US Open live thread (Saturday)
n/a ^ | 6-15-13 | n/a

Posted on 06/15/2013 1:35:38 PM PDT by FlJoePa

Anyone out there want to follow along and comment? Just an awesome venue. THIS is what a US Open is supposed to look like - both on television and on the leader board.


TOPICS: Sports
KEYWORDS: golf; open; usga; vanity
Before the round I picked Schwartzel at -1 as the leader going into the final round.

Typical Philly fans yelling "fried chicken" all day long at Sergio. I don't really get the hatred for the guy. I guess it's just the Tiger fans that just seem to want to be idiots.

Phil is struggling. Tiger is struggling.

Merion is obviously winning. Again.

Been watching on an d off since Thursday..one thing for sure..NBC's coverage absolutely sucks..compared to ESPN..we have a great day today, superb weather, tight leader board, and they give us endless stupid clips and multiple commercials..

NBC worships Tiger like MSNBC worships Obama, and both are in the crapper..

Way too much Tiger, given his place on the leader board. I don’t much like either nbc or espn’s coverage. I will defend Johnny Miller though. At least he’s been there, done that, unlike fatass Berman.

This course should favor Steve Stricker as predicted on the day one thread.

Watch Jason Day from her out. Young, fearless, strong...pretty cool guy too.

Tiger is a hot mess.

He needs to get back to chasing hookers.

Phil...should have not missed as many short putt, relatively, that he had yesterday...cannot miss those scoring opportunities. His game is off today and his score reflects it.

Should be interesting tomorrow with tight pin placements. If the wind ever comes up, could be a plus 4-5 winner.

Luke Donald has perfect game for this course. Stricker also.

Maybe he needs to find his “blood spinning” doctor. Wouldn’t be surprised if his name came up in the Miami MLB investigation that’s about to blow wide open.

Currently only 8 players are under par in their 3rd round. Five are at 2 under in their round for today with several holes left to play.

Schwartzel does have the game to see this through. Still a long road ahead though.

Another bogey for Tiger (5th in 12 holes) - doesn’t stop nbc from showing it though.

I hope Ernie can somehow make a few birdies coming in and get within striking distance tomorrow. People talk about Stricker and how this course was perfect for him....ehhh...it’s actually perfect for a guy like Ernie who hangs around and allows others to destruct around him.

Golf actually does well on radio - provided there are good announcers.

Jason Day tearing up the back nine. Schwartzel still looks like a winner to me. But we’ll see.

Phil with back to back birdies all of the sudden. Back to even 2 shots back. Go Lefty!

Back to back birdies for Phil, he’s back to 1 under. Hopefully he stays hot on the back nine.

Go Phil!

Love to see Phil win - so deserving of it after 5 runner-ups.

Stricker another good guy and in the mic=x, too.

Anyone but that lying (steroid) cheating Weasel Woods.

Sergio just managed a 75 with a 10 after being heckled by tiger fans all day.

Whatcha got tiger? Besides a bunch of bogey holes left.

Agreed...I most always root for Phil, he's a class act and gives back to the game and fans, Stricker’s a good guy too.

Rooting for Phil or Charl Schwartzel. I wish Ernie was a little closer, but you never know. He is always my choice in any tournament.

Exciting tournament and electric atmosphere at a perfect course for this tournament. Can’t ask for more. Even non-golf fans will be watching (without Tiger - imagine that)

Is it ok w/ everyone if I start another live thread tomorrow around 1PM? Don’t know the golf ping procedures. Don’t want to step on any toes.

Still no hole in ones ever at a US Open but Francesco Molinari and Brian Stuard came close yesterday..

2:02 p.m. – A loud roar comes from the fans around the 13th green as Francesco Molinari, brother of Eduardo Molinari, who won the 2005 U.S. Amateur at Merion, nearly holes his tee shot.

http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2013/06/15/news/doc51bb4f7c950a7089254196.txt

Stuard dropped a wedge within about 6 inches of a hole-in-one on the 113-yard hole and tapped in for a birdie, the last of his four for the tournament.

I think it's the same group that heckled Colin Montgomerie. They know Sergio is childish and they can get under his skin. Too bad since Sergio is one of the best tee to green players ever. So was Montgomerie.

Is that the same one that mentioned LeBron of the Miami Hoodies?

I would like to see Phil or Stricker win. Anyone but Tiger would be good. NBC even did a short piece on his girlfriend.

Well, they got rid of Fuzzy, next up Garcia or anyone else who gets in Tiger’s face. There is a CBS announcer whom he would not let interview him too, forget his name.

Ken Venturi died recently. I recall him doing the Tuscon Open I think when the crowd moved a boulder so Tiger could have a clear shot. I thought Venturi would come unglued in the press box over that one and I said to another fan, there goes his job as an announcer and what to my wonderment should happen, he was not renewed shortly thereafter.
