Steve Spurrier came to Columbia more than a decade ago and asked, 'Why not us?'

 

The legendary football coach was referring to years of ineptitude by the Gamecocks on the gridiron. He had just been hired to come in and clean up the mess left behind by Lou Holtz, whose tenure ended in shame with a fight-marred loss at Clemson and rampant player misbehavior.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Saturday was supposed to bring the conclusion of the second round and the start of the third round. Instead, after a brief period of play, we have been in a wind delay all day. Play might resume at 6 p.m. local time, but we'll see.

So instead of grousing in the media centre (note British spelling), I took the opportunity to explore a bit of St. Andrews with my traveling companions.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- There's an expression about weather in Scotland that has proved handy this week.

"If you don't like Scottish weather, wait 30 minutes, and it is likely to change," is widely attributed to Raymond Bonner.

Bonner was right. Earlier this week, conditions that seemed a bit chilly turned quite favorable in the span of a few minutes.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Playing golf in Scotland has always been a bucket list item for me.

Check.

I've played three rounds so far this week, and so far so good. Not my game, but the experience has been wonderful. As columnist Scott Michaux says, he hasn't had a bad round of golf here yet. And he's played over here a bunch.

Fortunately, I've had incredible weather. Each round has started with me in a pullover and by the end of the round I'm wearing short sleeves. No rain and lots of sunshine.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- I have a confession to make: I have not always been a Tom Watson fan.

The main reason for that is that Jack Nicklaus has always been my favorite golfer, and no other golfer got the better of Jack more often in the majors than Watson.

My most vivid memory came at the U.S. Open in 1982. My dad and I had played a round of golf at Highland Park, and when we came in Mr. McNair informed us that Nicklaus had made five birdies in a row and was in the lead.
