GREAT SHOTS: The AP's Doug Ferguson noted Golf Channel began its telecast of Thursday's first round "with dramatic footage from a stationary camera atop a tower behind the ninth green." It showed a TV tower behind the eighth green "toppled onto a bunker." Moments later, the "tower behind the ninth blew over backward and into a small pond, and the camera went from showing the green golf course to the gray sky and then went blank as it plunged into the water" (AP, 3/10).
