US Open Talk: It Was Another Close Round at Erin Hills

US Open Talk: It Was Another Close Round at Erin Hills

Yesterday at the US Open left us with our hands to our mouths as the Leaderboard changed several times.  There were some incredible shots one in particular was Justin Thomas’ Eagle Putt on 18.  With that Putt he became the only Golfer to ever score -9 for a single Round of the US Open.

It was an incredible day for him and he finished his round in Lead at the time at -11 for the Championship, 63 on the day.  Wow what a fantastic day of Golf it was.

The Greens were a little wet from the other night’s rain.  The wind really died down so that the Greens were in striking distance.  I’d have to say yesterday’s conditions were the best by far for the players.  I mean seriously, Eagle Putts on Par 5’s, come on man, that’s just crazy!

As crazy as that sounds there were 14 Players who were vying for the Lead.  There actually was a 7 Player Tie for 1st at one time.  One of those players was Ricky Fowler who made an incredible Putt on the 15th making  a Birdie.  In fact he made 3 Birdies in a row, the 14th, 15th, and 16th.  Fowler finished the day -11 Tied for 2nd.

The big surprise yesterday was how well the Field played.  Brian Harman played well and finished with the Lead, -12 for the Championship.  Brooks Koepka who had an Eagle Putt robbed from him on the 14th.  He shot -11 for the Tournament.  Then there was Tommy Fleetwood who was all over the Green.  He made some incredible Putts but lost his nerve at the 18th.  He finished the day -11.  Look out cause this Major really is up for grabs!  Anyone of these guys can pull away from the Field and put it away.

The Front 9 has the easiest Holes and with the conditions they way they were, everyone was making Birdies on them.  Look for the same to be true today as the US Open finishes today, Round 4, on Fox.  I think that it will be a close one with Fowler, Harman, Koepka, and Fleetwood in the mix.

I believe though that this is the time and place, ‘the moment’ if you will for Fowler to really show that he has what it takes to win a Major.  He’s the fan favorite, but can he do it?  That question will be answered today.

Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1 At Dell Technologies Championship

After round 1 at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Dustin Johnson leads the pack.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one.

First-Round Leaderboard

Dustin Johnson             66 (-5)

Kyle Stanley                 67 (-4)

Marc Leishman             67 (-4)

Sergio Garcia               67 (-4)

Jon Rahm                     67 (-4)

Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead.

Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66.

In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year.

Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72.

Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

Dell Technologies Championship Preview

Dell Technologies Championship Preview: TV Information, Field, And More

The FedExCup returns to TPC Boston this weekend, but this time something is different.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44.

McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history.

But this year looks to be different at the  Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.

  1. Dustin Johnson
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Justin Thomas
  4. Hideki Matsuyama
  5. John Rahm
  6. Rickie Fowler
