Open Championship Tuesday Reads

openlogo.jpgThe Golf Digest blog gets off to a promising start, offering some information when major blogs are most handy--early in the week.

Gary Van Sickle posts his odds while Doug Ferguson talks to Nick Faldo about his pairing with Tiger and reminds us that Tiger is not a fan of those who question his swing changes.

Ferguson also has an entertaining chat with Brad Faxon, who admirably made the trek despite being the 6th alternate.

And Alistair Tait hints at what a trusted soul predicted to me many months ago: Hoylake is going to be vulnerable to very low scores.  Tait says not enough length was added and that the current setup and weather points to a birdiefest. Several other stories covered the same ground, but Tait's is the best.
