US Open – Day #3, part 2

Tiger Woods started today’s round with a double bogey. He was just struggling. Not making up any ground. As a matter of fact, he was losing ground. He was 5 strokes begin the leader when he was on 13. Then out of nowhere, magic.

From ESPN:

Tiger Woods is looking to win the U.S. Open for a third time, giving him the career grand slam three times over (and matching Jack Nicklaus).

Englishman Lee Westwood is seeking to become the first man from Europe to win the U.S. Open in nearly 40 years.

And they’ll be head-to-head in the final group Sunday at Torrey Pines.

Woods, with two back-nine eagles, leads the U.S. Open by a shot over Westwood heading into the final round. (more…)

US Open Day 2

My brother called me around 7 yesterday evening. Are you watching the US Open? Nope. Then we started talking about this and that. Suddenly, he switches subjects back to golf and says, “I’m not sure why you aren’t watching the Open, Tiger has birdied 2 in a row.”

Tiger was the story yesterday as he is only one stroke back as the 3rd round starts today.

From AP:

Tiger Woods looked like any other player trying to survive a U.S. Open, head bowed in frustration with each shot that found trouble and kept him farther from the lead.

One hole changed everything.

With his metal spikes on a cement path and a tree over his head, he fired an 8-iron around the branches and over the bunker to 18 feet for a birdie that sent him charging into contention at Torrey Pines on Friday. (more…)

This is a long summary of yesterday’s events –
