PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Shaun Micheel knows what he'll do with the ball he used to make a double eagle Sunday. "I've got it hidden away in my secret pocket in my golf bag," he said. "I'll probably give that one to my mom." Micheel's mother, Donna , is in the final stages of liver and brain cancer. "I'm really playing for her," the 41-year-old Micheel said after shooting an opening-round 69. Micheel topped that Sunday by recording just the second double eagle in U.S. Open history.
