Teddy Greenstein updates the U.S. Open leaderboard and storylines from the Olympic Club in San Francisco - 6/15
Time now for our coverage of the US open brought you back. The Chicago district golf association there is a tie atop the leaderboard Jim fury and -- Tied for the lead at one under -- in the club -- the one under 69. -- it is still on the course Tiger Woods atop this leaderboard pretty bogeyed 56. And seven he just birdied ten so he's won over. Two shots off pace for the latest but what about hotline Reyes did find golf writer is no simple then he's Teddy Greenstein. -- tiger three straight bogeys in fact I think he three putted from eight feet on one of those. What is your take on how he's looking right now because obviously he's in contention but it looks like as you predicted the other day the flat stick the potter could be a problem. Right I think we may have had a little difficulty. Connecting with Teddy for Olympic club -- get to him as soon as we give him establish. Are you rooting for tiger against tiger actually rooting for tiger you'll have all the violence how you villain now. -- a villain now well and let's say he is or isn't but he was always a guy that. People ran hot and cold yet I I I I understand what happened the that it did transformation for all the love for four. For tiger and how they disappeared after what happened to his life personally. He was selling himself as his clean cut good guy that is great model image so but I I -- I understand people's anger or not one over for tiger longer. He's the greatest golfer ever watched in my lifetime I wanna see him get get to Jack and and pass that record up for for majors never gonna happen. All right let's go to Teddy Greenstein tough kids everything has developed has -- but club. -- have to ask you sat in the studio last week you said the potter is going to be -- undoing needed -- he was putting well up. To be able to win the US open they are you surprised is in contention. Big you think his putting is still a problem. They've kept you -- a good memory but remember stuff like that piece. -- you want to putt well -- and Indy was huge hit they're really cleanly. And so you know he's back after today's collection at the leaderboard even par at the top of the leaderboard crucial for everybody there's. You know just pure mr. consistency you want USO cradle of -- feels better guys and there's a lot for the seventeenth. And then there's tiger show. These guys are targets like that rooting interest doesn't think he's got the some preferably. -- Teddy frankly don't look only look at the leaderboard there under such a mix of names that we know and we don't know what all and a lot of guys that we're following just absolutely blow up. He has toppled about what's -- is it because of the style golf required to be played mirror or what is the reason why somebody's writers seem to make it to the top here. Yeah effort you know it's just an unbelievably hard course shut me Graeme McDowell. Were right now one over and he talked about how brutal it was you can match what the guys feel you're eleven over. Just our direct and to really only 230 holes at one of those birdie holes -- the travel part for the way uphill what we wore out a little spike TV and surrounded by all sorts of treachery. -- -- early to qualify and wanna will play you know 640 plus 72 days. Yeah -- -- she got slippage fairways get fast greens it is. Just a classic. You know rebound by the US GA after -- worry you know dominated. Last year congressional. I -- caddie says Solomon. I I wanted to ask about the course because seems like. Except for last -- like every other year they're complaining about the courses it's too tough to pin placements. Rob rob -- I mean. It is -- it's supposed to be tough it's the US open. That's right Shelley. But bad blow that quote up today and pieces that were from people are you about this I mean. The people who don't like this salad but entertaining to see you know got to make pars and bogeys all day but what we could -- years I think it's pretty cool and you know when they talk about that when it Bears the best players in the world that want to identify the best player in the world. I think that's legit because if you have any let up if you screw up one or two shots you're -- -- It's -- -- the -- I saw yesterday when tiger and and Bubba. I teed off line and then -- -- -- -- on nine is it just me logistical reason behind matters unseating about a hero or read any reason why. Yeah put -- -- story today the eighth green is very close to the clubhouse so so it's just you know I just surrounding issues. They take Frankie what you know one thing we talk about the bars like we see in pro golfers struggling like this. Is and how normal golfer out there would win would shoot it. And I just wondered like say you when your boy Kaplan drop -- have a couple cold -- on this course what kind of score and I expect. -- feel good about about 45 with a computer and that's an and that's without gallery you know without people to play the nationality trust me. Wolves actually reminds you you know after the segment that we did some things. Like this a couple of years ago we we call that the BMW championship challenge that we played. Double -- from pretty far back but not as hard actually could have been had the dreaded you know easy compared to this what. Yeah I I remember we played it it was just after heavy rains -- -- and I would hit tee shots that would stick in the fairway and you -- you look up Goliath the ball pretty good yet to 45 uphill. Into the wind into wet green. And he'd bat yet couldn't break a hundred -- shot -- -- -- nights it was brutally hard Brett misses. Five times harder -- looking at Phil Mickelson will he make the cut. If he's close I mean the cut peaks increasing right now it's looking like and kind of hold her. Eight or nine. Which you know -- that it didn't revert towards Casey Martin if you -- that Nigel. That's going to be incredibly close to play it for weekends -- -- -- scoring. -- right now one of the -- -- and ultra. Forty Scioscia to keep -- -- we'll be solidly at. My last one before we let you go is -- Golfer on the board somewhere that you look at -- you know what this -- had a couple bad breaks but he's hit the ball really well he's putting pretty well. He's staying mostly out of trouble that you could see making a run that may be. You know he's sitting at 45 over par right now three over par do you think has a chance. Yes I mean Graeme McDowell who won a couple years ago it -- pretty. 10 per. David Toms Webb Simpson. Tom Hunter Mahan had a chance -- I've got very culture I mean there are a lot -- quality guys. In that second group think in -- top 25 who were you know only shot or two out you know two -- -- the most Zola. It is actually a wide open and I'm glad I just says screw it right away at this thing. -- -- who's your -- who wins this. Up but that. Webb -- it's.
