US Open Picks
 
Tiger's game has been off the past several weeks and this tall rough will do him in. Phil has that wrist injury which could help him by trying to stay in the short stuff but I don't think he will get it done and he could miss the cut. I'm going with a no name for this one and a no pick.

Going with a no name is fine but come on, you have to name somebody? I personally think Tiger is due for a US open victory. It's been since Bethpage in 02. Plus he has won a tournament since the masters I believe. So I'd go with him. But my darkhorse is Henrik Stenson. Plus, Adam Scott is going to have to make a push one of these days on a major sunday.

I am taking David Toms in this one. He keeps the ball in play and can putt the lights out when he is on fire. US Open golf is all about keeping the ball in the fairway and making PARS. Toms does that well and could win and should be in the top 5 on Sunday.

Phil does have the wrist thing, but l'll be rooting for him anyway. Keeping it in the middle this week is the deal, espicially for him, with the bum wrist. That rough is brutal.

If he can make it through Sunday I think he'll be in the mix & after last year "STUPID" mistake, I'm sure this would be the sweetest victory to date if he can pull it off. I look for Furyk to play well, this course sets up nicely for him.

Talking about Oakmont, did anyone catch the Johnny Miller special on the golf channel last night. I've been watchin Johnny M for a long time, what a good, straight shooting, stand up tell it like it is guy.

And the Open he won at Oakmont in 73 was truely UNREAL!

Geeeez, a darn 288 yard PAR 3, my lord and the greens like a waxed bowling lane. I will really be surprised if however can tame this beast, can get in the RED Sunday. Whoever, wins on Sunday afternoon will be LUCKY to be +2. GOOD LUCK. This is probually the toughest challenge in golf bar none.

Toms doesn't have the length off the tee though. If you look at his record in majors he has traditionally played best at the PGA, which has historically emphasized shotmaking over length (although clearly that's changing). Still, I do think Toms has one more major in him. I think his accuracy and approach game will keep him in the mix and if he can throw a couple birdies in there who knows?

Man, how could I forget Furyk. He's already got one US and he should have won last year. Forget what I just said about length, Furyk will represent. Manheim PA in the house BOOOOYYYYYEEEEE!

This course fits Jim's game extremely well! Jim always seems to be in the US open on Sunday afternoon, when it counts, down the stretch.

He's not to be taken lightly, very straight off the box, and putts very well on slick greens. He has all the tools to be in the mix Sunday afternoon.

I played in a District Golf Tourney in High School against Jim Furyk. He dusted the field in 1987 by at least 15 shots.

Oh, yeah...early on, Mr. Toms is tied for the lead at -2!

Ok, I guess if I'm going to start a thread to pick a winner just going with a no name does not cut it. So I'll pick Mike Wier, I would have said Tom's but that would not be to fair sense he is 2 under. Garcia is 7 over after 11 holes.

That's pretty cool, getting to play with Jim. I have a feeling the closer we get to 72 those - are gonna turn to +.

This course will tame the field. As Joe would say...the winner is gonna have to fight his guts out!
