The fans always turn out to support this tournament. People are saying that after watching last week's raucous crowds at Bethpage Black, the paying customers at the GHO will likely continue the noise. Watch and listen on the last few holes for some big-time cheering.
Celebrities will be all over the place at Wednesday's Pro-Am. Mickelson is playing with Connecticut Governor John Rowland. University of Connecticut head basketball coach Jim Calhoun is playing with Matt Kuchar. Actor Leslie Nielson is in a group with Tim Herron. Super Bowl winning coach Bill Belichick is playing alongside John Daly. It's interesting to see the Tour players interact with stars from other professions, each being enamored with the other. The golfer wants to talk about what his partners do for a living. The partners just want to talk golf.
