Re: US Open predictions
Tiger is definitely locked and loaded too.
He was hitting drivers 345 - 350 on the range, flying them 325 when I was watching him Tuesday.
The course is in perfect shape. The brown spots you see on TV are no problem, they play no differently than the rest of the course. It's pretty tricky to get the course to peak at the right time, especially with the weather we've had in the sandhills this year.
The greens on 5 and 13 will be very interesting to watch all week. Tuesday, they were mowing, rhen rolling, then mowing again and a USGA official came out and stopped them on 13. It's already rolling 11.5 on the stimpmeter. That's about like putting on the hood of your car and stopping it at the hood ornament.
You guys come on down, we're having a hell of a party here this week.
