It’s about that time again to talk about the US Open. This year’s championship will be played at the famous Pebble Beach in California. If I had to pick anywhere to have the US Open it would be Pebble Beach. The scenery is absolutely beautiful especially the 18th hole that runs along the ocean. It has the white sand traps and amazing views wherever you are on the course. I hope to one day be able to play Pebble Beach. Phil Mickleson will hope to continue his Masters success and continue his run at a grand slam (winning all 4 major golf championships in a row).
Now there are a few questions that people will be asking about this year. One of them is will the weather cooperate this year unlike last year. For those who don’t remember last year was a very wet weekend which had many off their game and multiple rounds being played in one day. Will this weekend be nice for this year US Open? I sure do hope so.
Another question will be of course how Tiger will do. A couple of weeks ago Tiger withdrew from a tournament complaining about back problems blah blah blah. I can’t see Tiger doing well this weekend in fact I’m pretty sure it’s a lost year for him, that’s just my opinion though. He really hasn’t shown any type of dominance in the little he has played this year and I don’t expect him to show it this weekend. The US Open is known for higher scores due to the long rough and slick greens. He certainly has the ability, but don’t think he will show it this weekend.
One other question that comes to mind is will Robert Garrigus carry an extra pair of pants? For those of you who don’t know what I am talking about Robert Garrigus was the golfer that had a 2 stroke lead going in the final hole and gave it up by triple bogeying 18. However he is also the golfer who had HUGE swamp ass. Literally it looked like he decided to sit in a puddle. If you want to know what I’m talking about just search for it you’ll know what I’m talking about.
I can’t tell you will win this weekend and I really have no idea who will play well this weekend. I’ll give the usual names that I always look for and that are Mickleson, Furyk, and Woods. I’ll give you a sleeper pick and no it’s not you Sergio, but Justin Leonard. Why you ask because his name jumped in my head and I got this feeling that he might do well. Alright have a good weekend.
