America's Championship is here. Can Phil complete the career Grand Slam? Will Tiger survive into the weekend? What about Rory or one of the other young guns? Is there a darkhorse in the field? Is this Ian Poulter's year to shine? It should be a truly fantastic four days for golf. Here's hoping a playoff makes it 5. If what we're all hearing about Chambers Bay proves to be true, we'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days. We invite you to join the conversation with other passionate golfers while having a chance to win one of more than a dozen really cool prizes will be giving away throughout the tournament. Watch, discuss, and win. It's just that simple. The Prizes: (see the http://www.mygolfspy.com for larger images)
Dates: June 18-21, 2015 Location: Chambers Bay, University Place, WA Defending Champion: Martin Kaymer Featured Pairings: Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera (Round 1: No. 1 at 7:33 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 1:33 p.m. PT) â€” Mickelson is a sentimental pick to finally capture the Open after six career runner-up finishes, including in 2013 at Merion. He's finished second in the last two majors. Watson is a two-time Masters champion, while Angel Cabrera has both an Open and a Masters title. Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Justin Rose (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT) â€” The Masters champion? Check. A Masters co-runner-up and former U.S. Open champion? Check. A guy who could've won both by now? Check. Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen (Round 1: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT, Round 2: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT) â€” Woods draws Players champion Rickie Fowler and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. So, two guys who have won the last three Open Championships played at St. Andrews and the guy the USGA thinks will win this year? Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:17 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:17 p.m. PT) â€” While Scott and Garcia are not playing their best golf, they're compelling players. However, the headliner is Dustin Johnson, who is one of my picks to do well in this Open. Martin Kaymer, Gunn Yang (a), Rory McIlroy (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:28 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:28 p.m. PT) â€” Can Rory McIlroy make it five majors? After thousands of miles of travel in a busy stretch caught up with him, will he be refreshed at Chambers Bay? Martin Kaymer hasn't been the same guy since winning the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. What kind of defense will he have? Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley, Kevin Na (Round 1: No. 10 at 8:50 a.m. PT, Round 2: No. 1 at 2:50 p.m. PT) â€” These guys are all interesting characters, but in the rare themed group this year, the USGA put perceived slow players together.
106 sleeps to go! 106 sleeps to go! I was really looking forward to Chambers Bay being my first US Open experience (spectator, not player, in case you were wondering). Alas, work schedule looks like I won't be able to make the voyage to the Pacific Northwest in time for what should be an amazing tournament in an even more amazing setting. I'm sure some of you have visited Chambers Bay - though it has undergone somewhat of a reconfiguration in recent times. I thought I'd provide the details of what the course looks like now and the changes that have been made: Want an indication of the excitement of the locals in hosting this tournament? The USGA says it normally takes 3-6 months to recruit thousands of volunteers to help conduct a successful U.S. Open... it look less than two days last year for 5,000 people to sign up (registration closed within a matter of weeks, not months). Yeah, the Pacific Northwest is kind of excited about its first U.S. Open! I love the fact that this is going to be a Major on a links course in the US - and that you and I can head along and play this public course at our leisure.
