Jason On Jason – US Open Style

After taking a bit of a vacation from blogging and playing in a couple of tournaments (1st and T-16), I am back to blog about a couple of happenings in the golf world. However, I figure that I need to be honest with our readers of thegolfblog.com and myself by reviewing my 2005 US Open predictions, which can be found here.

Prediction – Winner: Jim Furyk

Jason On Jason I was unable to predict that Michael Campbell would win, which was true for 99.9% of all handicapers. Nevertheless, Furyk did finish T-28, which was not a bad prediction. With rounds of 71 – 70 – 75 – 75, Furyk was in contention after two rounds, but his last two rounds took him out of contention.

Prediction – Winning Score: 281 (+1)

Jason On Jason – The winning score was 280 (E). I was fairly pleased with this prediction, and if Campbell had not made a couple clutch putts coming down the stretch, 281 would have been right on the money.

Prediction – Best Dressed: Ian Poulter.

Jason On Jason – Poulter was around for 4 days, but I was unable to watch much of the tournament so I did not get to see much of his fashion. But, Tiger’s pink shirt on the first day needs to be retired fast! Also, no one wore Knickers, which was a bit disappointing.

Prediction – Best looking wife/girlfriend/partner: Woods. This is the only thing that Tiger has going for him this week.

Jason On Jason – Maybe Tiger needs to get a putting lesson or something, but Tiger was remarkable finishing 2nd even though he ranked 80th in putting (averaging 32 putts per round or 1.78 per hole). However, I was right on with the fact that Woods had the best looking wife in the field.

Prediction – Levin or Moore: Moore. Ryan Moore also is the low amateur for the tournament and will be the only amateur to make the cut. Moore is the complete package and Levin will not be making holes-in-one this year to get him into the hunt.

Jason On Jason – Even though Moore did beat Levin, Moore was not the low amateur. Moore was defeated by Florida Junior Matt Every, who finished T-28. Moore has turned pro and will compete in this week’s Barclays Classic.

Prediction – Highest Round: With much dismay, I’m going to have to choose Ben Curtis. After watching him win the Open Championship at Royal St. Georges, my man from Ostrander wearing the NFL Colors (like Payne used to) will unfortuately shoot the highest round of the tournament, which I’m going to guess will be 85.

Jason On Jason – I did pick the highest round, an 85, but I did not place it with the right man. However, I have no problem with Paul Casey being honored with this distinction. Casey, who is better known for “Hating Americans”, withdrew after posting the highest round of the tournament!

Prediction – Lowest Round: 65

Jason on Jason – I thought that with the technology changes between 1999 and 2005, that someone would shoot 65. Peter Hedblom did come through with a 66, which was a US Open low on Pinehurst No. 2, but unfortunately no one was able to post a 65.

That is Jason on Jason for the 2005 US Open. I’m trying to keep myself honest and plan on reflecting on my 2005 Predictions for the PGA Tour season in the weeks to come.
