I agree. Just because one guy is having an astounding first two days doesn't mean the course is set up too easy. Kaymer is plain and simply playing out of his ass and in my own opinion, has no where to go but down. I could absolutely be wrong and he could maintain a score well under par, but I don't see him flirting with -10 by Sunday.
I agree. Look no further than the 1992 US Open at Pebble Beach where during the 3rd Dr. Gil Morgan became the first player to reach double digits under par in the history of the US Open and eventually got it to -12. He ended up the tournament at +5 while the eventual winner, Tom Kite, finished at -3.
Ya' think? The point wasn't that Kaymer would implode, but that just because someone shoots a crazy 1st 36 holes in the U.S. Open doesn't mean the winning score will be anywhere near that ot that the course is playing too easy.
Look for Poulter, Matsuyama and Kuchar to be there or thereabouts. And I wouldn't be too surprised to see Justin Rose continue to advance.
