This US Open track looks like a monster from what I've been able to see on TV and read.

Tiger will not be the only player in the high 70s/low 80s

I'm guessing lots of links style 30 yard putts from off the green, unless they wet these greens they won't receive even high shots

I'd say based on that that Spieth has a great shot again.

But I'm still picking Rickie to win......

I'm not too sure about this track as a US Open venue
Firm/fast is one thing , but these putts are wobbling all over the place.

....


1. I was looking at the score card, since when did they start make holes like 540 yards par 4s? I realize all these pros have more distance, but are they just doing this to artificially make the over/under par scores seem worse? Used to be around 500+ was the cutoff for a par 5?

2. Am I the only one sick of opening a sports page today and seeing a big picture of Tiger and a headline talking about him struggling and no mention of the actual good players? Tiger sucking is not news, it's the norm now. Tiger has become like the Oakland Raiders or Washington Redskins, a full trophy case, but currently the image of ineptitude. He's not a story anymore. We know he sucks and nobody thinks he will contend.

This course where they are having this US Open is the strangest damn golf course I've seen.

So far the Open has been entertaining

DJ can completely overwhelm this track if the weather is benign

I still don't understand the desire by most amateur golfers to arrange that trip to the home of golf. I hate shit weather and enjoy playing golf in it even less.

Phil looks like he is going to get into contention

ESPN doing an exponentionally better job than FOX did with the US OPEN. Tirico at the point is fantastic. FOX needs to never cover golf again.....ever.

Jordan Spieth is one stroke behind going into the final round with a chance to win his 3rd major in a row.

Come on its the home of golf.. bucket list things to do.. plus the weather is not always like that..

I lived in Germany for 14 years and never went.. Now that i am back in Italy.. and 54 yrs old its going to happen real soon.. going to Ireland for 4 days in Sept. (birthday present to me) Then in the early summer off to the old course for 7 days of golf all over the place..
This will be my last chance to go before i PCS back to the USA.. Plus logisticaly its way cheaper for me to go now..

You should go if you can...

Great round by Z. Johnson...Speith and Day played 17 too conventionally for the situation and hit poor approaches on 18...that was the difference. Oosthuizen made a great charge.

you could look at it like that... but i look at all 18 Jordan played on Monday.. The 4 putt on a par 3, mishits, missed putts that he normally makes..

I am sure he is tired from being on the road, back to back to back tournaments.. living in hotels, shitty sleep paterns etc.. You can blame all sorts of stuff..

I sure give him credit... he is one hell of a 21yr old.. If america only had 25 million like him... well i wont go there....

Fuck Yeah!

I won 2 tickets to the Masters next year in the lottery!

Booked a Hotel room already, my and my Brother (Orangesteel) are headed down there for 5 days to play some golf and attend the Friday (2nd Round)

So excited, definitely something that both of us wanted to do at least once.

Any recommendations are very much appreciated!

The Masters!!!!!

Could make a good movie out of his story.

And some good theater with Spieth hitting a couple great shots including that ridiculous shot out of that bunker to keep himself in contention.

Jason Day broke Tiger's record for lowest score ever in a major.

Spieth is now ranked #1, the second youngest ever to have the #1 ranking (behind Tiger).

So if Day wins the tour championship, does he get player of the year over Spieth??

No, at this point, nothing can negate his majors performances...

Spieth may not be willing to leave it to chance....... only a couple back and playing well at East Lake

Despite Rory's apparent disinterest in the 10 mill, I have a feeling he's going to get it going and win this thing.

Spieth's CADDIE would rank #39 in earnings if he were a PGA player:

And if Spieth ever gets hurt he can work as Vince Vaughan's stunt double.

I'm a junkie and it's raining here so I'm watching President's Cup

Really bad timing for this event coming right afret Tour Championship, hard to imagine the guys getting up for team competition, but they are actually playing well.....good matches

Definitely like the Korean fans appropriate applause and genuine "aaah" after good tee shots as opposed to beer soaked jackasses in the U.S. feeling they didn't get their money's worth unless screaming "you da man!" Or "get in the hole" after every shot.....

Interesting article about the "bug" in Speith's swing actually being a feature:

http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/12/tiger-w ... od-at-golf

Kind of consistent with the "square to square" pop up adds you see all the time.

Yeah he is pulling his lower half through with very passive hands...

These Texas players can flight it and can get up and down out of a garbage can......

But make no mistake about it, the difference between Spieth and the world right now is how he rolls it. That kid damn near makes everything he looks at.......

Rory better get back into the fray soon......

Jordan wins again to kick off his 2016, dominant again at Kapalua (place looks incredible)......

Kid is just in a different zone right now, fun to watch
