Nine under at a U.S. Open? If that ever happened, the USGA braintrust might implode on the spot. I like that you've been following how everyone's been saying it's going to be easier than the last few years at WorldGolf.com, but you've taken it beyond the extreme.

You've now in as much touch with reality as David Stern, BTuck.

I say two under wins it.

Since 1990, the winning score has been 6-under or better five times, including Woods' 12-under at Pebble and Furyk's 8-under in 2003.

In that same time frame, five times has the winning score even or worse, including back-to-back 5-overs, which I think nobody wants to see for a 3rd straight year.

If the folks in charge had their way then they would place the pins in the bunkers, forget about a difficult spot on the green. In such a scenario to think that the winning score would go down to as low as 9 under is hard to digest.

With the early honors being taken by two unheralded guys and the big guns shooting about par I think 9 under seems a distant possibility but if the course plays the same way over the weekend the players might not be complaining that much. One thing is for sure, this one aint a beast like Oakmont.

I think it is about time that Adam Scott won a major and this is as good a time as any. Maybe this might be his chance.

I really hope Tiger does not end up winning this one, for the sake of the kids. You don’t want a role model who is out cold for two months and then comes back and does the usual again. Kids will think that is the easy route to success. Tiger, Tiger, Tiger… you must set the right path for the youngsters, play well but do struggle!
