6:05 am
and golf course,hey aren't deterred by the weather. they are in their water proofs and umbrellas. they are ready to cheer and cheer hard. you're going to hear it when shane lowry is back in the thhoter bend my sulder on the first tee. yesterday when he came off the 18th green after shooting a 63, what a reception forwr loy. it looked like he won the championship. it almost felt like sunday in a ryder not saturday at the open. chanting his name throughout. he's going to hear that from his fans. we're going to be here in over 40,000 numbers on this day. they might be wet. look at the weather. the temperature is 61 now. it is going to be spells of heavy rain now and then right around when the leaders are playing the back nine, thed wi co the bigger story with potential gusts of 40 miles per hour. as we said, they split the tee times up. we have a little bit of rain coming. there's more coming in yellows and blues in the north atlantic are on the way. the question is how much of it will come during this time. but that's part of the open,
6:06 am
some of the reason there's so much drama and history in this event is because the element other in more than any championship and somebody is going to have to survive them to be the champion golfer of the year. here to tell it dan hicks and former golfer of the year dan webber. >> mike, thank you very much. one of the great days in all spoert, especially with the ickdrop of portrush. the weather on the we, we think. we think it's going to be the latest dayo crown the champion golfer of the year. let's get you out to the golf course here. weheck in at the top with peter jacobsen at the 11th. >> paul casey, even yipar, plang his second to the par 4. playing par 5 back in 2012 at the irish open. it's now a par 4 over to 14. >> par 3, 198 today, bubba
6:07 am
watson playing down the hill. hole location in the back right to the green, wind helping it off the right, get through almost close to the 17th green. too much club there for bubba. >> first guy to tee off today ashton turner, 23-year-old englishman finishing up at 18e th for birdie. missed the cut in his only other open but playing the weekend and finishing it up in style. so we've gotne in at 68. so ashton turner, that's going to look like a pretty good scor late on when this weather happens. to 16.
6:08 am
>> barn rat here at 16. what a shot, eagle at 62. couple of early birdies on the front. so a birdie. might be able to sell that to the leader later onf we get the weather expected. >> bubba watson with his trusted man scott. >> that's one of the great things about links golf, options around the greens. bubba in the closely mown area, see a down slo and up a steep slope before the green. >> he is so creative, justin. you were talking about it yesterday why he hasn't been
6:09 am
more successful in these opens a chance to save his par there. as we heard mike just describe, the place is still buzzing about shane lowry. he called it obviously the most incredible day of his golfing career. it's one of the best day we've ever had the privilege of witnessing. eight birdies around 63. hard to put what we saw yesterday in perspective. >> he was in a dream-like state yesterday. he epa talked about in his pressor afterwards, he doesn't remember a whole lot of the rounds. he was in such a deep zone. these spectators here, they carried him around on their shoulders yesterd and they are ping they can do the same thing today. >> all those birdies helped build a four-shot lead. as a matter of fact, it's the same exact lead he had back in the 2016 u.s. open.
6:10 am
other 54 holeeaders since 2000 to have that lead, wasn't able to close in 2012, rory with the errant drive at the 10th which led to an 80. this game is so about the mental picture. there was lowry who says he's learned a lot from that 76fi in the l round at the open when he had that four-shot lead. but now he's got this long wait ngday. what is he goi to have to concentrate on, justin, to make sure that this time it doesn't slip away? >> i had a similar situation in 2002 at the pga championship at zeltine, a three-shot lead through 54 holes over rich beem. it was an uncomfortable roundlff because i knew it was really mine to win. granted i had alr won a championship in '97, so i wasn't in unfamiliar territory but feeling uncomfortable to have that lead and try to do it. shane lowry, he's been in that position before. hopefully he views that as a
6:11 am
learning experience for today and not maybe a trend he's on. >> he went intthe press room afterwards, bring it on, started to bring it up, he said, i knew i was going to be asked about that. i'd be lying to you if i didn't say i was going to sleep picturing myself with the clarity jug. he's bracing the moment. we'll see if he's able to pull it off thisime around. shane lowry, tee time coming up later on 1:47 local time as we get u back to 11. >> paul casey with this birdie putt back up the hill. that would have been nice to gon . paul casey, happy birthday to paul. he's 42 today. johnson and begay there. >> thank you. had a chanceo walk with him earlier today. got of ontake nice start, easy two-putt par on the first and
