Olympic Club Course Kicking US Open Players asses

156 golfers teed off for the first round of the US Open. At the end of the day only 14 of them were even par or better...I'm guessing I would have shot a 200 - LOL....

Look at some of these scores - Immelman +10, Donald +9, Watson +8, McIlroy +7, Mickelson +6, Ogilvy +6

Of the 18 holes, only the par 4 7th and the par 5 17th had an average of under par by all of the players...hardest hole of the day was the par 4 first hole where the average by the players was 4.583 followed closely by the par 5 16th where the average was 5.564..

Looks like a lot of big names won't even make it to Saturday....all of the TV folks are praying, sacrificing goats, virgins, whatever they can in hopes that Tiger can stay near the top for the entire weekend....should be a big rating Fathers Day Sunday if he's in it....if not it could be ugly....

Relative unknown 27 year old Michael Thompson has a 3 stroke lead on the field heading into the second day..Thompson is ranked #107 on the money list for the season...

I like all of the TV folks hope that Tiger stays near the top - I'll certainly watch some on Sunday if he's in it, but if all of the big names are out of it by Sunday I will certainly watch a good bit less....
