Re: US Open Picks

I see they had 7 amatuer's qualify this year. For those that don't know anyone which meets some requirements (I think its a regestered handicap below a given number) can try and qualify for the US Open. Not sure if any AM has ever won the Open but its pretty cool that they have the chance.

It already is. And the first day is the easiest layout of the course. Oakmont is going to be probually the toughest challenge these guys face this year, most defenitely on the weekend.

It looks like that was pretty close to on point. Jim is still in good shape at +6, other than Casey having a hell of a round one of the best ever at Oakmont, right there with Johnny Millers 73 performance. The weekend rounds are going to be totally BRUTAL!

I know I'm late, but I'll take Scott Verplank.

Re: US Open Picks

Well neither Scott nor Stenson was able to make the cut, so I need Tiger to win to mitigate the degree to which I look like an imbecile.

Re: US Open Picks

Tiger and Bads in the last pairing, Furyk isn't out though, 4 back is still in range.......BUT TIGER....!

However, Tiger in the last pairing, he's lickin his chops......gonna be tough to beat. I can't recall him losing in the last pairing of a major?

I thought old BUBBA might finish round 3 with the lead , that triple killed him, he's not done though. Gonna be a HECK of a finish!

He was in the last group at the Masters this year which was won by Z. Johnson a couple of groups ahead. I also think he was beaten by Hal Sutton at The Players one year although that is not a major. It is the closest thing to it, though. Those are the only two instances that come to mind.

Re: US Open Picks

Tiger was a couple of birdies away from owning this day and probably the tournament

You are correct, he missed a few putts that usually fall. I have a feeling he just might make up for those tomorrow.

But all other parts of his game where on point! Including his putting, just missed a few that could have really seperated him from the field.

You are right, I forgot about Zach Johnson, he became the first Masters winner since Nick Faldo in 1990 not to come from the final pairing. That's pretty special. I remember Hals deal that went into a Monday, but that wasn't a major.....but they act like it is....? Maybe one day that will be the 5th?

I think it already gets more hype than the PGA, which is to me the weakest major. They have to wait for Woods to break Jack's record and maybe then they can re-categorize.

Re: US Open Picks

Tiger is 0-28 in MAJORS when not tied or in the lead after 54 holes. I think he breaks that streak today if he hits the ball anywhere near the way he did yesterday.
