    2008 US Open

    Overall, looks like first round scores are just about right for an Open with the leader at 3 to 4 under par.

    Stuary Appleby is due for a major and this could be his week. He's not someone to take lightly up there.

    Tiger has 2 doubles so far to go along with 3 birdies through 15 holes. He's definitely within striking distance, which was certainly his goal coming off such a long lay off.

    Lefty has had a very Mickelson-like day so far with 4 bogeys and 3 birdies through 14, including two birdies in a row. I like his chances if he stays around even the first round and get to about 2 under after tomorrow.

    My dark horse to look out for - Andres Romero. If he can stay out of his own way, I think he could be a real threat to win this thing.

    Pretty good dark horse. He actually won the the Junior World Optimistic at Torrey Pines a long, long, long time ago. I played in that event that year and I believe it was 1993.

    I won't get to watch any of the event tomorrow, but I can't wait until Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

    Just finished watching Round 2 on DVR. I'm absolutely floored that Tiger is just one back of the lead. What a putting display! Tiger is a little off, as expected, but it's just amazing how he can come back to the game from 2 months off and do what he does. It's just remarkable. I can't wait to watch this weekend.

    This weekend is going to be exciting (hopefully!). I'd love nothing more than to see a shootout on Sunday with Tiger, Ernie, Ogilvy, and Appleby. All 4 are very capable of winning this thing. And Lee Westwood and Luke Donald could be interesting to watch as well. I just hope it doesn't become a 3 shot lead for Tiger after today.

    I've never seen Tiger roll it as well as he did in Round 2.

    You can still see where Tiger is understandably favoring his left knee. His swing speed seems overall slower, more controlled and I want to say more precise. His knee injury and surgery may end up being a great thing for him, as he needs to reign in some precise control with his game.

    Should be interesting today, Tiger should have about a 5 stroke lead by the end of the 3rd round. Let's see if Lefty can bounce back.

    That's something every golfer could probably use, a good dose of remaining in control instead of trying to bomb it.
    I think Tiger is at his best when he's using the three wood a lot.

    What a finish. Tiger eagles the 18th to take a one stroke lead.

    Unless his knee folds underneath him like a chicken leg, I can't see how he gives this one up. I do like the way Westwood is playing and I was glad to see that Mediate came back from the brink of self destruction, but that Tiger fellow is on a roll.

    And Phil, oh Phil. You put way too much pressure on yourself. It's amazing how two out of the three guys at the top all had very low expectations coming into this, yet Phil, wanting so badly to win this one got tighter and tighter until finally spinning out of control.
