The OPEN Championship

As a lot of you know, there's another big sporting event happening this weekend - the British Open golf championship... overseas, it's simply known as The Open Championship. One of the big advantages of being on East coast time is you can actually be up to catch all of the day's coverage of the tournament on TNT. Now, while I don't intend on watching golf on TV all day today, I will be doing my share of watching. Tiger Woods has already played his first round and put up a two under par 69, good for a spot on the first page of the leaderboard. Phil Mickelson was at one over par through six holes. As I write this, former Open champion John Daly had taken the lead at five under par.

Live coverage of the tournament will continue on TNT today and tomorrow 10am PT/7am ET through 10pm PT/7 pm ET. On the weekend, the coverage will switch to your local ABC affiliate.

**UPDATE** Sergio Garcia has assumed the first round lead, shooting a six-under-par 65. John Daly, who was in the lead as I originally wrote this, struggled his final seven holes, going eight over par, finishing the day with a 3-over-par 74. Phil Mickelson shot an even par 71. ****
