The U.S. Open Picks Are Up!
It all looks pretty good for Pittsburgh...
Let's Get It On!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...
