his play is truly awful. It was painful to watch.

Suri looks miserable when playing, maybe it just is him being highly focused but does not seem to enjoy it

I can assure you he enjoys it.  He has high expectations and doesn't hide his emotions.

Julian Suri, another solid day. How high up the rankings will that guy go? Björk the biggest Scandinavian positive so far. Has done good this year. Rock solid player. Time for a win now?

I notice he is at No. 109 in the OWGR so with a good week he could break the top 100. He was at No. 1137!!!! at the end of 2016.

He could move into top 60 I believe with a win.  He's getting killed by the minimum divisor too.  His actual points per event would put him already in the top 50

He's currently doing a studio interview with Sky Sports, seems like a nice guy and giving the audience a good insight into his personality.

Incredible golf course, shame it doesn't have a better spot on the calendar as it could attract a stronger field.  And besides, who doesn't love Omega watches ?

Absolutey stunning scenery, scheduling is delicate as they have quite a short window. The course is under the snow for most of the year!

Yes he has a very good record there but Hend struggles to get over the line. I still like Fitzpatrick he also has a very good record at this tournament, if he closes the gap on Saturday and is in good position for Sunday I'd make him favourite.
