American golfer Brandt Snedeker looks like he could be calm in the middle of a hurricane.
Since it is the British Open, we may get a chance to find out.
With three PGA tour wins to his credit, Snedeker has been scarily consistent on the quirky, bunker-filled golf course. With 26 straight greens in regulation at one point, Snedeker followed up his one bad approach shot with a pitch from the deep rough that finished just over a foot away from the hole.
On 18, Snedeker had to punch out of the rough, but he hit his third within 10 feet to make a clutch par.
It may only be Friday, but Snedeker appears unflappable, and he is the only golfer of the 157 entrants to not have a bogey on his card through 36 holes.
Which leads to the inevitable question, what will happen if he does?
We all learned from Mike Tyson's glass jaw that sometimes flaws are not exposed in players until adversity strikes. What once seemed invincible now seems incapable.
With three top 10s in majors, Snedeker has never made the cut in the Open Championship until this week. Of course, if the weather stays calm and he never bogeys, he could make this course look like a cake walk, much like Rory McIlroy did at Congressional in the 2011 US Open.
How will he handle the pressure and, more importantly, how will he handle the inevitable mistakes that this weekend will bring to everyone?
