Question Of The Day

The Kickoff

June 16, 2006

Who will win the U.S. Open this weekend?

A win by Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson or Davis Love would make it a fairy-tale Open, but Retief Goosen's putter may play the big, bad wolf in this version.

For reasons of sheer reputation and sentimental value, many pundits and fans alike pick Tiger Woods. However, the course at Winged Foot demands both exemplary accuracy and putting. Therefore, my pick is Jim Furyk to ultimately raise the trophy.

The real winner will be Winged Foot Golf Club. At 7,000 yards, 6-inch primary rough and greens that are fast and severely sloping, there is not a player in the field who wouldn't take even par for four rounds and drinking margaritas in the clubhouse!
