I know it’s still early, but I thought this USO was going to have a winner at like +5?

Completely out on Phil after what he did at the U.S. Open a few years back. Was out on him at the start, started to like him, and then he did a few things including hitting the rolling ball and bullshitted after that, so I'm fully back out again.

I had completely forgotten about that...I rescind my support.

You’re right, too early...greens appear receptive today. I doubt it’ll stay that way.

I also am expecting a +3-5 winner

If Tiger can go around the course with his patented pull cut off the tee and make some putts, I think he has a great chance.

I am happily surprised on Tiger and Rory.  I hope they can keep that up for all four days.

I would love to either one of those win this week.

I'm actually not surprised about Rory.  He had his kid, no complications that we know of, mom & child are fine, his wife probably has her mom/or other support, etc.  All that frees you up to go after it.  When you're expecting a child, your first especially, it's a nervous time.  I'd say he and his wife have a lot of support around them, and now that the baby is here, Rory can breathe more.  Sleep, on the other hand, is another matter haha.

Tiger isn't so surprising.  I think a lot of the holes favor a pull cut off the tee.  If he has his usual approach play and makes some putts, I like his chances.

After hearing Mike Davis last night, I am not surprised to see a few good scores early. Sounded like they wanted today to be a scoring day. Some easy pins and more receptive greens. Plus they trimmed the rough some.

You got a front coming in tonight. That’s gonna change this course completely tomorrow, particularly the wind and wind direction along with the dry air.

I tried watching on Peacock and the stream was stuttering. Switched to the USGA stream and no problems. Minor, but there's no pause button on Peacock, via a desktop browser. Guessing the source of both is the same, but Peacock is probably getting hammered more? Of all the streaming services, Peacock's interface I like the least.

Rory's score surprises me a lot not just because I figured he'd have lack of sleep from now being a father, but because he doesn't have a good track record on traditional U.S. Open setups, the ones with fast tracks. His one win in the Open came on a slow track. Really his only other good finish in a U.S. Open was a backdoor top-10 at Chambers Bay. Did not see this coming at all.  Really, all four of his majors came on slow tracks.

Wow, players need to stop showing off. All they are doing is pissing off the USGA..😋. Retribution will be swift and telling.

No, the USGA is still a little gun-shy from all their bitching and moaning before.

I hate rollercoaster rounds

He's been off by such a tiny amount on fairways missed.  Makes a huge difference though.  Hopefully tomorrow, he gets that extra yard to hit more FW.

Agreed.

And then he just did that thing again.
