Ummm, I think that the lack of gravity might get to him, if the gasses didn't, first.

Forebearers often catch a lot of KaKa from those who remain timidly behind. I'll come out on the side of the Blazers on this one. Without water, with what can Oakmont defend? Rough, furrowed sand bunkers, length and fast greens.

Unless you want to abandon all these great old courses, you have to allow for these ramparts. Unless you want to go to all the great new courses because they play 7600 yards long, you have to allow for these bulwarks.

Grass is green.

Umm... did you read the USGA blogs because their two bloggers seem to be rooting for anyone, but Tiger Woods? After Round 3, they can't root for Zach Johnson anymore because ZJ had a fit with the USGA..

Golffan, the USGA bloggers are the peasants of the organization. They don't have to answer for the crazy setup. The bigwig blue blazers need Tiger.

The US Open says it provides the sternest test of golf...

The USGA makes the greens so ridiculously tough that great putters lose their competitive edge. Ball striking is the number one priority, and that is why you have mutts vs pedigree's competing down the stretch at the US Open.

America was founded by the mutt, and that's exactly how the USGA wants it.

Well, those 2 guys at the USGA blog are plenty happy about Cabrera's win especially when they were writing that they didn't want to see anyone win, but TW.

Why does the USGA seem to prefer over par as the winning score as opposed to the British Open and USPGA?

I meant to write in the previous post that those USGA bloggers didn't want TW to win, but rooting for anyone to win.

Chrissy, when you bend over. You probably wish Tiger is standing behind you with his pants down. You sound like your his biggest fan.

Chris said: He's just that good.
The shame is in the era when the USGA leaders have turned majors into bores, they get bailed out by Woods' historic brilliance.

Well he wasn't that brilliant really. He did play very well though, and he might be starting a run to try to catch Jack Nicklaus historic run of 17 major 2nd places.

RON-MON.....a 'lack' of gravity on Jupiter??? According to Wikipedia, Jupiter's surface gravity is 2.33 times that of Earth! Just a suggestion, but you may want to stick with golf writing/blogging...and leave the "science" stuff to others! ;)
