Brooks Koepka Leads the Charge in The Open Championship
It has been about four weeks since Brooks Koepka won the US Open out right.
Now after taking a much-needed break, he is back at it again. This time he is looking to win the 146th [British] Open.
He has surprised us again with great shots. One, in particular, was the Eagle at the 17th Hole. It looks like his play has gotten better and that his winning at Erin Hills was not a fluke. He is here to play and here to win.
I think his play style fits the Open style Golf Course. Koepka likes long fairways and large greens and few hazards. That is exactly what he got today [Thursday] during the 1st Round of the Open. He can out make Birdies and he tends to not make too many mistakes.
He is currently tied with Jordan Spieth at  -5. along with Matt Kucher -5 on the Leaderboard.
Some other Golfers to watch for are Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, and Rory McIlroy. Mickelson is +3. McIlroy +1. Watson is -2. We have seen them make runs at first place in the past.
We will be watching How well the US Open Champ does in this weeks Tournament. It starts Live on the Golf Channel at 1:30 am tomorrow [Friday] for Round 2.
It looks like it will be windy and rainy tomorrow during Round 2 which will undoubtedly wreak havoc on the Leader Board.
We’ll see how well the Leaders will play in those conditions. It is widely known that the weather at the Open can be challenging, think Tom Watson just losing during the 2008 Open. It was rainy and it was windy. So expect some of the veterans to play better in tomorrow.
