    the Open has been tearing up the field up. Zach Johnson was tied for 11th @-3 and now after +5 sits in a tie @46th at +2
    the leaders are just Teeing off the leaders didn't Tee off till after4 o'clock so there was very little to post.
    Tiger has had 5 bogies and 3 birdies, hitting the fairways but has put his shot to the greens into very very long grass around the grass, the announcer have commented on how the grass around the greens are the tallest and roughest that had ever seen on Pebble Beach. oh well its the US Open and they have done their best to keep the scores down today.

    it started the day with the cut line @+2 with 46 players under par so far there are down to 31 under par.

    How far off the pace is the great Eldrick Woods?

    he started the day at E and ended the day at E in spite of a very erratic day,

    Woodland is having the best tournament of his career sits -10, at the start of the day there were 49 players under par as of now there are 26 players left under par Tiger as moved from a tie for 32nd to a tie for 27th.

    Zach Johnson went from a tie for 11th @-3 to finihing the day @+3 and # T-49 . the rest you can look up yourself as I am no longer watching it today/night.

    I think Koepka still has a 50/50 chance of at least a tie for first. He has yet to put one of his great rounds together. The law of averages says he is due. 4 off the lead.

    Agree. Woodland has not shown the ability to close on Sunday and rose will be solid. For the record I would not mine seeing woodland win.

    Remember when some folks were saying Koepka wouldn’t contend at Pebble Beach because it wasn’t a course he could just overpower and outmuscle? Lol. People are gonna learn that if it’s a major championship and Koepka is healthy, he’s about as much of a lock as there is to be in contention on Sunday.

    rain has helped in keeping the greens soft and slow, there are only 26 players under par after there being 56 players under par. the US Open started playing like a US Open.

    today could be interesting as there was no rain last night by reports so expect the greens to firm up and get faster.

    now my question is can Woodland post a 4th round of under par golf. very few can in a major let alone the US Open.

    Approach on #11 for GW? I've been in that rough(not as high of course)...I don't know what planet he is from.

    Also he chipped in from off the green..forgot what hole and what round. Edit..12th on Saturday maybe.

    yup he was +4 thru the 1st 6 holes then went -6 thru the next 12 holes to finish @-2 for the tournament, currently Tiger after only 9 events sits in 17th place, the leader Kucher has played in 17. currently is ranked 5th in the World Golf Ranking, yeah I can see why you are laughing @Tiger,
    its because you hate him so much and know nothing about Golf.

    Well, it WAS enjoyable to be able to watch the final round of the US Open without having a permanent mobile of Eldrick walking to the tee box, scratching his ass, and going to the loo, while the talking heads endless make excuses for why Woods isn't at the top of the leaderboard...

    If Woods was 4-5 strokes back, Woodland would have had half the airtime.

    Woodland won his very 1st major and played the best 4 round in his career. congrates to him for him for golfing as well as he did in a event known for not having many golfers under par let alone how low he was. enjoyed the golfing that went on in the US Open has it did not embarrass the golfers like it has in the past.

    try enjoying it rather than taking pot shots at Tiger, face it if Tiger is 3-4 strokes out of 1st in a major in which he has won 15, he will always be shown and talked about. so get over yourself and deal with what happens concerning Tiger. geez he is only 42 years old.

    Looking forward to seeing how Ok State golfer Viktor Hovland will do as a pro. He is expected to turn pro soon. He set the US Open amateur scoring record this week at 4 under.

    Gawd, you're a child. "You're just a HATER!!!" That is something a ten year old says. Grow up.

    I make nothing up. When Woods is on the front page of the leaderboard, he gets FAR, FAR more airtime than anyone. Everyone knows that.

    as he should as he is chasing Jack's all time record of 18 majors as Tiger has 15. so like it or not Tiger has earned the coverage he gets.

    also since you don't like it, call the media and USGA and PGA and demand that they do as you tell them to do their jobs and see how far that gets you.

    its not over kill its called RESPECT something you know nothing about.
    Tiger has earned the Media's and fellow Pro/Amatuer golfers RESPECT. look the meaning of the word then try to use it.

    Great tournament. I couldn’t look away. Congrats to Woodland. He really held up well under pressure.

    Gilligan is unhinged with his Woods pole smoking. Any dissent equals hatred. He really needs help with his emotional issues...

    its better to respect him and what he has done for the game than to continually trash him.
