Us open starts today
 
Well the open starts and without no Tiger Woods. While I'm not a fan of Tigers I really miss when he is not there because the Tiger factor makes golf more interesting. I'm a Phil fan so I hope he can win his first US Open but its not going to be easy. I'm guessing one of the top players who have not won a major will get their first this week. Here is a link to the coverage.

My money is on Rory McIlroy.

I would not bet against Rory. The long knockers have a good advantage at this Open because the rough is not as high as they have had it for most Us Opens.

I just hope that a U.S. citizen wins. It would be nice to see one of the "Golf Boys" do it. Then they could follow up the trophy presentation with an encore performance.

So far thats a great pick but we cannot forget what he did on Sunday at the Masters.

I was there all day yesterday with some colleagues from work. We had VIP parking and Trophy Club access. What a great freaking time. We walked 3 holes with Phil/McIlroy/D.Johnson, 2 with Jiminez/Sergio/Quiros, 3 with Westwood/Donald/Kaymer, 3 with Harrington/Cabrera/Cink, and 2 with Immelman/Z.Johnson/Schwartzel, and 1 with A.Scott/Bubba/Karlsson.

Congressional CC is in great shape, and we had a blast. Plenty of cold beer and good food. I was about 3 feet from Phil on his second shot on 11. Pretty cool, and the best part was my boss put everything on the black Amex, so I didn't spend a dime.

Oh I remember, I had him picked to win there too. Implosion.

Maybe it's because I watched him live yesterday, or maybe it's just a hunch, but I have a really good feeling that Rory won't implode like he did at Augusta. Watching him put right now for a 10-stroke lead....

Well, another birdie for Rory. He's now tied with Tiger Woods for the most shots under par ever during a US Open. And he's 22. Kid has silly game.

18 is chewing up Rory and Phil right now. Phil's play has been pretty disappointing the past two days.

This hole is the first sign so far that McIlroy is human. Haha.

Yeah Rory lit it up but brought it home pretty crappily there. Gotta wonder how the triple on 18 will hang on him and whether it'll effect him going into tomorrow. Especially if the course is playing hard and he gets to watch a lot of guys get punked early on.

I thought it was a double on 18?

Good job. I had a guy call Monday to go yesterday and if it would have been anyone else I would have gone. I know the guy through work and just could see myself spend 6 hours in the car with him going to and from the event.
