Van De Velde '99
Mickelson '06
Johnson '10

I still hate Nantzy  more.

PS, you got a link how that "flight track" works?  It seems shady as hell they can process it in real time, let alone TV 'delay' time.

Most of the time it seems surprisingly accurate, to boot.

/ I'm shocked, Cotton.
 
2014-07-20 09:54:13 AM
well, McIlroy doesn't seem to start with any jitters.


jfc.

They're all rather crappy, it seems.

Even worse, FOX has already tapped Joe Buck to lead the US Open coverage next year.

/Can we have Gus Johnson on course? For the lulz?

mcilroy tees off with an iron on a par 4.

kid in gallery "get in the hole!!!"


see we've still got some stupidity to export to our old neighbors
"bangers and mash" chants next year?

2014-07-20 10:31:45 AM
lol @ Adam Scott and that drop.
wow.
 
2014-07-20 10:46:44 AM
Here comes Lowry. Is Co. Offaly in Leinster or Munster?
 
2014-07-20 10:49:12 AM
what was that fowler?
 
2014-07-20 11:00:31 AM
uh oh, rory with back to back bogeys.......
 
2014-07-20 11:01:42 AM
wow, what a shot by Karlsssson.

and now in the greenside pot...........
 
2014-07-20 11:06:04 AM
amazing bunker shot by Rory.......

wow.
 
2014-07-20 11:18:24 AM
Tom Watson: +1
Tiger: +6

Yeah, that pleases me to no end.
 
2014-07-20 11:19:44 AM

Gulper Eel: Tom Watson: +1
Tiger: +6

Yeah, that pleases me to no end.


LOL.
 
2014-07-20 11:24:16 AM
no , Tirico,   454 people have not played that hole this week.
 
2014-07-20 11:25:07 AM
that Birdie for McIlroy at the turn might have sealed it.

wow.
cool as ice.
 
2014-07-20 11:27:29 AM
Sergio .......... says not so fast.......

wow he murdered that ball. to ... 12 feet?
 
2014-07-20 11:31:52 AM
Sergio holes the Eagle putt on 10.

WOW!!!!!
how will Rory respond?
 
2014-07-20 11:34:15 AM
oh man, I'm beginning to sweat and I'm not playing.
 
2014-07-20 11:36:16 AM

Gulper Eel: Tom Watson: +1
Tiger: +6

Yeah, that pleases me to no end.


I wouldn't be all that surprised if Watson doesn't win another major.  Hell, he almost had the US Open a couple of years back.  I don't necessarily think it'll happen, but then again I'm not saying it won't.
 
2014-07-20 11:39:17 AM
I considered laying a bet on Sergio after the second round but pussed out. Maybe I should have
 
2014-07-20 11:41:47 AM
Did I miss something? Is "free-wheeling" a drinking game cue?

jake_lex: I wouldn't be all that surprised if Watson doesn't win another major. Hell, he almost had the US Open a couple of years back. I don't necessarily think it'll happen, but then again I'm not saying it won't.


I think it was the British. Bogeyed 18 to fall into a playoff where he was crushed by something like 3 strokes over 4 holes.
 
2014-07-20 11:42:27 AM
Sergio is cracking up.  Hope not though he is a great player.

soooo close for Sergio

great bounce for Sergio!

did anyone die?
lol

Sonofa......lucky.
 
2014-07-20 11:57:43 AM
First Major this year with some juice on Sunday. Garcia is turning it on but McIlroy shows no sign of tanking so I don't know if he has a real shot of winning. Recall Sergio as a kid really, a few years back when he jumped with excitement when he came close to Tiger's lead on Sunday in a Major. He still hasn't won a Major yet?
 
2014-07-20 11:59:19 AM
My ball would have bounced into the back of a truck....where it rolled off into the bog.
 
2014-07-20 12:05:59 PM
I'm rooting for Rory....but come on Sergio.

Van De Velde '99

You can do eet Rory.

Van De Velde's epic collapse at British Open in 1999, 15 years ago was a wild weekend in sports. Also had David Cone's Perfect game with Don Larsen in stands at Yankee stadium because it was Yogi Berra day. Also a very sad weekend since it was the weekend of JFK Jr's fatal plane crash. I was vacationing in Cancun at the time and remember checking the news frequently.
 
2014-07-20 12:13:59 PM
wow Rory is almost certain to bogey that.
 
2014-07-20 12:27:26 PM
Sergio sniffing bogey with that pot bunker?
 
2014-07-20 12:28:59 PM

dookdookdook: The best majors are the ones that get gagged away epically.



Tom Watson had a pretty massive gag job what, 3-4 years ago?

first time i've watched golf since i think the Masters.  I guess Sergio puling it off would be good for him but, i'm pretty sure sergio will go Operation Codename:  Sergio on the 16th or 17th and gag on his balls.
 
2014-07-20 12:29:12 PM
and sergio is done.

:(


McIlroy wins.......
 
2014-07-20 12:30:36 PM

rickythepenguin: pretty sure sergio will go Operation Codename: Sergio on the 16th or 17th and gag on his balls.



annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd the moment i hit that, he stays in the bunker.

so if Rory pulls it off, will he talk some shiat to Wozniacki?  I didn'tread the story but I guess she took a poke at him via Instagram or some shiat a few days ago?
 
2014-07-20 12:38:31 PM
Oooh, Rory can'tbe happy with that. really could have put his foot on Ricky and Serge's neck
 
2014-07-20 12:52:06 PM
It's kind of disturbing listening to the color guys describing some of these swings.
 
2014-07-20 12:55:38 PM

mootmah: It's kind of disturbing listening to the color guys describing some of these swings.


The best one was earlier when one of them said Fowler "down cocks his swing".

This one is in the books. Rory with the bird on 16.
 
2014-07-20 12:56:10 PM
Why did Rory point at that guy and make him leave?
 
2014-07-20 12:58:13 PM
