I’m looking forward to next week’s U.S. Open at Congressional GC just outside of Washington DC. It is a BIG golf course….long and tough with difficult greens. Congressional has always given us great champions and I predict it will be the same next week!
We’ll all miss Tiger Woods at the Open. He is struggling with his game and his body right now but, having been through a few physical challenges myself, I think he is doing the right thing. He is 35 now and has to make the correct decisions about his body because at 35, what he does now will impact his game heavily over the next 5-10 years.
My early favorites are Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia but I want you to watch for an amateur named Patrick Cantlay. He could make some noise.
