Add another layer to what already is a different U.S. Open.
Dustin Johnson stood over a 12-foot, 4-inch eagle putt, and the stakes could not have been higher.
This week’s U.S. Senior Open is being contested in the shadows of Notre Dame’s Golden Dome and “The House That Rockne Built.” Players are raving about the par-70 Warren Golf Course, which demands accurate second shots from mostly wide fairways into small putting surfaces. The course was designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw and opened in 2000, but defending champion David Toms says it feels much older.
Kimmel, the GSL player of the year as a sophomore, birdied the last three holes to earn medalist honors by one shot over Davenport’s Kristof Panke, who birdied Nos. 16 and 17 to finish with a 75.
Andy Pope’s persistence getting to the US Opens, Michelle Wie inspired by NBA Finals, Americans go for major sweep at Portrush
The leaderboard next to the 18th green at the U.S. Open again was filled with red numbers under par. The only difference was the scenery.
For three of golf’s biggest names with seven major titles between them, Moving Day at the U.S. Open came and went with barely a ripple.
Brooks Koepka is chasing history, and no one seems to care. Three U.S. Opens in a row. Five wins in the last nine majors. What time does Tiger Woods tee off anyway?
The toughest test in this U.S. Open might be more about nerves from chasing history than Pebble Beach. Gary Woodland held it together Saturday with bold plays and two unlikely pars for a 2-under 69, giving him a one-shot lead over Justin Rose.
Henrik Stenson figured the least he could do after hitting a fan at the U.S. Open with an errant 8-iron was to pose for a selfie. Stenson’s approach shot on the 16th hole at Pebble Beach went into the gallery behind the green and hit a young man square in the forehead.
Tiger Woods knows this as well as anyone: To get anywhere near the leaderboard at Pebble Beach, early birdies are essential. Woods made more bogeys (3) than birdies (2) over those critical first seven holes Saturday, and instead of revving up for another magic run at the majors, he was talking about missed opportunities and the now-fantastical hope of winning his fourth U.S. Open title.
Phil Mickelson failed to drain birdie putts early and self-destructed late to finish with a 75 and another disappointing weekend at the U.S. Open. This was Mickelson’s fifth try at completing the career grand slam since he picked up the third leg at Muirfield in the 2013 British Open. But it looks like he will fall short in his 28th appearance at the US Open.
Patrick Reed flubbed the chip. That lob wedge paid the price. The 2018 Masters champion snapped the wedge over his thigh after leaving the ball in the rough on a delicate chip from right of the 18th green at the U.S. Open on Friday.
Rory McIlroy is sticking around for the weekend at the U.S. Open for a change. After missing the cut the past three years, McIlroy is firmly in the mix at Pebble Beach after rebounding from a mini meltdown on the back nine with back-to-back birdies that gave him his second straight round in the 60s. McIlroy shot a 2-under-par 69 to move 5-under for the tournament and is four strokes behind leader Gary Woodland.
Gary Woodland finished off a bogey-free round by making birdie from a divot in the fairway, giving him a 6-under 65 for a two-shot lead and the lowest 36-hole score in the six U.S. Opens at Pebble Beach. Woodland’s seemingly perfect drive on the ninth hole settled into a deep divot, and he gouged out a shot from 217 yards onto the green and holed the 50-foot birdie putt.
There wasn’t much memorable about a second round Friday in the U.S. Open that left Tiger Woods fuming about missed opportunities.
Jordan Spieth and caddie Michael Greller endured another little mishap at the U.S. Open.
Climbing down a cliff and riding in a golf cart are among the things players mostly need to avoid when trying to contend for a U.S. Open. Francesco Molinari did both in the span of about five minutes on Friday, and a promising ride up the leaderboard turned into something much different. Molinari played his last two holes in 3-over par to drop from second place to completely off the leaderboard, shooting 1-over 72 and finishing at 2-under 140 heading into the weekend at Pebble Beach.
Matt Kuchar’s reputation took a major hit when a story emerged earlier this year that he paid his fill-in Mexican caddie only $5,000 after winning a tournament that earned him nearly $1.3 million. It wasn’t helped by a flap with Sergio Garcia at the Match Play event in March. Kuchar finished his second round Friday with an impressive eagle on the par-5 18th hole, giving him a second straight score of 2-under 69 and lifting him within three shots of early leader Justin Rose.
Sergio Garcia has missed the cut in seven straight majors dating to the end of 2017, and he missed the cut in his two events coming into the U.S. Open. He opened with a 2-under 69, which would seem to be the spark he needed. He just didn’t sound very optimistic.
