What to Watch In Round 3 at St. Andrews: Leading Hair, Rors’ Roars and More Birdies

Now that TigerWatch is over, here are a few things to look for Saturday at the British Open…

Hair Today, Comb Tomorrow

Let the MulletWatch begin: Golf’s favorite mullet-wearer, Australian Cameron Smith, lit up the Old Course with a 64. He was 6 under par through 10 holes, right about the time the wind direction switched, but he did have a lengthy putt for 63 on the 18th green. The Open’s low round is 62 by Branden Grace; 63 is the low score in the other three majors.

The Old Course typically rewards a power-hitter and a good chipper. Smith is long enough but his iron game is strong and his putting may be the best in modern golf. Think of him as Jordan Spieth 2.0 (1.0 being the 2015 Spieth).
