The golf on Saturday was awesome, unless you are a Phil Mickelson fan. Tiger played the best round of golf that he has played in many, many months. You could just see it on the back nine. Dustin Johnson also played a tremendous round of golf. Johnson is six under par. Graeme McDowell played very well through 15 holes, then ended the day with bogey, bogey, par.
I’m looking forward to a nice finish.
Tiger Woods poured in one birdie after another, more than he had ever made in one round of the U.S. Open, each of them followed by cheers that could be heard down the Pacific coastline at Pebble Beach.
Dustin Johnson didn’t realize they were for Woods. He played like he didn’t care.
Johnson turned in a prime-time performance of his own Saturday in the U.S. Open, overpowering Pebble Beach and closing with two birdies for a 5-under 66 to build a three-shot lead over Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland. (more…)
