Hopefully the decline in golf's popularity will make it enjoyable to play again. I agree with Nicklaus...no good reason to not get around the track in three hours. This six-seven hour round of gold shit is ridiculous.

Congratulations, Dustin Johnson....

I imagine the after party is going to be a bit more subdued than in years past...

Played pretty impressive golf today.

Could have streeted this field if he had a warm putter for the last 36

Bubba looked like he went walk about for half the round. Sometimes he looks like he gets bored with what he is doing.

Read that Michael Jordan is so pissed off about slow play he's going to finance and open his own club with limited invitation only membership and strict slow play rules.

Tiger still gets way too much attention for a 20th place alsoran at +1! What will it take for him to ever get attention comensurate to his current performance?

Nothing against him, in fact I would love it if "Good Tiger" came back and won another major-it would be interesting if he won 1 or 2 more at least and challenged Jack, but it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.

Well he did shave off the goatee, he was looking like the bad Mr. Spock from the alternate universe for awhile there, now he's looking like the "Old Tiger", if not exactly the "Good Tiger".

One of the ESPN talking heads, don't remember who? Made a good point. Tiger went off track pretty much when his dad died, he won majors for 2 more seasons, then totally derailed.

Tiger is playing very well. I think he will eventually win two more Masters on muscle memory. He could win three tournaments this year based on current form.

He did play well, surprised me, for 90% of golfers playing the Masters at -5 and finishing 5th (or whatever) might be a career highlight. Who knows, maybe he does still have a shot at a few more majors.

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.
