It was returned just recently. Some guy donated it back after buying it

You gotta love Phil's attitude "I want to have fun" and I certainly agree! I am a Tiger fan but question if he enjoys the challenge in each major he faces.

Lol @ Rory bending his club.

 LOL at Steve Stricker ( I mean "strick" as he is now known since Tiger sucked up to him a few years back on TV and called him that).

Dufner might win it all!

Yeah, every time I say somebody might win, they blow up.
Mahan might win.
Mickelson might win.
Donald might win.
Rose might win.
Day might win.
Schwartzel might win.

Now let's watch everyone blow up.

Some pretty rough front 9s by the 3rd round leaders so far-

 

Phil- 2 doubles

Horschel- 4 bogies

Stricker- an 8 and two bogies shooting 41

Charl and Luke Donald- 42 each

 

Makes the 35s by Rose and Day look all the more impressive as well as Dufner's 67 with a triple.

So, basically, what that means is that your winner is coming from one of the last 4 groups.

(I realize I'm not making any bold predictions here ... just trying to look at it scientifically)

Looks like you're going to be right.

That was a fantastic US Open. An old architecture, rain soaked, sub-7000-yard track requires a +1 score to win.

 

Well played and well deserved by Justin Rose. 

post #537 of 685

Now all they gotta avoid is some nutjob running out to do bird calls during the trophy presentation.

post #538 of 685

Did Tiger win?!?  It's all about him!

 

Seriously though, congrats to J Rose.  Apparently, ball striking does win a US Open.

post #539 of 685

Props to Jason Day for being a true class act sticking around to congratulate Rose. Day always has a good attitude and always seems to be there in contention at the majors. Hope he gets one soon. But congrats to Rose, well deserved. What an incredible 4 days.

So how long before he becomes "Sir" Justin Rose?
