2018 US OPEN

Wind, hard greens, one HAS to hit spots 3'x3'?!?!?! Yeahhhhhhhh, NO. Ain't nobody breaking 100. They've already proven that years ago with the Golf Digest/Golf Magazine sweeps. Play Monday, Pros tees, break 100. I think one guy did it in all of the tries. If a Top five golfer in the WORLD shoots 80, NOOOOOOOOOBODY on here's breaking 100.

Now, get off my lawn!

Anybody want a #SpyStaffSlam Update?

 

Ok, here's a quick #SpyStaffSlam update.

 

 

Apologies but I won't have any advanced analytics available this time around. Being out of town means I was unable to handjam the picks before the US Open started. This way might be better anyway because, while stats are sacrificed, it's less work.

 

We had about 820 entries but I'm sure roughly 10% will be DQ'd for invalid or duplicate entries. This means it's a smaller pool so your odds just got a little better. As we learned from The Masters, you're dead without the winner unless something crazy happens. Out of the entries, here's how many chose from those currently near the top of the leaderboard:

 

[1] DJ - 200++

[3] Hoffman - 96

[5] Piercy - 2

[3] Poulter - 59

[1] Rose - 194

[1] Koepka - 27

[2] Fleetwood - 129

[1] Stenson - 29

[4] Henley - 43

[1] Fowler - 97

 

[Tier]

 

 

 

Aside from DJ, JR, and TF, this is a pretty scarcely-chosen leaderboard. If you've got a name up there, you've got a shot. Still lots of golf to play so let's see where it goes from here! I'm just happy all 5 of my guys made the cut.

I'm pretty sure Mark Wahlburg broke 100 a few years back on a US Open course within a week of the tourney and he is a 10 handicap who doesn't play the ball down regularly.

Just because its hard doesn't mean its impossible. It's just golf. Hard golf but golf all the same.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I can do it. I probably couldn't unless I played well. Especially on the first try. But that would be the way to go about it if I had the bet!

 

Yea... Cooley can put his money where his mouth is on that one! lol

He's letting his ego get the better of him.

 

Edit: Give me like 5 chances and I think its a sure thing :D

Yep. I like your chances one out of five for sure. Yep he's an ex NFL plauer, so of course there's going to be a lot of bravado. I just think he's way underestimating how quickly he or any 7 cap could get sideways from the Open tees and to have the touch required to save bogey when he misses those greens on the wrong side.

 

I'd be interested in watching him try.

You sure you aren't thinking of the Foreplay podcast from Barstool? Those guys don't take a whole lot serious.

NLU's podcasts on the other hand are generally interviews with everyone from Rory, to Azinger to Bones, Spieth, JT or golf writers. They are pretty serious about the game and provide some nice insight from the pro's perspective.

I think the NLU podcast dos a great job. The interviews have been really good. It is nice to know the players a little better.

Finally caught up and two thoughts.

One you could take the guys that missed the cut and start another tournament and have a huge draw lol.

As for the weekender breaking 90 under tourny conditions. Go buy lottery tickets. You'll have better odds. If you've ever had the chance to play any course that is tournament ready, you'll gain a lot more respect for how good these guys and gals are on tour compared to us.

Having said that, I'd love to try lol

If we had thousands of people looking for the wayward tee shots, we could stand a chance. I played my old stomping grounds yesterday, I lost 3 balls that should have been just 2-3 feet off the fairway. Quite annoying, round destroyers.

Not being cocky. But if I wasn't injured. I'm Betting I could break 90 from the members tees there

Under normal conditions I would say yes. Under these conditions I would take the over.

Are we talking about Undershooters chances of breaking 100 or 90?

 

He's breaking 100 every time if he plays smart and 90 most of the time - like 80 percent.

 

Tony Romo did in fact play one of the open courses from the tips at Bethpage Black. Golf digest had a contest to choose a 10 handicapper who would try to break 100 with the course set up open style the week after the Open itself. He played with 3 celebs, Matt Lauer (no comment), Michael Jordan and Romo.

 

I don't recall what Romo shot but it was around 80 and perhaps he broke it. I believe Jordan shot in the 90's while Lauer and the lucky winner who was quite ill (dying of cancer) were just north of 100.

 

I know this because I made several cuts but missed the final 12 whom readers voted for when they determine that my handicap was too low - they wanted someone close to a 10.

 

At any rate I had my strategy in mind - I was going to find the longest course that I could and work on playing all Par 4's over 400 yards long as if they were par 5's and laying up on par 3's short of the trouble and thick rough.

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.

I heard they were considering making all New Yorkers wear those Dog Bark Collars, that shock the bejesus out of you every time you make loud vocalizations.

I like the idea - better than wrist bands.

Yeah. Just so I'm clear. I am not comparing Undershooters chances to 7 handicap radio jock. Not by a long stretch.

 

I agree on your assesment of his chances.

 

Yes, it was Bethpage, I was referring to, not Torrey. That's so cool you made so far.

 

They should have picked you. Imagine the story line they could habe used, saying you'd need some Devine intervention to break 80 or 90. Ha

You don't have to mock me. I was hitting the ball better than I ever have earlier this year.At last give me some credit buddy. Let's just say I would do my best from the senior tees to break 90.If I hit it well and tried my best.If I failed then laugh as much as you want.But what if I did ?

Keep it in the short stuff
