I had the chance to watch a bit of ESPN’s coverage of the US Open during lunch today. The course looks to be in great shape and the wind seems to be blowing just a bit. Also, I had the opportunity to listen to XM Radio’s coverage of the tournament to and from lunch.

Anyways, Tiger tees of in about 5 minutes. And, Young Tom Morris’ pick Colin Montgomerie is currently in the lead at -1. I had the opportunity to watch Monty play the last 2 holes and he is certainly playing well. He made about a 30 footer slider on 17 for birdie to get to -1 and then staked it on 18 to about 6 feet only to “Wie” it and settle for par.

Phil and Furyk are in at Even; Vijay, Weir, and John Cook are in at +1; Couples and Z. Johnson are in at +3.

Looks to be a good leaderboard.

Update 2:18pm: Woods is now +3 thru 3. Yes, he has made bogey on the first three holes, including a 3-whack on #3. Maybe Mulligan needs to find a new pony to ride, because Tiger seems to be struggling as of now.
