    As it should be - the course designers want the winning score to be even par.

    It's the US Open, fer cryin' out loud - it SHOULD be tough!

    minor correction there cRAsH, since Johnny Miller smoked Oakmount in 1973 with a final round of 63, the USGA wants the score close to par.

    I love how the trick up the courses for the open. Does my duffer heart good to hear the pros bitching about how hard it is.
    29 yard fairways - MAX!!!
    13 on the stimpmeter, rye grass in the rough up to your shins - yeah!

    Tiger's -5 and in the dry, while Sergio's soaking wet and having trouble breathing through 7. A double bogey and a bogey, and presto he's back to even. Maybe the clash of titans won't happen after all.

    in full agreement there. as good as those guys are, they need to tighten up the course to find the best player.

    Duval needs some help from the afternoon players to make the cut. he may not be playing this weekend.

    Yeah, but Tiger has a pretty good history of burying people as a front runner. But as we've seen, you can get caught in those swamps they call the rough and lose a quick 3 strokes.
    This is starting to look a lot like 2000 at Pebble Beach...

    Looks like they're trying to be accomodating, besides Woods, there are no complete rounds better than +2 on the day.
