Key Stats? Woods and Oosthuizen topped the Total Driving category across all 3 of their triumphs. Expanding on this point Lee Westwood, Paul Casey, Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlroy finished in the places in 2010 so it follows that all 4 of these excellent drivers still rank highly in the PGA Tour Total Driving stats 5 years later.
In-truth this is one of the most open, and most anticipated US Open's for a long while.  These conditions are sure to play to the strengths of some European Tour regulars.
Great shots - thanks for that
Just a couple of comments: 1) World Match Play tiring Rory McIlroy - Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood in 2012 made it into the weekend's action at Dove Mountain (McIlroy finished runner up, Westwood finished 4th), flying east and contending for victory at PGA National the week after. Rory won the Honda Classic, with Lee Westwood finishing 4th. He's got previous!   2) A 5th Major Championship - I totally agree. We could do with another Major outside of the US.  China makes...

How can a guy who has won the US Open, PGA Championship and Open Championship by the age of 25 be overrated? He has weaknesses, but so do all professional sports people.  It's going to be fascinating this week to see if he can cope with the really high winds and fast opening 36 hole conditions at PGA National this week.
Love these behind the scenes views. Thanks JetFan.  Although he ultimately couldn't convert (again) Sergio impressed last week in his first US start of 2015.
