2:41 pm Update: Rory passes Daly, moves into top ten. McIlroy looking at a very makeable birdie attempt now.
Did March Madness hype itself to death? I just looked at TV listings for tonight and noticed the tourney has started. Thirty years ago, the tournament was a big deal. Office brackets were done out of love, organically, by the office sports nuts — not for profit by big corporations. It’s become obligatory to “care” and “follow.” No, thanks. I’ll take any of the majors. However, I should say, at least they have the knockout formula, not the lame-ass crap we get at the WGC Match Play the first three days. Talk about doing something “for profit” and “big corporations.”
8:30 am Update: John Daly, the world’s most beloved golfer, currently sits atop the leaderboard in Orlando. Looks like Rory will have his work cut out for him when he plays in the afternoon wave, because there’s at least one old dog that ain’t gonna roll over for him!
