|The U.S. Open Picks Are Up!|
|It all looks pretty good for Pittsburgh...|
The alphabetized picks and early round one standings for the
year's 2nd major are on the site. We chose 27 golfers. We are
down to six golfer teams because world #1 Aussie Jason Day is a
unanimous pick. All but one us went with the All-American boy,
Jordan Spieth. Young Irishman Rory McIlroy made it on to 14
teams. Thirteen of us like the American icon, D.J. Smilin'
Matt Kuchar got 8 votes. Patrick Reed shows up on 6 teams.
Phil Mick got the nod 5 times. Foreigners Justin Rose and Adam
Scott are 4-baggers. Fowler, Matsuyama and The Bubba are
treys. This week's deuces are Dufner, Willett and Grace.
Twelve unique picks this week. Andrew, Chris and Mike M. have 2 each. Hugh, Bill, Dan, Oliver, Joe and I have one each. The remaining 7 players will not have a unique pick to watch hack it around in the Church Pews.
This is a wonderful set of picks for a major. It's pretty obvious we have 4 clear favorites. Everyone has at least 3 parts of this Great Quadrilateral, many have all 4. But 2/3 off the picks are uniques, deuces or treys and some pretty good golfers are in that 2/3. Unless the favorites totally bag it, this one should be down to the wire. And that's the way it should be at a U.S. Open at Oakmont. A 4-way Monday (or Tuesday if it keeps raining) playoff between our favorites would be appropriate. This is the one that really matters to us Americans and its just gotta be a good one...
Let's Get It On!
