Which, by the way, was once allowed. Not sure when the rule change happened, but here's a pic of Tommy Bolt at the 1958 US Open (which he won):

Ha...not sure what is going on here, but I actually know this kid. He is a goofball, as you can see.

LOL....actually, I am about as big of PMick fan as there is....just that those first couple of tee balls were a bit skanky...maybe a bit of reverse jinx psychology??

Every short putt Phil has missed....I saw coming.  Why?  Because it is PHIL!

post #419 of 685
Not saying he'll win. There's a lot of tough golf left. But the field is sliding back steadily toward Tiger. He's T16 at the moment. Was T 50 something this morn...

Yeah, Tigs even par round was actually pretty solid as far as not giving up ground...

I think even par should be a solid round for Saturday and Sunday. Only a hand full of players shot under par today. One of the reasons why I like the US Open. 

post #422 of 685

That's I chose even par as the score to win. Just got the wrong player shooting it (Kuchar).

post #423 of 685

I feel kind of like a hater for saying this, but I'm half-way rooting against Phil. No particular reason other than I want Luke Donald to win. 

post #424 of 685

That sure wasn't a "Phil Round" was it? Fairways n greens? Phil?

post #425 of 685
He must really want that US Open!!
post #426 of 685

I never understood why commentators and such thought Marion was going to get massacred. It didn't make much sense too me, especially considering how high the rough was going to be and the speed of the greens. 

 

Also, it's the US Open, for Christs sake. Mike Davis would import deadly animals and sic them on the players if he could.

You pin the marker down by placing three tees around it so that it can't move with wind or anything else.

Just watching the end of Phil's round, what a competitor!  Great to see him playing well and also good to see Merion is playing tough.

post #429 of 685

We could see a winner at over par.

post #430 of 685

ESPN, Enough with the interviews of the USGA guy or the grounds keeper guy or some other random guy we don't care about!  We want to see golf, not three bald guys talk about Merion.  If you really want to talk, show players golfing while you talk.

If there's no more rain, I agree. 

post #432 of 685

Okay this is stupid - 

 

They got Rich Lerner on TGC reporting live next to the 18th green, just pontificating about Merion. He has to keep his voice down as players are nearby on the green....

 

How about MOVING AWAY FROM THE GREEN?!?
