Johnson arrived on a commercial flight Saturday morning without having slept much on the plane and managed to get in 18 holes in windy conditions, and was headed out for 18 more Sunday.He doesn't expect to hit more than about four drivers, not because he can't take on the bunkers, but because of the trouble behind them. Johnson said he hit driver on the 499-yard sixth hole that bends sharply to the right toward the Irish Sea, straight into the wind. He had a 5-iron left into the green, which was unusual only because he typically only hits 5-iron for his second shot into par 5s. At one point, Johnson was on the putting green with world No. 2 Hideki Matsuyama and Rory McIlroy, who is coming off a missed cut at the Scottish Open.Kevin Chappell only had his putter, and that wasn't even his. He arrived on British Airways but his clubs did not, so he borrowed a putter that looked similar enough to his and rapped a few putts.
