US Open .......... Looks like

Pressure is starting to get to the leaders. The course and conditions have not changed much, so they are feeling it!


Agreed . . . Poa greens do get hairy as the day wears on

but the mistakes are being made on approach shots and off the tee.

From here on out, a scrambling par will be as crucial as a kick-in birdie . . . It's going to be a Great Finish!!!

Woodlands 3-wood approach on par 5 14th was gutsy and brilliant . . . Just off the green from 267 yards.

You are right on the money. Poa greens do tend to get a little funky after a lot of traffic, but it really hasn't been the greens. Putting has actually been pretty good except for the 2 footer that Adam Scott hit six feet past the hole! The leaders need to start hitting fairways. There have been some phenomenal shots from the rough, but you are not going to get balls close to the holes from there.


What a chip by Woodland on the 17th green!!!!!!!
