    Not sure about karma considering all Rahmbo had to do was take a covid vaccine in a timely fashion …but it certainly was redemption.

    It was hard to see Rahms or his boy Phil actually winning this thing; both stories would be too amazing too be true.

    But Jon’s redemption story did come true.

    Torrey was a great course again for the Us Open. It was a tough test at -6 under (I predicted -5 under) but more importantly it gave all sorts of players a realistic chance. Young guns and old journeymen. Bombers and plotters. Strikers and putters. Big names and no names. Every style had a chance.

    It’s fitting in the end it was a polished, well rounded player like Rahm whom did the job. Rahm is not the longest. He is a great wedge pleater and a clutch putter.

    The big man made a big time mistake at Jacks place but he incredibly redeemed himself.

    The only other story of note was Oostheisen, whom again, as he had at the team event, blew it with driver despite his flawless swing.

    The brooks Bryson thing is a non issue. People are getting clicks by comparing who has finished higher between the two in the last 15 events. Who cares?
    That’s not a significant way to measure a golf rivalry. Brooks hasn’t won a major in some time now. Bryson has. If these two want to be a significant rivalry they need to stop acting like teens and start acting like golf legends.
