Low scores, high humidity early at Oakmont as Tiger & Baddeley set to duel at U.S. Open
OAKMONT, Pa. - There’s an unusually high amount of humidity at Oakmont this morning.
That’s not a metaphor or anything. Seriously, I think we’ve got storms coming this afternoon…and I don’t mean storms of birdies. We could be rained out, at least for an hour or two…Hopefully this doesn’t push things back to Monday - which would be a buzz kill for everyone.
Yesterday, I mentioned to the veteran tech guy sitting next to me in the media room, “Only one more day…". He said, “you idiot, you’ve jinxed us all!”
Think the media wants to be stuck here another day?
There are some red numbers early in the field - this Sunday setup isn’t disgusting. Anthony Kim is 3-under after nine. Lee Westwood is 2-under after six.
Woods or Baddeley will make a crucial bogey on that hole today…if the weather lets them get that far.

Stop doubting yourself,Friar Tuck. We don't think that you're "full of it," we don't think that you're "higher," we don't think that you're "crucial."
I don't think that bogey on one is critical. Many the good round is ignited by an awakening from the doldrums with a + number.
Grass is green.
And fellas, just so ya know, if you're going to wear pink, it helps to be a workout freak like Tiger.
