Even Golf Pros Get the Blues

Just a reminder that golf is no respecter of persons, and a link to a Golf Tips Magazine article about the rough Thursday had by several golfers, including Rory McIlroy.

Rory McIlroy struggling at THE OPEN on Thursday

Portrush wasted no time smacking Rory around, handing him a quad on the very first hole of the day. And then a double on 16 and -- for good measure -- a triple to finish the day on 18. Perhaps this was payback for that 61 he posted as a teenager; maybe it was just the tao of golf.

And maybe it's just the result of being human. I know that feeling very well.

All I know for sure is that Tiger finished the day T144, Rory T150, and David Duval brought up the rear of the field at 156. All three got mentioned in this article. I can't help but think that it's a reflection on the new schedule, showing how much harder it is to make such a big adjustment in a single year than anyone expected.

But at the very least it's a reminder to us all that nobody has the inside track on this game so we shouldn't let bad scores define our view of ourselves.

Because even the best golf pros have days like this.
