Rory McIlroy Shoots Record Round in Day 1 of British Open

Rory McIlroy, whose name I will never get right due to my affinity for the movie Tin Cup, has made history today, shooting a 63 (-9) in his first round at St. Andrews.  Second place is owned by Louis Oosthuizen (-7), and 5 players are tied for third (-6) including John Daly, who led the day at one point.  Tiger and 8 other schmoes are tied at -5.  Phil Mickelson shat the bed and shot +1.

Here’s a link to CBS’s live coverage for all you guys who have jobs, but not jobs that are serious enough where you have to do actual work instead of watch golf.  It’ll be in the sidebar for you all week.

Alright enough serious golf talk, let’s get back to the important subject – fake movie golf that is fake. Trivia questions for the comments: 1. What was the first tournament that Happy Gilmore played in? 2. What did Roy McAvoy shoot on the 18th and final hole of the U.S. Open, and 3. what was his overall score for the final round?  The prize for a correct answer is a carefully crafted, handsome gentleman’s chest.

P.S. If you don’t know what the above picture has to do with golf get the hell off my blog.
