I'm not sure what brand of watch Rory has but if I was him I would have set it to local time as I got off the aircraft. This is day three, he was on time for the previous days' rounds: something is not quite holding water here. In his defence he play's marvelous golf when he doesn't practice too much, he holed putts he was missing in the previous rounds.
i agree some this is a little fishy. but then maybe we're a little more skeptical after Tiger. not trying to imply anything that happened was like the TIger situation, just saying the public isn't as trusting as it use to be. but i guess if you're watching TV and they say your tee time is at a certain time, you might not think about it. but at the same time, don't you think you wouldn't want to rely on the GC for your tee time??
