There was something unusual in the opening round of the U.S. Open. A bunch of scores in the 60s.
What, no ankle-deep rough? What kind of U.S. Open is this? A course with no tall, gnarly rough seems almost unheard of.
It seems like just yesterday when I was here, in 1999, when Stewart won an electrifying U.S. Open. Four months later, Stewart and five others perished in a plane crash.
Mickelson’s manager confirmed Saturday that the investigation was the same outlined in reports in several newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal.
When any player goes on a birdie barrage at Augusta National, it’s exciting. When Bubba Watson does, it’s downright exhilarating!
Bill Haas made a statement with his birdie on 18, and then watched from the clubhouse as Bubba Watson put on a clinic, despite the wind picking up Thursday afternoon, making conditions trickier.
Tiger Woods is on the sidelines. The last two dozen majors have been divvied up among 21 winners. Good luck making sense of it all with the Masters beginning Thursday.

Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time on the strength of his five big wins and return to No. 1 in the world.
Webb Simpson had six birdies over his last nine holes for a 5-under 66 that made him the clubhouse leader at The Barclays.
From an operations standpoint, there is ample space in the state park for hospitality and other structures that have turned the Ryder Cup into the biggest show in golf.
Adam Scott, Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar were the closest pursuers, while eight other players were lurking within five shots of the lead.
If you’re a golfer chasing that first major title, you’ve come to the right place. The list of winners at the PGA Championship is filled with guys who were once in your spiked shoes.
It’s great to see the 2003 U.S. Open champ’s name at the top of the leaderboard. Furyk is too good and has been in contention too often not to have won more majors (despite his painful looking swing!)
When Woods is on, most of his fellow competitors are intimidated. None would admit it, but even solid top-10 golfers seem to lose their confidence when Woods is on. Mickelson is not one of them.
