I'm having trouble here not skipping to 2pm...
7:15am: Pushed it even 15 minutes later today, rebel journalist.
8:20am: The usual John pick up... some sports talk radio and Boom radio.
9:00am: Let's try to go a different way to parking today... How about let's get lost?
9:20am: Let's go explore and eat our breakfast... which we keep missing.
9:30am: Out and about asking fans to spell C-H-A-R-L S-C-H-W-A-R-T-Z-E-L
We did this amongst other trivia questions for a long time.... while we also searched for the best dressed of the Canadian Open (this segment isn't finished and will be up later in the week)
11am: Let's find John Daly....
11:30am: Putting green sighting of the man in the purple pants with a coke in his hand.
11:40am: "Me thinking how the hell am I going to get John Daly to talk about fashion.. do I start with Roll Tide, Woooo Pig Soooie?"
11:45am: Spoke to his caddie Peter who is so South African, straight from Durban, him and John have to get to the tee... no luck with John, he likes his Coke more than me. He is also kinda really does look like a lion in person....... weird.
1230pm: Ice Cream sandwich...
1pm: Sitting in on Jim Furyk's press conference...
2pm: Awaiting the arrival of the Champion Golfer ...
2:10pm: "WHY IS THE CLARET JUG RIGHT BEHIND ME?"
2:11pm: A few people have taken picture with it at this point and I figure since Todd Lewis from the Golf Channel got his taken I may as well try my luck...... hahaha I think he has a BIT more pull than me.
2:12pm: .................. see below!!
2:13pm: Breathe... coolest golf moment ever. I kept thinking about all the hands that had been on that iconic, historic trophy... Leave it to me to not be starstruck of any golfer at the tournament but just of a jug that has no pulse!
3pm: Off to film the Walk with the Pro's... and also to search for JD.
3:30pm: Matt Kuchar on the tee and we're inside the ropes... When people told me this guy was a nice guy you always wonder but honestly what a prince of guy. He signed more autographs then you can imagine with the biggest smile on his face and was so nice to his walk with the pro kid. I'm rooting for him this week, big time. Koooooooch!
3:45pm: JOHN! He's next up... not the right opportunity to ask him about fashion (his pro-am group was preeeeetty slow)
4pm: Took in some groups finishing on 18. Honestly, what a beautiful finishing hole at Hamilton. That hole is going to pump on the weekend.
5pm: Edit.... oh cue my final cut not working at all. It's time for a new computer folks. Anyone want to donate a Macbook Pro to poor Morgan? I spent the majority of my time helping the photog man with name that player game when he didn't know who it was he shot. I was pretty good at it.
7pm: Final edit on John's comp of "How do you spell Charl Schwartzel" about to export it and it crashes.... Nothing done... John's editing it during the Jays game from his couch tonight! You guys can see that one tomorrow!
Round 1 tomorrow stay tuned!
My picks for the week:
Winner: Matt Kuchar
Contender: Jim Furyk
Canadian pick: Graham DeLaet
Darkhorse: Bud Cauley
What I learned today: Wear you sneakers tomorrow.... The Claret Jug is way bigger than I imagined, or maybe people like Ernie just make it look small?
