    Default 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach Discussion

    Phil Mickelson was, as they say, en fuego today. Shoots a 66, and it could have been even better. He's 2 off the lead of Graeme McDowell. Let's go Lefty!

    Tiger struggling. Gotta wonder when he'll get it together? May be a year away from seeing him in top form?

    Or maybe just a few minutes. 31 on the back nine and 66 for the day. The three wood from behind the tree on 18 was just sick.

    Mickelson matches Woods sick shot with a ridiculous iron of his own on 18, but he shoots 7 shots worse than El Tigre on the day.

    This tournament has gone crazy if anyone's watching. Dustin Johnson had a 3 shot lead going into the third hole. When he left the third hole, he had no lead at all after an ugly triple bogey. Tiger has started off erratic, with two bogeys and has had to struggle to make two pars as well. Mickelson has been dialed in with everything other than the putter,and he's within 3. Ernie Els is one shot off the lead. This is nuts.

    Johnson followed up his triple with a double bogey after losing his ball. And now he's just hit the ball literally off a cliff. The wheels, they are gone. Meanwhile, Ernie birdied 6 to get a share of the lead with Graeme McDowell.

    Watched the entire last day. Ridiculous. First of all the place is hideous. Secondly I like too see good players make great shots not great players look like every high school friend I've ever golfed with. Greatness is much more preferred to watching guys limp across the line reward safe shots....blah...waste of 6 hours lol..

    For my part I have been watching all the tournaments every weekend and I was getting rather tired of watching people win tournaments with 18 unders. Ssixteen year olds in contention on the last day. Young twenty year olds eating up easy courses (for pro's). Why? Because they hit it long and just have to get it up and down as the greens were easy. If you could grip it and rip it fairly straight and make easy putts for four rounds you had a chance.

    This tournament is a comapre and contrast. Grip and rip and make fairly easy shots doesn't work here. This is the US Open at Pebble Beach for crying out loud; it always plays this way. Fourteen and seventeen have tortured golfers for generations. You should have to scramble, and make perfect placements (espcially on 14), and have perfect shot making/shaping ability. It was cool to hear what kind of shots they had to make, and go OMG after hearing it, and then watching them hit those shots. WTF.... they are amazing. It truly showed the golfing difference between us and them. When it came down to it, you had the best player this year so far, and the number one and number two in the world, all in the top three groups. That suggests good players making good shots, the winner has game and pedigree, and one WTF guy in the frenchman.
