    That pic of Lefty is classic as it gets. What is he thinking?
    Exactly what he told everyone: ‘I am so stupid’.

    Rahm is good at guessing. I think it was at Jacks he said the winner would shoot -10 under. He won at -9 under despite the ball moving penalty at 17.

    I do think the boys will shoot lower this week than previously at Winged Foot. Lefty might beat his score from last time.

    One thing:
    Tom you say 1 par 5 on the front, the 9th at 565. But the 4th is 567. They playing that as a par 4 also? Typo? What’s up?

    Personally it doesn’t seem too long for these days. It’s all about this rough. They need to maintain it penal as can be to maintain the reputation of Winged foot.

      Typo, will correct, the 4th will play at 467

        A US Open par 4 at 567 wouldn’t sound so crazy anymore.

        Btw Phil used the word ‘idiot’ back in 2006, not stupid.
