  • U.S. Open

    The U.S. Open is scheduled to kick off in the morning. This is one of my favorite PGA tournaments.

    USGA has taken a beating in recent years for the setup and some of their rulings but it's certainly a unique event with the qualifiers involved. Really wide fairways this year supposedly favors the "bombers."

      It'll be interesting to see what Dustin, J.B., Bubba and company do with the wider fairways.

        At the end of round one, Rickie Fowler has a one stroke lead. J.B. is four strokes back.

          Big advantage for the bombers hasn't come to fruition. I like the way it's going though. Hope JB can negotiate Sunday's predicted winds.

            There are four atop the leaderboard heading into round three. J.B. and Rickie are one stroke back. Several of the long knockers, such as Bubba, Dustin Johnson and Rory, failed to make the cut.

                The end of round three finds Brian Harman all alone at the top. Three others (Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood) trail by a single stroke with Rickie Fowler just two strokes back. Several others could claim the top spot if the top five falter.

                  The final round saw Brooks Keopka take home the trophy. The Ky. connection of Justin Thomas and J.B. Holmes finished eight and nine strokes back respectively.

                    I have never heard of the winner. I guess that shows how much I keep up with golf nowdays.

                      Actually, he's not exactly a hh name, Kevin. He plays in most of the tournaments, but doesn't win very many. He does, however, finish in the money most of the time when he makes the cut. I believe he's currently ranked fifth in the FedEx Cup standings. There does seem to be a trend that more and more of the tournaments are being won by lesser profile golfers.
