    Who ya got this week?

    Obviously the favorites are poised to have a good showing, like Koepka, Tiger, Rory, etc.

    I look for Cantlay to build off his Memorial win and have a nice showing in his home state.

    I'd also like to see Phil in the hunt on Sunday trying to close out the career Grand Slam.

    But my pick to win: Jordan Speith.

    In order:

    Molinari
    Xander Schauffele(sp?)
    Tiger
    Cantlay
    Koepka

    Also want to see Phil win his US Open finally. Would be cool to happen at Pebble..his grandfather caddied there.

    Xander is another guy I am expecting a solid week from, and a least a top 15 finish.

    Split tees at Pebble usually means an uneven leaderboard until late in the day. That front 9 plays a good bit easier than the back.

    Koepka said he is not comfortable with the greens at Pebble, we shall see. He definitely has been extremely good in majors.

    Rahm birdies at 10, 11. 2 under thru 2...He is a back nine starter.

    Scott Piercy 5 under thru 6. Dang.

    I dont expect him to win, but JB Holmes is always the guy I follow being a KY and UK to boot guy.

    Koepka has been filthy so I enjoy "rooting" for him, but Im totally a bandwagoner in golf. Just give me the drama of an epic finish.

    Rahm to 3 under thru 3. Those are 3 pretty tough birdie holes.(10,11,12)

    If Mickelson can’t win, I’m pulling for Abe.

    Dustin just hit a "once in a bucket of balls" shot...heavy rough way left of #8 green to 2 feet. A 50/50 shot of keeping on the green.

    Is your team's quarterback interviewing the golfers after they finish?

    Louis Oosthuizen holed out a bunker shot to finish tied for the lead at 5 under.

    Tied with Schauffele, R. Fowler.

    I saw where Kisner 4-putted from FOUR feet yesterday. Wow.

    Went from having a 4-foot birdie putt to making a double.

    Aaron Wise has serious game. I don’t think he wins this week, but I believe he can win majors.

    I missed Spieth's weird sequence...why was his approach his 4th shot? I missed a shot in there somewhere. Unless the graphic had a typo.

    Man, Tiger is about 2 inches off on these birdie putts.

    And that spin from Koepka was something else.
