Open Start Times -- would you "try" to start earlier

    Fun watching the Open so far but it seems that the earlier starts give players an advantage. While it has evened out in the first two days, the top of the leaderboard will be at a disadvantage over the weekend.

    Would you "try" for an earlier start? I know it's not sporting to suggest but I wonder if giving up a few extra shots in the afternoon round Sat will help a player go low/post a score that will win.

    no.....i don't think that would work.  you'd have to give probably 4+ strokes and maybe a lot more just to get that advantage.  and that would be a lot to make up for.
