    I'd love a story book scenario like that! I could see a movie in the future if that were to occur. Wouldn't it be awesome for the 2nd major of the year after Sergio finally won his 1st major ever on Seve's 60th birthday? Wow, what a year that would make for golf!

    The GFS is back to showing precip. up to ~noon CDT. though light.

    Also per the Milwaukee NWS:

    "THURSDAY
    MOSTLY SUNNY. SLIGHT CHANCE OF LIGHT SHOWERS IN THE
    MORNING, THEN SLIGHT CHANCE OF LIGHT SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN
    THE AFTERNOON. HIGHS IN THE MID 80S. CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION
    20 PERCENT."

    Well it's going to be close, appears though showers will probably move out in time unfortunately for Phil to make it but again if one big storm can dump some impressive rainfall Wed night or the models are off a few hours..... there's still a chance.

    Disappointed.... Phil's chances look to be next to 0% at this time. I'd give it a 5% chance of some sort of weather delay and that's going against all model output and forecasted conditions. There's always next year.

    Yes, bummer. But at least we both realized his chances weren't high though I was certainly not giving up. It was fun following Milwaukee forecasts closely for a few days. Maybe next year he'll be extra inspired.

    Meanwhile, Rickie Fowler ties the US Open 1st round record low round of -7! Just 2 shots back and tied with 4 others is SAV native Brian Harman.

    Georgian Brian Harman is leading the US Open at the end of round 3 at -12 thanks to a 67. His putting has been great. Three are at -11, including Justin Thomas who shot a record low round for any round of any US Open, a -9! Rickie Fowler is at -10.

    No. 1, 2 and 3 missed cut, no Tiger and no Phil but its still shaping up to be an exciting finish at Erin Hills. Some amazing golf played yesterday.

    Congrats Brooks Koepka..... my middle name actually (parents said named for Orioles great, 3rd baseman Brooks Robinson), so it's good to see another Brooks with a championship!
