Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and some other guy are paired together for the US Open. The “some other guy” is #3 ranked Adam Scott. Who? Yeah, Stank-0 doesn’t know who this guy is either. For the golf fans it gets better.
World’s No. 1 Tiger Woods will be paired with No. 2 Phil Mickelson and third-ranked Adam Scott. Woods and Mickelson played together once before at the U.S. Open, in the 1999′s third round at Pinehurst. The late Payne Stewart won that year, with Mickelson second and Woods third.
Ernie Els, Justin Rose and Geoff Ogilvy make up another trio. Stewart Cink, Sergio Garcia and Vijay Singh will be together. And K.J. Choi, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker make up the other big-name grouping.
All told, the top 12 players in the world will be accounted for in the four groups.
This year the Open is held at Torrey Pines, which is in the San Diego area. This will be quite interesting. Both Woods and Mickelson have fan base in the area.
The U.S. Open traditionally groups the defending champion, the British Open champion and the U.S. Amateur champion. That would not be affected with Angel Cabrera at No. 22 in the ranking, Padraig Harrington at No. 14 and U.S. Amateur champion Colt Knost not in the field because he turned pro.
Stank-0 isn’t a golf enthusiast, but he will be watchin the opening round of the US Open, advantage Jigga .
