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.
