108th US Open at Torrey Pines

The stage is set for the 108th US Open at Torrey Pines South Course and this course is going to prove to be a heck of a challenge even for the worlds best. These guys are up against a beast that will be tuff to tame especially if the wind/weather becomes a factor playing at 7,643 yards par 71.

First, I don't look for Tiger to be a factor come Sunday afternoon in this years Open first tournament back after surgery this will prove to be to much, even for Tiger.

My top three's picks to be in contention on Sunday afternoon will be:
Phil Mickelson
Boo Weekley
Padraig Harrington

My top three could be surprise picks are as follows:
Brandt Snedeker
Rod Pampling
My wild shot.......Sergio (if I only could make a putt) Garcia

Who are you picking to win the US Open?

ESPN - Woods says he's ready, despite not walking full 18 since Masters - Golf

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

Good picks there.

Look out for Adam Scott, 3 Top 10s and 1 win in 8 starts (made all 8 cuts). And Stewart Cink, who has played very well this year (No wins, but 2 2nds and 2 3rds).

My long shot: Jason Bohn (only because we have something in common...our name)

Thanks Jason...I mean BDBohnzie......ya never know in these majors it could be another lesser known player as we witnessed last year. Who would have played those odds?

Scott is legit and playing well some putting struggles but I don't think he will be a factor . Cink seams to always be in there just can't finish coming down the stretch. And for Jason....bad news.....doesn't make the cut, sorry man...LOL

Anyway, here is the list of players in this years 2008 U.S. Open from 1-156 and I believe their where predictions. Should be a great four days of golf and one heck of a challenge for all.

ESPN - U.S. Open field: From 1 to 156 - Golf

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

I'm going with Phil so he will have won all 4 majors and this is his home course. Well it was redone a few years back but he has played a many rounds here. I think while Tiger will lurk around this weekend the rust and his knee will bring him down but if he did pull out a win it would not surprise me either.

Nothing at all...go to sleep, that boring ass PTI same old shit! OR you can watch the the GREATEST golfing event in the states....The U.S Open, pretty simple.

They at least have a tiny clue what most of the world want to watch, they want a little action on the ratings.....

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

Woods' performance Saturday night is just silly. I think he puts MJ to shame when it comes to the sheer balls of his excellence. Club members that make those shots spend the rest of their lives telling you about it, and he has three in one round. If he had sold his soul for those shots he woud still have the better end of the deal.

While I am a PTI fan, I think they made the right choice...especially considering they aired PTI on espn2. No big deal really.

It's impossible to compare Woods to Jordan, but I understand your point. We are witnessing the best player this world has quite possibly ever seen. He's so dominant it's not even funny to be another contestant. He's just flat out amazing. These are the kinds of performances we will be telling our grandchildren about.

Re: 108th US Open at Torrey Pines

Well what a Sunday afternoon at Torrey...Tiger comes alive on the back 9, what a performance, and that clutch putt on 18 to make it go another day, only Tiger.

And Rocco WOW! What a hell of a round he put together. At 45 he is still playing great golf and I don't think anyone has more fun than Rocco, class act. I'm sure he would do anything to have 18 over again but thats golf.

Monday, the clear favorite is Tiger. I hope Rocco has the day of his life going toe to toe against Tiger because thats what its going to take to hoist the trophy. Should be fun to watch, I'm pullin for the Huge underdog (but it's just like any other day of match play golf, one hole at a time, and Rocco did put together a better round score wise than Tiger today, can he do it twice...?)...go Rocco!
