Six 2nd place finishes! I gotta believe within the next few years Phil will kiss the trophy.

It better happen soon then, because at his age, the statistics are against him.

This.

 

I really think that Marion might have been his last shot at one. At his age, it seems like it's going to get tougher and tougher to win one. I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled it off, but I'm not going to bet on it either.

I really believe he will.

I feel like he has 2 or 3 more to get it done. Its just so hard to win in your 40's especially after 45. I'd like to see him win one this year. I hope he gets it done but Im one of the guys rooting for Tiger to get to 19. So maybe I'm just happy to see to of the best ever reach their goals.

I agree it better happen soon cuz Father Time is against him. Mickelson sounds pleased by Callaway moving center if gravity back towards face in metal woods. Physical and mental ability, technology, sheer determination, and a little luck - let's hope they all work in sync for Phil to come out in top!

I said yes ... mainly because I really would love to see it happen.

Same here.  Next four US Open are at:

 

Pinehurst

Chambers Bay

Oakmont

Erin Hills

 

I'm not that familiar with Erin Hills but Pinehurst and Chambers Bay are going to be much different set-ups than what we're used to seeing at US Opens.  There's going to be no rough at Pinehurst and CB is a links courses.  Not sure if this helps or hurts Phil, even though he doesn't hit a ton of fairways he's done well on "traditional" US Open set-ups.

I think he's mentally ill, flurting with the nice guy puritain type, he is a no winner. just a nice guy that destiny fails to acheive.

 

no chance !

I would like him to, I wish he would, it would make a great story line, but when it comes to majors, no one is a shoe in any more....and I mean no one.

Because I don't think he will win the U.S. Open to complete the career grand slam.

 

:)

 

I typed that so you'd get the auto-response email. I know what you're asking. Namely, he's too old. He's running out of chances. He may have been close in 1999 or whenever, but where was he the last time when Michael Campbell of all people won? (Barely making the cut after a second-round 77, that's where.) And this isn't going to be the same old Pinehurst.

Oh great Swami I would say Phil has prepared his course strategy already and will be well focused on his goal. This is his legacy! He won't let it slip away.

I say yes. Picked Phil to win it this year in the 2014 Major's Prediction thread a2_wink.gif

I would like to see him win it, but sadly, I doubt he will...just a gut feeling.
