Not to disregard the Crown Plaza, Memorial, or St. Jude, but I would like to get rambling on the US Open. It’s always a favorite major and always highly anticipated. Watching some highlights on GC of past US Opens makes me really excited to watch the best players in the world struggle to break par. It makes me feel a little better about my game (I know, I know it’s not even close to the same conditions. Let me dream). Watching the 2002 US Open highlights with Sergio in Titleist gear really brought me back. He was so much cooler back then. Anyway let’s get this discussion started.
Who’s your pick for the winner?
I know Duffner has a hot hand, and I would love to see him win a major, but I’ve got a feeling Nick Watney will come out on top.
What’s your favorite previous US Open?
I have to go with Bethpage. It’s so cool to see the pros play a truly public course
Have any of you ever been fortunate enough to play Olympic Club?
That course looks amazing. Robert Trent Jones Sr is one of my favorite architects and I love that he has a hand in this tournament.
I’m excited to hear your thoughts and even more excited to watch the drama unfold.
