Joining David Duval from golf hiatus at the U.S. Open will be defending champion Jim Furyk. Furyk is coming back from wrist surgery and 6 months of rehab. It’s sooner than projected, and it may be sooner than medically advised. But Jim explains, “It’s the U.S. Open, it’s Shinnecock, and I’m the defending champion. Otherwise I would’ve waited.”

Personally, I think Jim should wait. The rough at Shinnecock can be knee high. Tiger injured his wrist the first time he played there. I watched the highlights of the last U.S. Open played there, and the golfers were wick-wacking it out of the rough.

But I also understand Jim’s desire to defend his championship. If he wants to give it a go, he’s earned that right.
