Tiger writes about the U.S. Open: “The U.S. Open is next week and I’m working hard on my game to get ready. I played another practice round Monday at Oakmont Country Club to get a better feel for the course and left with the same impression I had the first time I played it: It’s probably the hardest U.S. Open course I have ever played.

“Obviously, driving will be a key. Most fairways are only about 26 yards wide and the rough is brutal in places. Given the speed and undulation of the greens, it will be difficult to hold the putting surfaces without playing from the short grass. Plus, many of the fairways run out. I see myself hitting only five or six drivers and using a lot of stinger 3-woods off the tee for position. It might leave me with longer clubs into the greens, but at least I will be able to control the spin of my golf ball.”

On fatherhood: “It’s hard to believe that I’m going to be a father next month. The time has gone so fast and reality is starting to sink in. Elin and I are so excited to welcome this child into the world!

“People keep asking if it’s a boy or a girl and suggesting names. I honestly don’t know and wouldn’t say if I did. As for names, we’ve thrown some around. I admit I’ve been slow-playing Elin on the subject, but I’ll definitely be involved in the process.

“Finally, I want to thank all the fans for their advice and support. This is a special time in our lives and we look forward to parenthood.”
