Yeah a lot of guys are complaining about that 660 yard par 5. Almost makes it a guaranteed 3 shot hole to get to the green even for Bubba.

I just love that it is in prime time. If Tiger is contention, the ratings will be through the freakin roof.

I'll take Rory in this tournament.

Agree with SG, the fact that this is on the West Coast is great for us East Coasters, especially Thursday and Friday when there will still be a ton of golf to watch after work.

Yeah a West Coast major is awesome. I mean, coverage on ESPN tomorrow is 5-10. How perfect!

I'm taking Tiger. It may be the "easy" pick but he's 23rd in driving accuracy right now and we all now how good is iron play is.

It's on earlier than that too! So glad I don't have a real job!

I was at Nottinghams on Sat night when Tiger won in Torrey Pines. That was the round when he was making chip ins and things like that. The whole bar was watching and going crazy. Definitely a good time.

Early on, Tiger is very much under control and playing well.

Phil bogeys first 3 holes and Bubba 2 of first 3.

Watching the Bubba/Phil/Tiger group. It's amazing how aggressive Phil is.

Man the winner of this tourney is gonna be barely under par IMO. The hole placements will only get tougher as the weekend goes on.

I love these kind of tournaments. Make it so par is a good score and a birdie is a real accomplishment. If you can do that, while keeping the course fair, I think you've created a perfect US Open golf course.

In 1998, 4 players finished under par and the winning score was -3.

The course is playing longer now.

The 14 year old is +8, but he has played his last 8 holes at even par.

Wow, Michael Thompson birdies to be the first person in the clubhouse under par with a 4 under 66. Has to be a strong candidate for round of the day.

I'd also expect if he plays even par golf the next 3 days he would win ;)

Even money that he ends up in red figures by the end of his round tomorrow.
