This is kind of neat...each of the top 9 finishers had a final score (over par) that was equivalent to their finishing position:    

I missed Sectionals by 2 strokes this year.  I summarized my round here, if you or anyone is interested. June 4th is the day for Sectional Qualifying this year.  I'm not sure how many of the 500

Maybe we should merge the "Rude Golf Fans" thread into this one. JT's going to require surgery if he keeps having to pull out of his tee shots.

Second hole in a row where Justin Thomas had to bail on his swing because of some idiot with a smart phone. 

This thing may be over. DJ is not the guy you want to be chasing on that golf course. Maybe some guys in the afternoon can close the gap, but my guess is that DJ is going to have to come back to the field a little this weekend to make this interesting.

Disagree. Disaster is lurking all over this course. You only have to hit one semi-loose shot and end up struggling to make double bogey. DJ has also had 36 and 54 hole leads in majors before going on to be a non-factor. Not even close to over.

Current cut line at +7, DJ at -4 means no 10-shot cutoff to consider, so I expect the cut line to end up at +8 or +9, assuming the afternoon conditions are tougher than the morning.  Tiger almost certainly out of it.

Birdie birdie finish for Tiger.  Chance to play tomorrow.  Second-most excited I've been for a putt by Tiger on the last hole of not-the-last-round but at a U.S. Open.

U.S. Open so no 10-shot rule to consider.  They don't use it anymore.

Right now the projected cut is +9. Tiger at +10 might still get to play the weekend after that finish.

He's the #1 total badass on tour right now and he's looking to add another major to his resume.

This statistic needs to be tracked more closely.  I wonder what the history of the ranking is. ;-) 

But it’s his laidback demeanor that totally makes it work.

He'll probably be playing the weekend. I imagine the cutline is going to move back a stroke or two. Fox Sports is probably excited by that, but he's not going to be a factor in this tournament at all.

With many guys in that +6 range or so just starting or have yet to start I would expect the cut line to drop back to +10 and Tiger will make the cut.

A little surprised scoring not a little bit better. Scoring conditions are pretty easy. Greens are really soft and wind is light to go with really wide fairways. Jesus what would happen if they let these greens get hard and fast like they usually are?

It's going in the other direction. Gone from +9 to +7 in the last hour.

Nice round by Fleetwood.

IMO, the best thing that can happen to this tourney from here on (well, other than Tiger rising from the dead tomorrow...) is for DJ to blink and few other put up some red numbers (Rose maybe??) give everyone close some hope tomorrow for some excitement so that he can trounce them late Sunday afternoon. 

If not, this will be a snoozefest.

It looks like there are 92 players ahead of Tiger, so he needs 32 to drop to +10 out of a group of about 60 that haven't finished. Sounds tough but I count 29 that are between him and +6 yet to finish.

    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
    • At the state government level, states can certainly do this, although several have banned covid passports. As to private businesses, the EEOC has already said that the private sector can require vaccinations of their employees, so there’s no real need for a passport. As to the federal level, I doubt Congress would pass legislation mandating passports because public health and safety largely falls to the respective states. Moreover, the White House is on record stating that there will be no passport mandate via executive order or a passport database.
