    All he needs to do is shoot a 50 Sunday. Should be easy? It was fun to watch.

    Amazingly, Tiger is now within 4 of the TPC leader, Webb Simpson, with Tiger at -14 going to 14 and Webb at -18 going to 11. Duffner, who is -5 today, and Lee are also at -14.

    Edit: Webb Simpson holds on to win by 4 at -18 despite going in the water and getting a double bogey on the 18th. Congrats.

    Bumping this because your middle name won the US Open again! Congrats, Brooks! He played very tough in the final round and minimized damage when tee shots and 2nd shots weren’t good. He made two clutch 5-10 foot par putts on the backside. He bogeyed 18 after a terrible 2nd shot to beat Tommy Fleetwood, who finished 3 hours earlier with a low US Open round record tying 63, by one. Patrick Reed, the Masters winner, had at one time today been -5 for the round and tied for the lead at -1, but he later fell back to finish 3 back. DJ had been at least tied for the lead at the end of each of the 1st 3 rounds, but he fell back today though he still finished just 2 back in 3rd.

    Side note: Phil, due to frustration about the very difficult greens in the 3rd round, very uncharacteristically intentionally hit his ball while it was still moving after a missed putt. He got penalized 2. I’ve always admired Phil for his great demeanor (so much better than Tiger, for example) in addition to exceptional skills around the green for ~25 years. So, whereas I don’t at all condone his doing this, I’d prefer it not be dwelled on by the media as Phil just had a bad day and snapped despite doing so much good for the game. However, I am a bit concerned about one thing. What’s to stop someone else from intentionally swatting at a ball headed for the water, say, like on one of the Masters back nine water holes? I’m wondering if Phil, as much as I still like him, should have been DQed to avoid setting precedent. Opinions?

    He was penalized 2 strokes, DQ would be aggressive. It was actually a smart move by Phil, shouldn’t have done it but it was smart. Muscle K was awesome and played fantastic, it was fun to watch. I wish I had that power and skill. Muscle K and DJ are the best in the game right now.

    I'm going to vote no on the DQ for 2 reasons: 1) I'm biased, I'm a Phil fan and always have been. Even though he is always even keel and sure he may have lost a little bit of that in the 3rd round, many of us recreational golfers loved it, he only did what so many have always wanted to do.... 2) There would've had to have been a rules change mid stream to enact a DQ, he did what he did, sure out of frustration, but nobody knows the rules better than Phil and (right or wrong) used them to his advantage (kinda). Anyway he knew he could not be DQ'd or I seriously doubt he would've done it. None the less it was quite comical

    Oh and congrats to Brooks..... it's a great name and I'm considering a major change in my life now, I may start going by my middle name, see if I have the same good fortunes ;)
