Not sure if Bubba has the emotional control to make it to Saturday. Only 1 over but his body language tells another story on the green.

...and he rolls in a 15 ft birdie right after that comment.

I have never been more torn for deciding a winner for this tournament... However I believe that there will not be a new rising star to come from this weekend. Not because of the abilities of these players, but because of the course. The fairways bounce like asphalt and the greens are quick as quick can be. This leads me to believe that these guys have to be creative this week. I'll be glued to the T.V. all weekend and probably be yelling a lot more than I should at the little white ball!

Been watching it this morning online...... would like to see Jason Day do good.  Hope he is over the dizzy spells he has been having and puts on a show.

Chambers Bay is not your usual US Open type of course.  I like it that the fairways are plenty wide and the players have shots to the green without having to chop it out of thick rough usually found on USGA setups.  Get to see some excellent shotmaking!

A lot of players on the course are playing some really solid golf to start off the tournament.  I think its true what a lot of the pros were saying, if you put the ball in the right spots off the tee, you can really go after the holes. 

Driver- Titleist 913 D2

3 Wood- RBZ Stage 2

Hybrid- Cobra Bio Cell

Irons- Wilson Staff Tour V6

Wedges- Titleist Vokey 54/58

Putter- Cleveland Huntington Beach #1

I love the week of a golf major! The experts spend hours debating and discussing and they still don't have a clue who will win. I hope Phil can complete the career grand slam this week. He is a classy guy and is a great ambassador for the game.

My wife says she feels like a single mom during the week of a major. I think there is something in the air that make a golf fan a fanatic during a major.

I found this article today......did not know that an Alternate Candidate could not play the course.....I think that is a stupid rule.

 

 

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – USGA chief Mike Davis made headlines a few weeks ago when he said that U.S. Open success would come only to those who became extremely familiar with Chambers Bay. Those showing up and only playing a couple practice rounds will not fare well.

Clint Rice was out for a casual practice round Tuesday with fellow Aussie Geoff Ogilvy, trying to gather course knowledge until his clubs were confiscated by a USGA official on the 13th hole, according to a report from the Australian AP.

Rice, No. 1188 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is an alternate after attempting to qualify last week in Ohio. Alternates are not allowed to play a practice round although they are allowed to use all tournament practice facilities.

A USGA official told the Australian AP that Rice had been given information that told him he was not allowed to play Chambers Bay.

“It's a big silly if you're not holding anybody up or interfering with their practice,” Ogilvy told the Australian AP. “I'd get it if there were no spots available for players in the field. But this wasn't the case here.

“It's a shame because we were having a good time and he seemed like a really good bloke.”

Rice did not give a comment to the Australian AP.

 

Ahh crazy. My buddy Andy went down to caddy for him too.

Very enjoyable so far.  I hate to say it but as much as I disliked Greg Norman as a player, more because he was the most over rated athlete ever than anything else, I'm enjoying him as a color commentator.  He certainly understands lots about the perils of playing in a major.  :)

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Chambers Bay reminds me of The Open championships where the wind will determine the difficulty of the course. 

 

Am I the only one who can't tell the fairway from the green? I swore I saw Stenson on a green but it turned out he was about 100 yds out. Maybe it's the fact that I'm watching on my phone at work instead of a HD TV...or maybe it's the fact that I had a Long Island Ice Tea at lunch instead of my usual sweet tea.
