"Is that a training aid?" mused ESPN's Andy North.
It got a little punchy early this morning, with a 3.5 hour weather delay disrupting the second round of the British Open. The first hour of the broadcast, which started at 4 a.m. ET, was spent showing a water-logged course and players on a driving range. It's not what ESPN expected -- the marquee groups of the morning were supposed to be going off as they came on air, not just the third (of 52) group an hour into the coverage.
So the broadcast was mostly course conditions, players on the range and lots of jokes from Sean McDonough and Andy North. John Daly obliged during his warm-up routine.
