The famous Alfie Plant is currently second on the leaderboard behind Poulter.

I like Poulter. Although my interest is minimal at the moment as I haven't put a bet on anyone.

Mark O'Meara with an 8 at the first and an 81 overall. Ouchy.

Love Poulter to win it, but unfortunately don't think it's going to happen.

Speiths birdie at 18 and Kuchars miss may have ruined today. Unless we see a meltdown JS will waltz it.

Nearly the meltdown I needed, but JS was brilliant in the last four holes.
Tough on Kuch and my betting account.

Good news for those without Sky the Beeb have the rights to the PGA. It's on the BBC red button now and at 11.15 on BBC2.

Well done to Justin Rose, getting his well deserved MBE today, the best English golfer since Faldo.

Didn't he used to support Villa and then switch to Chelsea? I've always thought he's a twat since hearing that somewhere.

I though he switched from Villa to Tottenham, which admittedly doesn't make it any better.

I always reserve a certain amount of football fan contempt for people who switch clubs, Nasser Hussain (Leeds to Arsenal) who I actually like on Cricket coverage and Zoe Ball (Liverpool to Man Utd in 1993 surprisingly!!) are two particularly outrageous cases.

I believe he's also a Clyde fan, which makes him a glory hunter on both sides of the border!

I don't follow golf but my folks and brother love it, the year he played at Birkdale in the Open (as an amateur I think) and was up with the leaders his caddy (an old school friend of my brother) stayed at my folks house in Ainsdale, my dad was in his element as he got to have a swing of a couple of his clubs in the back garden.

On another note, my brother hadn't swung a golf club in anger for over 10 years until a couple of months ago, last week he played a round to four over par, think it's coming back to him.

It's a great game, unfortunately have not played for 10 years, due to having 2 crap knees.
