High winds and crummy conditions are giving the golfers a run for their money today.

Rory McIlroy, the 21-year-old who was leading going into today's play had a pretty bad day today and bogeyed his first five holes, then doubled 11. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods is holding on for dear life to his spot near the lead. He's reportedly having a bit of trouble in the 30mph winds, but hanging in there.

Oozthuizen is an unlikely leader in this tournament, as he's only played four majors and has never made the cut. However, he had his first win on the European Tour earlier this year, and it looks like that might have been the boost of confidence he needed to get himself back in the game.
