Bay Hill gives up the Birds

I don’t want to speak too soon like I did when I picked Graeme McDowell as my fantasy winner for Bay Hill or when I said that Jason Duffner was the top story of round 1 at Bay hill.  I still think Duffner could be a good story going through the weekend if he keeps his name close to the top of the leader board.  With that said, Bay Hill seems to have realized that it was a tough SOB yesterday and is happily giving up the birdies today.  Have you looked at the leader board yet?

So far we have Steve Marino (-5), Aaron Baddely (-4), Charles Howell III (-5), Erik Compton (-4) and Dicky Pride (-8) just to name a few.  What a difference a day makes in scoring.  In case you didn’t read that last sentence Dicky Pride is currently -8 through 14 holes after shooting an opening round 77.  I think it is safe to say that conditions are much more forgiving today at Bay Hill.  Oh ya, and Tiger shot a -4 68 to put himself tied T5 going into the weekend.  No big deal.

If the conditions stay this way the scores for round 2 will be nothing but stellar.  Guess who hasn’t even teed off yet?  Mahan, Mickelson, Bubba, Garrigus and Rose.  All guys who we know can go low.  I haven’t been this excited to watch a second round since the last major.  Bay Hill rarely disappoints!!
