Default U. S. Open

The next biggie coming up this week.



Easier to predict who won't win for sure. My list of favorits who won't.


Tiger
DJ
Koepka
Spieth
Thomas
Day



Favorites who could.


Kuchar
Simpson
McIlroy
Molinari
Rahm


Been so many of this season's winners who have are the underdogs, there's no reason not to think the open will come from that group.


But, I'm going with.


A. Scott
Rose
Finau
Schauffele

Why do you think Koepka wont win? He has won the last 2 PGA Championship and the last 2 US Opens and tied for 2nd in the Masters.

Pretty good looking lists, Dogz. Though, I would put Koepka on the possible winners list, myself. I also am secretly rooting for Mickelson. The dude never wins it, and is always a bridesmaid.

How can you not like Tiger at Pebble Beach? Johnson is due, Keopka seems an odds on bet in any major now. It would be good to see Spieth get back into the mix too.

The odds of Koepka making a three-peat are so low it's easy to pass on picking him. Living up to the hype has doomed many a player. Yea, the course favors Woods type play but probably not Tiger his self.



The weather has now become a serious factor. May become a game of survival rather than birdies and eagles. I'm wondering if there are any potential eagle holes? Four under should place a player on the leader board Sunday afternoon.



If any of you are thinking it might be nice to play Pebble Beach one day, you'll need to cough up $550 per round.

Willie Anderson is the only player to three-peat and that was in 1905. It is said that he drank him self to death in 1910 at the age of 31.

Somebody is due, Koepka is as likely as anyone with the run he's having. I bet the ball sitting on the tee looks as big as a baseball to him. Not likely he'll 3peat, but no less likely than most everybody else's chances to win it.

Been close to it quite a few times. But never played it.
Ex's g-ma was at Carmel by the Sea for a lot of years.
Loved that little town.
Hiked up the beach to see how close I could get, but never set foot on Pebble.

The pool I am requires one to pick 4, one alternate, and then someone with over 100:1 odds for a combined score. So...

Rose
Fowler
Day
Fine

Alt - McIlroy
Longshot - Keegan Bradley

It was only $50 when I played there in 1976. Sounds about right with inflation. It was a drought year and the course was in horrible shape. Much preferred Cypress Point over Pebble Beach.

I'll be rooting for Tiger and Fowler. If the weather is turning south I'd take a consistent grinder, over a guy who runs hot and cold. Koepka can definitely grind, Tiger used to be able to grind, maybe/hopefully still can. I like Rose in bad weather. If the weather is good Fowler was hot last week, don't like him in bad weather though.

I'll be keeping an eye on Oregon State's Spencer Tibbit's the first couple of days and seeing if he can make his way through to the weekend. After that, I'll be hoping Koepka can win another one and shove it down Brandel Chamblee's throat.

I was away and had to DVR most the match. Last couple groups just Teed off and I'm not staying up to watch. Schauffele and Fowler at this point. Can't believe all the birdies today. No weather to contend with. I won't be able to watch much Saturday or Sunday.

So hafta hike up to the local waterhole to watch it on one of their multi tv sets.
Doesn't matter. Lefty is gonna make one more comeback and put the whoopin' on the whole crowd.
And we can all quit being so antsy and go fishin'!

Koepka off to an incredible start, applying some serious Sunday pressure to Woodland and Rose. Shaping up for a good finish!

Looks like Woodland is on 18th now, if he holds par he has it in the bag.


congrats.

What a day!!! Great win by the guy who earned it.



That chip on 17 by Woodland had to be the best shot by anyone for the tournament. He had the same shot a day or two earlier but this one turned out better. Birdie on 18 was sweet.


I think Rose was more disappointed than Koepka. This will eat at him a long time.

DZ, that shot at 17 was unbelievable
The best man won the open for sure, finished -2 in his final round after leading coming in.
Koepka, although having a good day was not happy with his game in the last few holes and it was apparent. I wish I could read lips
Rose had a bad day it was visible with him covering his mouth after missing a putt on one of the last holes ("F" bomb?)

D4D:


Gary's ability to put spin on the ball with such a short shot was the key in keeping the ball close to the cup or even on the green for that matter.


A golfers vocabulary isn't meant for TV. Broadcasters don't keep a live microphone very close to them during play.

DZ, they tapped in on the conversation on the setup on the last holes but on the final putt...silence

The replay of woodlands "chip" off the green to get over the ridge , WITH a backspin to get ? 6' or less from the cup was great!!

Woods ended at -2 good for him

I gave golfing a try long time ago. Only mastered two clubs, the 8 and 9. I sucked. Got to thinking about how much time and money it would take to get reasonably good and decided I didn't have either in enough quantity.



I've liked Golf since I was a kid. Marveled at those who were good and the entire atmosphere that surrounded the game. I'm not a team sport fan, like to see individuals rise to the top. Golf, Tennis, Track & Field, Trapshooting, you get the picture. I sucked at Tennis too. Was better than average at running but that's not saying a whole lot. Probably made it to the top 5% in Trapshooting. Pretty much sucked at any sport but never kept me from trying and having a good time doing it.

Woodland took control and never really swayed off his game............

Hell of a way to finish it out on 18............
