Florida Citrus Semi Live Blog

6pm update: Surprise of the Day:  My biggest surprise of the day was how both Bryson and Henrik spun their wheels on a day when almost everyone was going low.  It was also odd how little coverage Rory got (at least when I was watching) for a guy who shot -5 and now sits two or three back heading into Sunday.  It’s not just that NBC puts all their eggs in one basket, it’s that they think only one basket exists.
