U.S. Open week June 13, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Sports.

For me, the biggest golf tournament in the world takes place this week in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. The U.S. Open ! What a tournament to win … I can only imagine what golfers must be thinking, standard on the divots of giants, as they tee it up on what is sure to be a super tough and tricky U.S. Open course.

For those of you as mad about the little white ball as I am, check out their website – U.S. Open.com – go to the video section and see what winning the tournament meant to the likes of Hale Irwin and Payne Stewart.

My tip of the week, if any of you fancy a punt, is Vijay Singh at 8 /1 in some places. My heart hopes Colin Montgomerie will break his duck …

And before I forget, best of luck to Pablo Martin Benavides – the only amateur ever to win on the European Tour !

I agree about Monty, but surely after nearly throwing away the irish Open, Padraig has a shot at the title? I read that Tiger considers Oakmont the most difficult course he’s ever played. Will be interesting to see what happens. Supposedly the greens are as quick as snooker tables!

as quick as snooker tables and as hard as the hob of hell ! i dont think harrington has the approach game though … hope i’m wrong – and the golf is back on sky this week

poor payne stewart. i remember standing in the middle of the newsroom watching, fascinated, as TV news tracked his ghost-plane as it flew across the united states.

good thing it landed in north dakota. there’s nobody there who could get hurt.

what a bizarre accident.

yeah sure was. he brought such a spirit and character to the game – some of the guys out there now are like machines. the us wouldn’t have been hammered in so many ryder cups had he still be here, i think
