Saves USGA from massive embarrassment
Later Tonight: A Lanny H Golf panel will discuss “What makes D.J. cheat so much?”
Legal Experts Suggest D.J. invoke “oscillation” defense
Result Hinges on Decision of Russian Judges!
Who will the judges decide deserves the trophy? Time will tell. Lowry and D.J. must now try for style points as well as pars. It is mandatory they impress the judges.
Rumors are circulating that Fox Sports is involved in this situation — with the motive of boosting ratings! Stay tuned…
Dustin Johnson allowed to move ball out of deep rough!
When reached for comment, Lanny H responded, “What’s next, letting D.J. tee the ball in the fairway? Grant himself gimmes?”
A Sign For Sergio?
Could this finally be Sergio’s year?
Finals Thoughts Before Go Time
- Why does Fox show graphics in lower right corner all the time except when they show three guys sitting behind a desk?
- Why did Faxon gratuitously mention Woods in a story about Nicklaus having nothing whatsoever to do with Woods? (As I type, Buck makes another gratuitous mention of Woods. One more and I’m going to the movie theater.)
- This gallery is horrid. They are doing their best to ruin Oakmont. Remember the Irish Open when a guy yelled out, “In the hole!” A true golf fan shouted back, “Off the course!” We heard no more foolishness out of that American idiot.
I realize they do these things for financial reasons, but it sure is a long wait for the leaders to tee off. I’ve learned to skip most of the early coverage to avoid burnout.
Nothing against Lowry — he is one of my four picks for who I’d like to see win — but an early triple bogey would sure spice things up. If Landry can win, the Miracle on Ice will be replaced in American sports mythology.
Landry Birdies His Last to Make Final Group!
Four back, but he’s in final group. Lowry will probably have to stumble, and he’s a solid closer, so that is not super likely, but, hey, there will be heavy pressure this afternoon. Sergio didn’t so himself any favors this morning.
Lowry with a comfortable lead, so it will take a stumble to bring most of the chasers into the mix — barring some kind of Johnny Miller closing round by one of them. If Lowry plays solidly, only half a dozen player have much of a chance; if Lowry stumbles, some twenty players have a reasonable chance.
Clarification: I’m not saying Rory playing round one in the poor weather conditions is the major reason he missed the cut; I’m saying it is the ONLY reason.
