You have no favorite boards.
I'll allow the last few, but play is officially underway and will cut off entries at this point.
Granted it's early am, but the fllags are limp and this may be a day when the course is gettable.
Curious to see how they set it up and how much the wind picks up later on...

I can't wait to see the course in HD when I get home from work. I'll take full advantage of DirecTV today with all the special channels in stuff.
Giving my opinions on Gamecocks message boards since 2002.
K Bradley -6
Course is playing benign early
Chalmers already -4 thu 5
pressure to go low today
The wind usually picks up as the day goes on--but not always.
If it does, the PM players are screwed today.
Gentlemen! Play well. (Tommy Gainey: Wear your colors!!)

Course condtions remained benign Thursday for the most part and many took advantage, especially the am wave. Carl Pettersson sets the pace with a six under 66, followed by group at -5 headed by Rory McIlroy and Gary Woodland. A large contingent sits at -4 including McDowell, Adam Scott, John Daly and defending champ Keegan Bradley. Tiger Woods heads a group at -3. Dustin Johnson is currently five back.
Lefty didn't have his best hitting only five greens, but scrambled his way through tougher afternoon conditions and sits seven adrift.
Windier conditions with thunderstorms are expected Friday.

The Ocean Course showed it's teeth Friday where the scoring average soared to around 78... the highest in PGA championship history. Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods had two of only four rounds under par Friday, shooting 69 and 71 respectivey, and stand atop the leaderboard at -4 along with first round leader Carl Pettersson.
Poulter shot 71 and is one adrift. McIlroy slipped to 75, but lurks only two back. Adam Scott heads a group at -1. Lefty was the fourth to break par(71), heading a group at even par with McDowell.
Dustin Johnson was a casualty of the brutal condtions and struggled to 79, standing on the cut line of +6.
T1...V. Singh.....-4 (71-69)
T1.. Pettersson -4 (66-74)
T1.. Woods.......-4 (69-71)

Like Congressional a year ago, Rory McIlroy put on a dominating performance to win the 2012 PGA by eight shots firing a blistering 67, 66 over the weekend to finish -13. At 23 and 3 months, McIlroy becomes the second youngest player to win two majors, sandwiched months between the company of Nicklaus and Woods. Also winning by eight, McIlroy breaks Nicklaus' previous PGA record of seven shots and ascends deservedly back to world #1.
Ian Poulter made an impressive early charge birding six of the first seven and got within two, but faded down the stretch to finish nine back.
Woods, once again, found himself in prime position heading into the weekend of a major this year, only to fall back off the pace finishing 11 adrift. In a year where Woods has shown signs of coming back to form winning three times, he failed to break par in any weekend round of a major...a far cry from the days when major titles were basically a formality in similar positions.
Now to the winner of he contest...
Congratulations to cock4life who edged Scurvydog74 by picking McIlroy at -8!!!!

Somewhere, similar to Jimi Hendrix's guitar, Steve Cook gently weeps.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
