FIRST OF ALL, AN APOLOGY. I’m not usually a negative guy, but it’s just too hard to pick a major winner. Last year at Oakmont I picked Tiger and he lost by a shot. I was crushed. (OK, not really.)
Anyway, this year I thought I’d try something different. I’m picking the losers. I don’t like it any more than you do, but I don’t know what else to do.
As for Tiger, I’m just not seeing it. The knee, the layoff, Torrey on steroids, U.S. Open rough − I think it’s too much to overcome, even for Tiger Woods.

Gene Sarazen (Bobbio)
Might Win List
No heavy analysis or stats. All from my gut. Chime in. It’s U.S. Open Eve, and I don’t want to be wrong by myself.

Gene Sarazen won’t win.
You’ve got your neck pretty far out on that one, Bobbio, but OK. 🙂
This is just a hunch and I’ll probably live to eat my words but I think the winning score will be somewhere around -5. I also think that Luke Donald and Justin Rose are two players that bear watching. We shall see.
“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”
Darth Vader is Tiger’s new spokesman.
I’ll go with Stricker, Furyk, Weekley, Flesch, Cink, Mickelson, Casey and Chad Campbell being the big names in contention.
I’ll be pulling for Ben Curtis, since he grew up 10 miles from where I live now.
Hmmmmm, seems as if the nay sayers need to eat their 5 irons…. Tiger, though gimpy did it again…..
Keep hope alive…
Also noteworthy was Rocco Mediate whom no one thought was a contender. He almost took it to Tiger….awesome golf tournament
Yep, I was wrong. I can’t think of anyone who is a tougher competitor (in any sport) than Tiger.
