Rocket Mortgage. When I first heard of this new home lending company, I chuckled... who in the heck would/could do a home lending process on-line. Everyone should have to go through the traditional process of meeting with a bank loan officer and going through the drill - right? Times sure have changed . The tour moves from CT to MI and the Detroit Gold Club. To be quite honest, this course is one I know very little about but it has been there since 1899 and, during the heyday's of Motor City, was the place to be a member. Ok, I'm just going to come out and say it... this is the ugliest trophy on the main tour...come on Rocket Mortgage, up your game . Last years event was another of the early swoled Bryson overpowering courses frenzy, capturing the attention of the golf world. Clearly we now see distance alone is not the answer but the want for it has definitely increased as a result of his focus on this part of the game. Somewhat of a ho-hum field absent of many big names, the odds are high that we'll see someone from the middle of the pack hoist that gorgeous piece of hardware . So who's it going to be this week?
After a brief walk in the park at The Palmetto Championship at Congaree, the field moves to Torrey Pines for the 3rd major of the season. The 121st U.S. Open. Often cited as the toughest test in pro golf (depending on course and conditions), it rarely disappoints. An event anyone on this forum could play in (well, technically ). The qualification rounds are grueling and every year we hear of "no names" getting their chance at becoming a Cinderella story. Will Phil chase after a putt and take another swat before it comes to rest? Will #1 Dustin Johnson make the weekend play? Will Major Koepka dig deep into his "I'm mad at the world" locker and get his pound of flesh for his runner-up performance at the PGA Championship? Will the defending champion have both distance and accuracy off the tee, simply out distance the field, and celebrate the win by filling the cup with an ice cold Michelob Ultra? Personally, I'd love to see an underdog win this years event... a lightening in a bottle 4 days of stellar play by someone very few are expecting to win. Who are you picking?
