U.S. Open 2018

  • Tiger Woods during his practice round at Shinnecock Hills Tuesday

After teeing off on the 10th hole, No. 8 would be the second-to-last of his day, and for a moment, Poulter looked like he might sign a scorecard that would put him in the U.S. Open lead.

First was the tee shot that wandered far left into the hay.

The world number one, joint overnight leader, had four birdies and one bogey and is four under at Shinnecock Hills.

The U.S. Open Sigh goes something like this: When your ball comes to rest (at last), you inhale deeply, your shoulders rising as your lungs fill with air, then you exhale slowly, hoping that long and measured breath will assuage your frustration before it morphs into rage.

On a day when crosswinds danced with golf balls in a wild, unpredictable tango, when well-struck drives flew sideways and softly tapped putts rolled backward, when dazzling blue skies were more threatening than any storm clouds could have been, there were precious few golfers to stay under par. Rory McIlroy missed the cut for the third straight year in the U.S. Open, unable to recover from his opening 80.

Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors
Cohen wants to hire a lawyer who has a relationship with the US prosecutor's office in Manhattan, the source added. Cohen has been referred to at different times as Trump's fixer, pit bull, and consigliere.

Spieth missed a 4-foot par putt on No. 10 to start his round, and then tried to get that shot back by playing a bunker shot at the flag on the par-3 11th.

No player has ever won a US Open having won a title the week before, but the weight of history is just one more thing Johnson has made light of in establishing his useful advantage.

"Yes, I felt stupid knifing the first one, and I felt more stupid semi-choking the next one, but I didn't do much better on the next one either", Poulter continued in his deconstruction of the hole he could have called his downfall.

"More than anything else it was hard to control the ball off the tee", Spieth said.

"We got lucky with the conditions, getting much easier".

Willow Smith’s awkward memory of parents
Jada Pinkett Smith claims she finally realized the addiction one day and said to herself "enough with the five orgasms a day". And, so, all we need to do is support each other through it and I wish I had know that, Jada , it's just a part of it, baby.

"Dustin plays a whole different golf game than I play, so I'm not going to play the guy", Hoffman said. "Anything within three shots of the lead on the back Sunday, anything can happen". I enjoy the fight. Every time you come into a US Open you know it's going to be tough.

"It's been a long time, and this is not really the week I wanted to revisit that score". "If you don't, you're going to struggle". As the day wore on the course dried out and pinpoint shots were pitching within a yard of the pin, apparently coming to a standstill, only to drift this way and that, off the green and into the dwang.

It was McIlroy who was asked on Wednesday if his interpretation of a US Open challenge was as test or punishment. As he made his way toward player dining, Mickelson ran his hand through his thinning hair and sighed one last time, his body language describing his mood in a way words never could.

Not too many passing grades Thursday, but plenty of detention.

"It's a U.S. Open, so disaster's always around the corner", Koepka said.
