Will Tiger Woods win the U.S. Open or will someone from the field step up? The CTL panel previews the major event - 6/13
Let's move to the US open we have a chairman at golf expertise covered sport. For a long time the Olympic club will be quite a -- that read an article today that said. Many experts believe we could see over par win this event do you think we'll get to that. Who could there's and it's gonna be you know those first few holes are gonna be about as hard as any opening holes of the US open. Last year Rory McIlroy I think one at sixteen under so that would be quite a swinging Iowa's all time record. They'll be quite a swing it over par one usually remember all over par. You know a few strokes over par even par wins the US open so it's playing as hard as they say it's going to be could be you know quite an ugly. The event to watch this week but relying. -- -- playing hard because the length and or there or real player on -- way to narrow the green it's I don't think it's overly line although they have a ridiculous like 690 yard par five or something like that. That they're saying you know basically. And not exactly sure why you have a hole like that it's gonna take forever to play. You know it I think par fives are exciting like Augusta we didn't know Rihanna -- score to beat a two shot par five I don't think. If there's anything exciting and a 690. Our -- a year players complain. About the US open course from Bubba Watson is a guy this year than a lot of attention. And yet you hear guys like Mickelson thing okay that experience talking to you have to expect this is. This -- national champion right as solid as can be fast. You know those greens are very tricky there it's going to be it it's just the way the open is set up. And the guy he'll Nicklaus whose to say the guys who if you heard guys complain about to say well I eliminate that guy eliminate that guy he -- on those guys complain because. He knew they -- talk cannot talk themselves out of it before the tournament started. Is it in the PGA tour is best interest to have guys shoot 161718. Under when a tournament it's -- fan interest. But it's not really necessarily in the end you let it in that while the different tournament to have a big effect and you have 1 boy -- -- that right to have one tournament like this that's known for this I think it's -- I think people like to see these. I struggle out of -- golf freak and I will watch as much of it and I can't I love me and I'm like how would love to see -- rounds. I know but I for one week if you don't -- the winners at four over. I would think that's pretty cool I -- -- these guys want to win and their plane and a classic classic golf world where every major should be like yeah I mean that's why it's considered a major -- into a different personality will never be my best and can't be that way because it's set up traditionally can be like that because the conditions haven't they what they think that the conditions kind of dictate the scores they don't try to mutilated of those British Open courses you now. Cut ties Scott walked over there that's great I had -- half. You have right now I have so that's like. It's awesome it's unbelievable in my point Sanders -- to play. I turned area played royal -- from I think where the -- commissioner nineteenth hole there a couple times but never very good and so it's not you know it's just different kind of golf and it's a lot of fun. It's totally annihilated the ball bounces all over the place I love it I think it's great I knew it was over here over the. Do you think it would be good for golf. If it was tiger and Phil coming out of the final process or do you think you'd be better for golf if or Rory McIlroy just wins again because he is the emerging knew what I mean I. Talking about -- that I think it's at some point in their careers it would be great to have tiger and Phil come down. Played each other for a major hasn't happened it happened so much -- Arnie and Jack and with. You know and will Nicklaus and Watson and Sam Snead and Ben Hogan never happened with. They I don't like the pairing of tiger Bubba and Phil I think -- US open it's hard enough. Without it being circuits I don't get rid of I had. Brave dog although this is not random and how they do period they have my only thought that he left a lot of -- -- TVs -- made for TV Pamela Phillips that. Because it's a zoo out there -- this and it's the things doesn't -- the service Bubba Watson are ready it's kind of like. Struggling with this from the spotlight when you go. Tough -- that may not even play college ball -- think it's it's just you've been out there you know what when those guys are on the course. They're together especially together it is a zoo we added a bunch of garbage that's ridiculous unassisted it is this. Early public Prague Oklahoma City to be quietly so much earning a number problem and that's what I'm just not tiger though that day. He he gets -- -- he tweaked his back he was complaining about. There's somebody taking a picture during his practice and those guys he's -- stop that's talking to my legendary and not just a mentality with golf it's not the candidate can consider it a free throw it in game seven can't even. I think you know people are running around trying to get position -- going to the next call the guys I feel bad for the guys who before him and before that group and ethnic group. I think the guy before and they won the players in the group in front of them is Kevin Matt. Who remember from the players championship. Couldn't bring the club back. And now again this guy's gonna have massive galleries -- were playing slow and people are gonna be I -- like it's going to be an absolute zoo but he's a professional golfer he has a professional golfer so he did. You cannot -- -- quote comes out flat on our Mets roster with a professional catcher to and he still had trouble had -- yet. I mean to have this yeah guys they understand that you want to have you can read about now I have -- you wanna have a level playing field. You don't put those three guys and I completely disagree of course it's entertainment. It's all about selling the sport. I can't wait until you learn -- watch yourself in the same conversation did much entertainment. They would have the course designs -- -- shoot fifteen under. Because you entertain I don't know how you're you're there. Now well I'm not entertained by -- I watched tiger won you recommend boggle tiger drill bogey and a good for golf for for my girlfriend continuity to tell me yeah I -- triple bogey because he's. Got the ups nobody if you told me. It's that difficult a hole that's what it led to the it -- I -- I think tiger triple bogey I think people liking that because then it's like he's human and it and I would hate it. Yeah one terminal we panicked but we kind of feel like they're like us they have kind of plain -- other courses we go out -- -- -- 120. You know they're shooting 75 at least is kind of they resembled the struggling out of the rough. You haven't putts roll eight feet past the hole you know that it's finally hitting it got a little. You definitely have dissent if you can get past the first couple of contact. You know I think that kind of -- with the -- is Jason Duff and our. Was kind of the US open kind of player I run reservation is just won twice to ask him to win three times in his short time about Adam Scott. And skeleton of the guy I was looking at insisting that it's going to be you know I mean whoever would have picked Graham McDowell few years ago. You're the one guy one pick is tiger I don't think that he. You know he's only -- when people say he's back yet he's back he's Beckett courses where he's won and had great success. He typically even though we've won three US opens to a -- one on courses. Where he played you know we had great success at Torrey Pines Pebble Beach. And so he typically has not been a great US open player and courses where he didn't already have a track records.
