US Open Review

The recently completed US Open will be remembered as much for the meltdown by the leaders as it will be for the tremendous win by Michael Campbell. Except for Campbell, no golfer in the last two groups could break 80, and they were a combined -2 entering the final round.

Pinehurst Country Club held its own without being made to play unfairly. Combined with the amazing way the staff and volunteers conduct the tournament, this course will be a standard stop for future US Opens, along with Pebble Beach and Shinnecock Hills.

Let's see how my predictions turned out Actual finishes are in parenthesis.

Vijay Singh: predicted top 25 (T6)
Sergio Garcia: predicted top 20 (T3)
Ryan Moore: predicted top 20 (T57)
Tim Clark: predicted top 20 (T3)
Ernie Els: predicted top 10 (T15)
Stewart Cink: predicted top 10 (T15)
Tiger Woods: predicted top 10 (2)
Retief Goosen: predicted top five (T11)
Phil Mickelson: predicted top five (T33)
David Toms: predicted win (T15)

Overall, I did pretty well with my predictions with only two bad misses.
