House: Okay Shack, now we are cooking with gas ... THIS IS OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP WEATHER!! Average morning score of 75 leading to a +5 cut-line, that is how it is done, Royal Birkdale!! How about Zach Johnson's 66 today, verrrrrry impressive. Spieth taking on the brunt of the weather and still going under also outstanding. And I'm also seeing this young fella Rory...
Shack: Yes House, you are getting your sadistic wish. I followed Kuchar around and what a joy to watch him navigate a links in weather like this. He played two shots he’d like to have back, otherwise it was a lovely show of patience. And it was more gruesome out there as the day went on. Hope you did not enjoy it too much! Though Kuchar did! Said he was looking forward to watching the the telly all afternoon!
House: I'm not sure what it says about me that I am seeing the world just like Kooch...BUT I will say, it's not sadism that makes me enjoy a weather-challenged Open Champ. It's tradition! You didn't say anything about my man Rory...
Shack: You aren’t alone, Kuchar told us after the round he was looking forward to watching it all play out too. Funny how The Open is allowed to be nasty and cruel and even the players like it! You know why though House? Because the interference is from Mother Nature, not some guy with a Stimpmeter under his arm. So you are safe with this view...for now.
House: Life rule, EMBRACE TRADITION! So you are not going to give me any love on Rory, that's fine. Tell me 3 guys you have your eyes on for the weekend and why...I'll go first: Poults (not Tiger's rival, but is he due?) Hideki (Intriguing math problem...his talent + this weather = ?? ) and RORS (he *might* be back, baby!!)
Shack: I’ll grant you Poults, though he has to survive this Friday mess we are about to experience. I’ll stick with Kuchar because I watched him work his way around the course and he fits the demo that has been doing well at The Open. And Spieth just doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere. Rory, you can have. He’s all yours!
House: Alright Shack, we have done it. Rooting for a wet and wild weekend ... for myself ... and the same thing for the Open Championship!
Shack: Oh you are getting to the wetness and I’m going to get wet, but I have a shiny new umbrella to test out!
