U.S. Open - Bethpage Black
A little soggy for the opening round!
The rough will be super nasty now and the greens should be more receptive. This should be an interesting year.
Who's you choice to triumph and what is their score?
Tiger is the obvious choice! Anyone willing to go out on a limb and pick someone else?
1st choice: Tiger +1
2nd choice: Adam Scott: -2
I will throw out a Geoff Ogilivy, not that far out on the limb though
You heard that guy on Mike and Mike on ESPN radio, didn't ya? Say, didn't ya?
Tiger's opening round was a +4, 74. Ouch!
The leader in the club house is Drew Weaver an amateur at -1.
The leader on course is Soren Hansen is -2 after 2.
Mike Weir is -6 thru 13. Interesting to see where Tiger is after the 2nd round tomorrow and where the cut line will be. He's probably closer than he would like to be. Straight short hitter like Weir could have a definite advantage at the rain soaked Bethpage Black course. Keep it out of the rough and in the fairway and you can score well.
It looks like Mike Weir is going to finish in front on day 1 of the US Open at -6. With Tiger at +4 he is right at the cut line. It is only the first day. Lefty finishes the day in good position at -1 and my other pick Adam Scott is right there also at -1. Geoff Ogilvy is +3. Round 2 on Saturday, my guess is Tiger will make the cut.
In a forum full of advisors, who as a profession, are renowned for golfing, I'm having a running commentary with myself. Oh well, it's not the only thing I do by myself sometimes!
