    Shinnecock is making some fools look like weekend hacks.

    Spieth +4 thru 9
    Mickelson +4 thru 9
    Matsuyama +4 thru 8
    Bubba +5 thru 11
    Day +6 thru 11
    McIlroy +7 thru 9

    I like it when US Opens are won with an above par score.

    I thought about asking for it to be pinned but I didn't want to be presumptuous.

    I 100% expect to see Rory hammered at Guana Banas Saturday night trying, and succeeding, to forgot this nightmare of a round.

    A little U.S. Open history. Three time U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin was also a two time All Big 8 defensive back at Colorado.

    The good news, there are 17 holes left.

    If there are any Oklahomans in the field, put your money on them.

    Was out there all day watching my boy. That course kicked my ass just walking. He played really well today, had two dubs, but managed +6, beat Rory, Phil, Day and Spieth in his first US Open. That course is absolutely insanely hard and the wind was kicking everyone’s asses.

    Hearing greens on Sunday will be like playing on a marble counter top.

    Crazy..was watching a segment on Golf channel about the 7th hole debacle in '04. They said they will never lose the course like they did that yr. They better not speak so soon.

    If you project four over as median again tomorrow he still needs great round (enough to be leader today)
