I have never been more excited going into a US Open. Part of it is because I am going, but mostly its due to the way the top players are playing. You have Els, VJ, Phil and Sergio playing at an extremely high level right now. Best of their lives you could say about all of them, which is real unusual. Then the whole drama with Tiger and his swing.

Not ready to make picks yet, but think Sergio is real locked in right now.

I see Duval is actually going to play. Dont expect anything out of him this week, but interested to see what happens throughout the year. Just cant believe he is going to pull a Baker Finch. Think he can come back.

I also think Sergio is one of the most unfairly maligned players in the game. He is just a kid. 24 years old. Has accomplished a tremendous amount. More so than just about anyone at that comparable age (with the exception of Tiger).

Has won several tourneys, both here and abroad, and has contended in Majors. Has worked real hard on his swing and is going to be a force to come for several years. This guy will win a bunch of majors before he is done.

Duval is done. I also noticed that his dad is struggling. When David was playing good his dad was winning on the senior tour. David moved from Jacksonville and I forgot where.

I was a marshall for the Champions Tour this past week, you hear some pretty interesting stuff. BTW Tom Watson is struggling with his new caddy. He is glad he isn't playing this week, not ready. Tom Kite qualifies by winning the Houston sectional- that is pretty frickin amazing IMO. 36 holes in one day against a good field with two spots available and he wins it.

My bet is that this course eats their lunch. I can see +1 as the winner. At least a boy can hope.

I wonder if this is the week we should look at Tiger Woods. He loves the majors, has been playing better. The problem is that if he gets hitting this driver bad he could shoot 80. This course will penalize him.

However heads up I like Els better than Tiger anyway. I just think Els will play really well and he also likes the U.S. Open.

How about Fred Couples, he is playing very well right now. Only concern is his back problems and if its cool his back may tighten up.

I have felt for a long time that once Mickelson won a major he would win a bunch of them. Kind of like Coach K with Duke once he won the national championship he won a bunch of them. Mickelson played very well at Shinnecock years ago, his record in the US Open is very good and the way he is hitting the driver this year he should be in the fairways all day. His short game is beyone reproach. However his odds may not be very juicy- I bot a ticket on him this winter to win the US Open at 22/1- not for much money but I don't think I will bet him at the odds I have seen lately.

Talk about a tough job. Replacing Bruce Edwards. I just got Feinstein's book by the way about him, have not read.

I totally agree with the idea that Phil will win multiple majors. Am very confident he will play real well in the British Open and PGA. Just not sure about this week. May be overbet. Can see taking him in a head to head against Tiger though, who I think will have severe struggles.

Hard to go against Els. Definitely think plus something is the winning score.

David Toms can keep it straight.

Aly- Have you read John Feinstein's "The Open" its about The US Open at Bethpage, you would love it. I haven't picked up Bruce Edwards book yet but will.

I have also heard that Amy Mickelson is pregant again, if true that has to be working on Phil's head since she struggled so bad last year with her last pregancy. It may not be true because it seems awfully quick for her to be pregnant. But you never know- especially when you look like Amy.

Furyk plans to defend U.S. Open title June 14, 2004
GolfWeb Wire Services
E-Mail To A Friend!


SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk, expected to be out until July while recovering from wrist surgery, showed up at Shinnecock Hills over the weekend and said he planned to defend his title.

"Obviously, being here is a big step," Furyk said Monday before playing nine holes.

Furyk said he would play nine holes each practice round at Shinnecock Hills before deciding whether he is strong enough to play when the tournament begins Thursday. He said there was no risk of further injuring his wrist unless he did something "really violent" with the club.

Furyk, who tied the 72-hole scoring record at Olympia Fields last year for his first victory at a major, had surgery March 22 to repair torn cartilage in his left wrist.

He said then he would be out for three to six months. That made the U.S. Open a long shot at best, and even raised questions whether he could play in the Ryder Cup. Furyk has missed only one U.S. Open since joining the PGA TOUR in 1994. That came at the 1995 event, which, oddly enough, was also played at Shinnecock Hills.

But the recovery went quickly, and Furyk played his first full round last Wednesday at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. By Friday morning, he was looking for a place to stay on Long Island.

"I'm not fooling myself. I'm not fooling anybody else," Furyk said. "I haven't played tournament golf in six months. I'll be grinding it out."

Couple thoughts....

Tiger has never won a major on a par 70 course (granted most are par 72). However his record on par 70 courses in general has been below his performance on par 72's. It might be good thing if he has to keep the driver in the bag this week.

The Bruce Edwards is ok, not as insightful as most of his books but very heartfelt. "The Open" I enjoyed very much. My all time fave is Good Walk Spoiled, a must read.

Looking for match-ups to fade Furyk. No way he handles this course after so much time off, can't imagine he can hack it out of the fescue with the wrist.

nf,
doubt you'll get any juicy matchups with Furyk or Duval, everyone knows their liabilities!

My free advice for the books is to have a Duvall-Furky match up.

Also have props on whether they break 80

Furyk in a wheelchair should be -300 vs. Duval this week.

I took a little Brian Gay at 200-1. Seemed a bit too high.

Good possible 1st round MU.........Duval and Furyk best ball vs. Tiger Woods Tiger -120

Tiger may have a tough time breaking 80 himself. Think he has no chance this week.

Would take Duval at those odds. I know he was putrid last year but I still think he has something left. Agree that Furyk would be heavily favored.
