Update Johnnie Walker Championship bets

At the end of round 1, all my bets are still within the cut.
I expect the cut tomorrow around -1, maybe even -2.
Wiesberger, one of the favorites of the bookies, took the best start with -7.

Pleased with the start of Koepka, with -4. 2 boogies, 6 birdies.
Molinari is also still within striking distance at -3. Also 6 birdies but one boogie more. Last year, he did start with a 68, followed by 2 rounds in the seventies. If he can record another sub 70 round tomorrow, he still will be in contention.
Warren, Cabrera and Gallacher all recorded a -1. Only 3 birdies for Warren and Cabrera. Gallacher just had to many boogies 5 but did end the day with a promising eagle.

Still 54 holes left to play. So lots of things which can happen. The first hurdle is always to make the cut, followed by a good score on moving day!

The Barclays:
J. Day and H. Stenson didn't miss their start.Together with Spieth they were the only 3 bets who did play a full round. Spieth had a terrible start with a double and 2 boogies on the first round, fougth his way back on the back 9 with 4 birdies. My guess is that he can only climb up the rankings today.
The only other player which worries me a bit at the moment is Haas. +2 after 5 holes with no birdies.
We will see how things evolve.
3 bets battling to make the cut. Actually 2, cause Poultier is shanking.
For the rest 3 bets within the top10 after the first round. Looks good so far.
