    **OFFICIAL US OPEN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP THREAD**

    Let me be the first to say I'm rooting for Dustin Johnson. He looked very good last week.

    Can't wait for the action tomorrow. Phil, Tiger, and Bubba all in the same pairing and tee off around 9:30 central, and Zach tees off around 10.
    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-

    What score wins it? I'll go with -3.

    Spliff...you may be close on the score. They set the course up to be very difficult. A lot of players are very unhappy about it.

    On second thought...I bet the winning score is Par for the weekend.

    I think -3 will be an awesome score with the length that has been added to this course.. Olympic is a tough course. IMO if anyone finishes below par wins..

    It seems like one player always plays out of their mind and has a good tournament. I think -5 is the lead going into sunday, ending with -2 as the winning score. This tourney doesn't set up well for Zach Johnson, but does well for lengthy hitters like Bubba and DJ, however DJ's short game is sub par (pun intended) so I don't think he will be in contention.

    I like Dustin Johnson, but he may be too long for this course. Hitting fairways is uber important here. Not enough to just be straight, you've got to be able to shape shots to hold the side-hill lies.

    I'm going to go with Hunter Mahan. -3 to win it.

    Even par will be a great score. The experts are saying this course is really, really hard.

    Listening to the 19th Hole yesterday,the panel did not think that the course really favored long hitters. The one guy kept saying that everyone was going to be in the rough,and laying up often. They felt the short chipping and putting would be the difference.

    Sleeper picks from the three panelists:

    Zach Johnson
    Ernie Els
    Aaron Baddley

    Overall picks from the three panelists:

    Stricker
    Kuchar
    Woods

    Woods is the only real bomber in those two groups of picks,so I think they really believe that length is not of supercritical importance here. Of course,the 670 yd par 5 and the 246 yd par 3 make it somewhat important,but missing on the right side of the green is ultra critical. Gonna be fun. Go Zach,Go Tiger.

    Phil's swing coach was on the SVP show last week and said that Phil wouldn't be hitting a lot of drivers on this course. I would imagine the other long hitters will be going with a similar approach. I expect to see a lot of 3 woods off the tee box this week.
