    I watched most of Tiger's presser earlier. He sounds in a good spot mentally and physically. Claims he feels better on these poa greens.

    It's coming. Last year @ Erin Hills I believe was the longest course a major was hosted at, just shy of 7800 I think.

    I feel liked Rahm is ready to win a major, but Spieth always seems to play his best in majors after he's been forgotten about. Have to take him.

    I don't think Tiger has a great chance this week and will instead have to wait until Carnoustie for his best chance this year.

    I'm not worried about Tiger's form. I think the putting will be good. I'm more worried about the fact that he never plays this course well. He had his two worst driving accuracy weeks in the US Open at this course. On the contrary, Phil had his two best at this course, so its not some anomaly. These are weird fairways. They slope in a certain way that you can't just hit it as far as you can, you have to hit certain landing spots within them. So far, Tiger has struggled to do that. Could contend, but if something holds him back, I think it'll be the driver.

    Absolutely no clue what to expect from Jordan's game. Everyone is talking about his putting, but it was actually good at Memorial. That was his worst ball-striking week of the season though. Is the putting now not a problem and the ball-striking is? Will have to wait and find out. I tend to think he's helped by these green complexes because they require a lot of feel and less mechanics. I thought he putted well because of that at Augusta. And I think the gritty nature of the event vs. low scores of most events helps where his game is currently at.

    Was able to place legal bets on golf this week at a casino, so threw in a few (not a big risk taker, so kept it light). Wanted to bet my favorite golfer, DJ, but odds were only 7/1.

    Rose (8/1), Rahm (15/1), McIlroy (16/1), Stenson (25/1), Fleetwood (30/1),
    Casey (50/1), F Molinari (60/1), Scott (60/1), Grillo (100/1), Woodland (150/1)

    I put 10 bucks on Rahm at 21-1, felt like he was underrated. Put another ten on him top 10 at 5-1.

    Excited for the week, so many guys I'd love to see win. JT, Tiger, Rors, but most of all I want Phil to finally win a US Open. So many close calls, it will be a shame if he never gets one.

    Looks pretty rough out there, judging by the scores anyway.

    And it's ****ing awesome. Make Par Great Again!

    I'm hoping today my dream of seeing someone shoot 100 in a PGA Tour event is realized. Surely one of these qualifier hacks has a shot.
