U.S. Open

Postby ATX_Skins » Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:36 am

Is anyone else excited like I am to watch Tiger, Bubba and Phil all playing together? Bubba won the Masters, Tiger looks strong and Phil is always Phil (any given tourny).

I am pulling for Bubba because like him I have never had a lesson. I have always liked Tiger though too.

Never liked Woods much. Seen him be horribly unsportsamanlike in person way too many times. The two clinchers for me werr:

1) him purposely damaging a green at the Open right around a hole. The act was worthy of instant DQ at any level. They played it on Sports Center once and I've never been able to find it since. :hmm:

2) the Thanksgiving debacle. I know it has "nothing to do with golf" but I'm sure no one here would cheer for him if his wife had been your sister. It's just a matter of where you draw the line.

Jumped and roared when Y. E. Yang stuffed that 3-metal to 4 feet a coupla years ago. Nice to see someone rise not wilt in Tiger's face. You see what Rickie Fowler did to himself last week paired with Tiger?

As for the Open:

Odds To Win 2012 U.S. Open (6/14/12)
Golfer Odds
Tiger Woods 6/1
Rory McIlroy 10/1
Lee Westwood 12/1
Luke Donald 12/1
Field (Any Other Golfers) 12/1

Just as in the Masters, the field looks like a good bet to me.

I'd root for Rory... If only.he was from.the REAL motherland! Northern Ireland should be cut off and shipped to the queen to rid the land of its filth!

I kid I kid don't pee southlondon...

Seriously tho TW is almost back to form. People blame his home.life w the.misses pills whores etc etc etc. Everyone forgets he last won the open w a torn ACL and.mcl in his left knee. He imo HAD the best swing ever to grace the sport *see 2002 etc.
Thing is a child hood injury to his left knee was being attacked by his swing year in year out. Finally after claiming another.major limping around, he had surgery. Well ill tell you being scratch when I tore my right ACL.mcl that its no joke coming back. On top of that he had to change his swing ; from the best there ever was- to what? Something that his body can do for the rest.of his career. Name another golfer in the elite category who has done similar? Nope. Even Jim loopteelooo hasn't changed. Phil plays lefty even tho he is a righty... Change isn't easy, but two weeks ago and on Easter TW has shown that its something he can do. Because he is THAT good. Tied for 2nd all time PGA wins w Jack, but ten years younger then he did it, and behind only four majors.
Will he win? I hope so... He might not. But he will win majors again there is no doubt.

Remember, only half the population of Northern Ireland are settlers from the invading force, the other half are pure Irish.

Rory is one of our boys. McDowell isn't, although he's happy enough being called Irish in the U.S as that gets him more goodwill.

Ha ha I know... But they can't be true Irish supporting the queen that killed their kinsman and land their great great greats settled..
My grand father is from Ireland he was a stubborn old man. The Scottish and northern Ireland are Irish- never the other way around tho them is fighting words! Course they aren't "real" Irish either. Or some crap.
Golf. I like it even tho it came from the scared Irish that settled in Scotland- lmao

I'm rooting.for TW or Fowler, hope the course starts biting them all tho. One or two scores at par or under is fun to see in the pros

DM's pick of Furyk at 30-1 looks good so far...

Furyk is NOT a closer tho. No way he wins this event, probably ever. Has he won ANY major? Maybe he got one on Tigers vacation.

BOM Tiger style! My dawg is hungry and I just don't see anyone that can match his talent, under pressure, for a major.
