Pass me a bottle Mr.Jones

The performance by the Aussies this morning was enough to make you want to turn to the drink with only 2 of the 8 Australian golfers winning their matches. The performance of our local broadcaster Channel 10, didn’t help matters much either.

The performace of the day came from Mathew Goggin scoring one of the upsets of the day defeating Kenny Perry who has been in some fine form. Geoff Ogilvy was the other winner winning with a par on the 19th against Kevin Sutherland. Ogilvy led by 2 with 2 to play only to be pegged back.

Stuart Appleby has now been knocked out in the first round 7 times but all eyes were on Brendan Jones, well on his playing partner anyway. Jones played solidly enough but was a little nervyand against Woods, you really can’t make any bogeys. His eagle on 15 was pretty awesome after Tiger had put his close but after that I relied on the internet for the updates.

It was then that Channel 10 HD had seen enough and switched to their regular programs. Absolutely terrible. Channel 10 now have two stations and it seems it’s just not enough in order to keep the golf going if it runs overtime on a Thursday morning. Seriously Ten!
