Oliver Wilson has taken the lead in Dunhill Links causing some to wonder whether the Englishman can rise again from the golfing graveyard.
Since the 2008 Ryder Cup, Wilsops has dropped down the rankings but his good form on the Old Course is now an opportunity to establish himself again in the sports.
The weather on the course turned gorgeous after a rather nasty start. Some say it was out of respect for the player, a beaming presence himself as he shot round the Old Course in 65 strokes, propelling himself to the top of the leaderboard as he did so.
While his rankings dropped considerably ever since the 2008 Ryder Cup, his play on the linkslands of Fife and Angus by many is now seen less of a return to form than a real rise from the golfing graveyard.
This is not surprising seeing that he arrived here in 792nd place in the world rankings and a Top 5 place would likely regain him the European Tour card as he did just three years ago. A win would give him full playing privileges for two years again. One can only hope and follow this with excitement!
