The Open championship is underway at Royal St. George's and the scene is pretty familiar: There have been some low scores, some hard-to-judge distances, lots of fescue-induced headaches and typical British Open weather.
Obviously there's a ton of golf left to play, so the snap judgments are just that: snap judgments.
But things are starting to come into view a bit: Youth means pretty much nothing, as we've seen old-timers like Thomas Bjorn, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Mark Calcavecchia grab early leads while Rory McIlroy and a few of the other youngsters ran into some early trouble.
Still, perhaps more than any other major championship, things can change so quickly at the British Open. It's not unusual to see basically four different golf courses over the span of four days, so stay tuned.
