Too much?

Though, as I’ve said before, I like when a course is set up to make shooting par an accomplishment, there were moments watching Round 3 of the U.S. Open when I felt that the course was unfair. The par 3 7th hole really was crazy. Shigeki Maruyama was the only player in the final groups to hit an approach that stayed on the green and then his approach putt rolls down a hill 30 feet and off the green! And, after watching that craziness, Phil Mickelson can’t keep his six foot putt from above the hole from rolling 12 feet past. Wow!

That all said, it’s pretty cool when an even par round can move you up a pro leaderboard. And if Tiger had just avoided that goofy double on 10, he would still be in position to make a final round charge.

Though this might look like a foolish prediction in 24 hours, I bet that the first golfer in the clubhouse posting a red number wins the championship. And Tiger could do that by shooting 65, and Sergio could do it by shooting 68. And don’t forget about Mike Weir.
