How will Rory fare?
US Open Pairings
By Kickntrue on 6/12/09
The USGA released their first and second round pairings for the US Open next week at Bethpage Black. Here are a couple groups I'll be watching:
8:06 a.m.-1:36 p.m. GÇô Padraig Harrington, Ireland; Angel Cabrera, Argentina; Tiger Woods, Windermere, Fla.

8:28 a.m.-1:58 p.m. GÇô Lee Westwood, England; Zach Johnson, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Shingo Katayama, Japan.

1:25 p.m.-7:55 a.m. GÇô Sergio Garcia, Spain; Camilo Villegas, Colombia; Adam Scott, Australia.

8:06 a.m.-1:36 p.m. GÇô Luke Donald, England; Trevor Immelman, South Africa; Tim Clark, South Africa.

1:14 p.m.-7:44 a.m. GÇô Anthony Kim, Los Angeles; Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland; Dustin Johnson, Myrtle Beach, S.C.
That Tiger group is going to be a lot of fun, but my "best" of the day is the young Kim, McIlroy, Johnson group. My prediction is that we see the first day leader come from there. Just a hunch.

I like these:

7:44 a.m.-1:14 p.m. GÇô Vijay Singh, Fiji; Jeev Milkha Singh, India; K.J. Choi, South Korea

1:47 p.m.-8:17 a.m. GÇô Rocco Mediate, Los Angeles; Kenny Perry, Franklin, Ky.; Tom Lehman, Scottsdale, Ariz.

7:55 a.m.-1:25 p.m. GÇô Geoff Ogilvy, Australia; Jim Furyk, Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.; Paul Casey, England

1:36 p.m.-8:06 a.m. GÇô Retief Goosen, South Africa; Ernie Els, South Africa; Phil Mickelson, Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.

If Perry and Rocco are their normal, chatty, fun-loving selves, I think that would be the best group to mic.
mmontisano says:
they're already calling the Mediate, Perry, Lehman pairing "The Heartache Group" because they all were in the final pairing of a major and lost.

it looks like the Els, Goosen and Mickelson pairing is the "3 Majors and Hoping For More Group."

i like how the USGA takes certain liberties for the US Open pairings. it's kinda fun.
mmontisano says:
WHOOPS! sorry....the Goose only has 2 majors. forgot.

Let's hope the first day leader comes from that young group, I have Dustin Johnson in the Father's Day Giveaway!

Hopefully Rory makes the cut and finishes in the top 15 at worst. Lets go Rory!
