Scottish Open: Francesco Molinario Activates “Beast Mode” at Castle Stuart
Ernie Els will have some extra time to prepare for his title defense at the British Open after missing the cut at the Scottish Open thanks to a disappointing performance over the first two rounds. He didn’t play poorly but Els did not score enough to keep up with the field – hence the fact that he didn’t make it to the weekend. ”I had no idea on these greens – I’m glad I’m leaving,” said Els. Even though he didn’t light the course up over the first two days, Els says that he is still happy with where he’s at heading into the Open Championship.
Chris Doak, a native of Scotland, currently sits atop a crowded leaderboard at 12 under par. He’s been nothing if not consistent over the first two rounds. Doak has carded five birdies, an eagle and a bogey each of the first two days. I would have been even more impressed had he scored the exact same on each hole in the first two rounds but I guess that is asking a bit too much.
Francesco Molinari, the talented young Italian, tweeted earlier in the day that he was activating his “beast mode” setting. It would appear as if he was on to something with that comment has he managed six birdies on the day and turned in a blemish-free scorecard. He’s currently three shots back at nine under par and is part of the crowded leaderboard that I previously mentioned.

The weather is going to going to play a major role in how things shake out over the weekend at Castle Stuart. Whoever endures the conditions the best is likely going to be the one to prevail, especially if they’re part of the crowd at the top of the leaderboard as the weekend begins.
