Master craftsman Bob Vokey is hanging out at the Home of Golf this week, trying to keep dry like everyone else.

As you might expect, he's also been pretty busy helping players prepare for the windy, bouncy Open links.

Click the image below to check out pictures from Vokey's first few days at St. Andrews.

It's been an interesting day here at St. Andrews. Winds are howling and the rain is finally here... it's actually horizontal, yes, the rain!  I was able to get some practice in before the bloody weather took a turn for the worse. Course is going to play a lot longer for our opening round tomorrow. Forecast indicates that it's not supposed to let up anytime soon. I guess the good thing is that we are all faced with the same challenges. We'll just wait and see how much play we get in tomorrow. 

I had a great time in Ireland at the JP McManus Pro-Am last week. It was a good couple of days and the hospitality was first class. Thanks to everyone that was a part of JP's team. I flew to St. Andrews on Wednesday morning last week and had a few good days of practice. It helps to come to a course a little early and get some practice in before the media and spectators arrive. This is where our sport began and it's such a special place. It's very rich in history and you can feel it when you're here. 

I am having a low-key evening and will get to bed early. Tee time is 1:42pm local time. I'm feeling good and looking to get off to a good start tomorrow! For more news on The Open follow my page on Facebook (adamscott_golf). 

Until next time, take care.

#1 BALL, IRON, WEDGE and PUTTER: According to the Darrell Survey, Titleist was the overwhelming GOLF BALL of choice at the Reno-Tahoe Open with 80 players, more than four times the nearest competitor with 18. Titleist was also first in IRON SETS with 31; SAND, LOB and APPROACH WEDGES with 130; and PUTTERS with 58.

The Scottish gales coming in off the turbulent North Sea Wednesday in St. Andrews are doing nothing to dampen the spirits of Titleist Brand Ambassador Jason Bohn, who is at the Home of Golf for the first time in his life.

Bohn, winner of this year's Zurich Classic of New Orleans, is also playing this week in his first Open Championship, an experience the 37-year-old has already called "truly one of the highlights of my career."

Check out the videos below for Jason's first impressions of the Old Course, along with an interesting fact about St. Andrews that you might not know...
