    Yesh and it's getting colder with currently 14C with the wind picking up as well.

    Current leaderboard

    1 R Streb -6 ( 18 )
    2 D Johnson -6 ( 11 )
    2 J Spieth -6 ( 11 )

    3 Americans on top of the leaderboard, then 5 players with -5 and 6 players with -4. Pretty good scores so far but this will probably change. Weather is getting worse.

    R Goosen, C Schwartzel and P Lawrie are sharing the lead with the other 3 guys. Tiger far far off the pace.

    Thanks a lot :-) :-) It's my fave men's major golf championship and the only one you can follow almost non stop live in Hong Kong. Tee times are perfect and the TV coverage is awesome!
