The 116th US Open - Oakmont Country Club

From the PENS Stanley Cup Championship and parade to the 116th US Open at Oakmont for a record 9th time, The 'Burgh is buzzing with activity.

They get started in the morning. Lookin' like the weather may play a factor tomorrow.

Who ya like? I'd like to see Bubba. His length takes all of the fairway bunkers out of play. It's just a matter of if he can hit the fairways and keep the ball on those greens.

Gonna be a fun tournament!

Bubba is a solid pick! I like Dustin Johnson. After coming so close to winning it last year, I think he gets his redemption this year. He's also been playing pretty well this year, although he's had some issues closing tournaments out.

I'll be there tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it.

I don't even know if he's playing, as I don't follow golf much, but McIlroy seems like a good dude. I'm pulling for him.

I think golf is better when the same few players contend in all the majors. I'd like to see Spieth or Day at the top of the leader board.

You'll have fun. Dustin is another good pick.

I went down this past weekend and the course looked mean and ready. That rough is unbelievably thick and high.

I have some very fond memories from '83 and '94. Freddy Funk was an absolute hoot in '94. My father in law and I were walking up along #2 and here comes a ball into the rough right by the rope we were walking along. Noone else was around. My fil says lets stand here to see who is coming. Well here comes Freddy and his caddy. He walks up to us and asks us if we seen a ball come up this way. We said, yes it is right here. Mind you, the ball is sitting in 2 ft high rough. He looked at us and said..."What the frick do I do now? You guys have a weedeater that I could borrow?"

After a few good laughs, he hit the ball back out in the fairway, told us Thanks for the laughs, and proceeded on with his round.


ps: he didn't say frick, but I had to clean it up for here.

Adam, Rory is playing. And you're right, he does seem like a good dude.

Actually, I have yet to meet a professional golfer or professional bowler that weren't great guys to talk to. Never played golf with any of those guys, but I spent alot of time bowling with some of the professionals at the pro-ams in Harmarville and Erie. Just down to earth guys.

I like both of them as well.

There's just something about the unorthodoxed way Bubba pounds the ball around a golf course that I like to watch.

That is scary!
He's a bit older, and his game seems to be falling off, but I always thought Phil seemed like a decent guy. Wouldn't mind seeing him get a nice major win.

Would like to see Dustin Johnson close in on a Major.
