18 times

June 17, 2012 - Mike Mathison
What a grand finish is on tap for the U.S. Open today at The Olympic Club.

72 golfers will put the peg in the ground 18 times in the final round in San francisco. I will not say that Tiger shot himself out of the tournament, but he shot himself out of the tournament. He shot 75 on "Moving Day" and moved five shots off the pace. The guy he is playing with today, Casey Whittenberg, shot 67 Saturday. Woods went from T1 to T14.

There are 36 twosomes and Wittenberg went out in the 6th twosome Saturday and Tiger in the 36th pairing. That, folks, is "Moving Day" right there.

Woods and David Toms shot the two worst rounds Saturday of anyone in the top 55 at the end of play (but for A. Presnell).

Do not expect the course set-up to be as easy as it was today.

The USGA's Mike Davis has set up three outstanding days of golf and I would suspect today for the final 18 will be no different.

I still like Furyk because, usually, he hits it so straight off the tee. But, there are 13 players within four shots of the lead. And, anyone of the "no-names" can pull a Steve Jones from 1996 and hoist the trophy.

An Ernie Els win would be fine with me. Same with Lee Westwood.

Do not count out, though, Webb Simpson or Jason Dufner.

What a grand golfing Sunday.

Happy Father's Day!!!
