Just wondering Who Won?
2001 at Pebble Beach. Not only did we watch Tiger lap the field. I had a great father/son weekend with my then 18 year old son On Father’s day!!
2002 Open at Bethpage Black. The first muni to host the Open. Weather was tough on Friday afternoon. Crowd was rowdy. Wet, drinking, and the field was playing s-l-o-w….. Sergio was doing his routine of placing the club down, lifting it, waggling, and doing it again, and again. His group was a hole behind and he started his waggling thing on number seven, a par 5. The crowd started counting 10, 11,… 17, 18..25, 26. Some drunk yells out “HIT THE F>>>NNG BALL SERGIO”. Sergio stepped back and flipped the bird at the crowd. Not a good thing to do to a bunch of wet, cold, drunk New Yorkers. He got it from the crowd for the next 47 holes and they were still on him at the 2009 Open.
Jack Nicklaus, 1 iron, 17th hole, 1972! What else can I say.
1982 at Pebble Beach where Tom Watson chipped in on 17 to beat Jack by two.
Payne Stewart Pinehurst 1999
Payne Stewart at Pinehurst.
Payne Stewarts win at pinhurst, 1999
The last round at Winged Foot in 2006. Many top name players blew it on the last hole.
Jerry Pate hit a five iron on the 18th hole in Atlanta to about five feet and made the putt to win. I hit a five iron from the same spot one week prior in order to lay up in front of the creek and left myself 110 yards to the middle of the green. We were both in the second cut.(there were three cuts) I was a plus 2 handicap at the time and shot 78. I believe to this day, he was trying to lay up and caught a flyer which allowed him to win that U.S. Open. What a shot.
Pebble Beach when Tiger blew everybody away. Because I was lucky enough to be there. It is the only US Open I have been to.
It was in 1952 at Northwood Country Club in Dallas, Tx. It was my first golf tournament to watch and got me hooked on golf for the rest of my life. Julius Boros was the winner.
when will the pairings and courses for each day come out are thier any verifing of handicaps if so when thanks newbee
Thanks for the post. I will be posting a course rotation with what tee boxes each flight will play this week. I will start verifying handicaps on May 15th. You will recieve a letter the week before the event with information on registration and we will have final indexes posted on the website along with the final course rotation for everyone. The pairings on the first day are a random draw then on days two and three you will be paired in the order of position in the flight (example the top 4 in the flight after day will play together on day 2). We are looking forward to seeing everyone in the next couple of weeks.
It was the first day of competition of the 2008 US OPEN at Torrey Pines. I was working hole 14 as a Grandstand Marshal. Tiger & Phil were paired together. Phil made birdie, & Tiger boogied from the green side bunker.
Also during the Practice round, I was working the Par 3 16th, no action. Then you could watch the crowds going from hole to hole coming our way. First it was Tiger coming along. Then nothing for a while. Then the crowds again. And along comes Phil. Then sparse crowds for the rest of my shift. Of all the Golf Tournaments I have worked, the US OPEN was the best. Watching on TV is nothing compared to being there.
