Lucas Glover Wins It
By Kickntrue on 6/22/09
Your 2009 US Open Champ- Lucas Glover!

Did Phil choke? Did Duval ruin a chance for a storybook finish? Did the rain ruin your viewing experience and how do you think it changed the overall results (ie.. the "Tiger Question").

Thoughts?

Phil definately choked - right on cue Phil misses a 5 footer, unreal.

Tiger will be kicking himself about this one, he couldv'e/shouldv'e won by 5.

Congrats to Glover. I'm just relieved that it's over. Painful weekend+ of golf to watch.

Barnes choked, he was 11 under at one point. Phil did not choke. The last 4 holes on Bethpage Black are impossible and Glover finished them even par today. He earned it.

The US Open is a survival test and Lucas Glover survived the best! No choking required!!!

Glover was stone cold down the stretch. He played smart and hit the shots. Props to him for doing that, while all the big names nipping at his heels kept goofin up.

I've said it a million times, it's all about putting. Lucas made the putts he needed to make, everyone else didn't. The flat stick separates the "want to be's" from the champions. Congrats to Lucas!

Just when you think Mickelson will step up above the rest, he doesnt..its not the first time. I dont think he choked but he missed some key putts and Lucas made all of his. Great win for him!

Real disappointing for a lot of people who were pulling for Phil.

Phil didn't really choke, he played like a normal human being. We are all so accustomed to Tiger making everything down the stretch, it holds other golfers to such a high standard. Phil missed a few nasty bending 5 footers. He also dropped some 40 footers yesterday so it all evens out. Glover deserved it. One 3 putt all week at the US Open while leading the field in GIR, how can anyone say he didn't deserve it.

My final US Open comment- If you have a chance to go to the US open...DO IT! It was the most organized and well put together sporting event I have ever been to...hands down!

Congrats to Lucas! - he played some smart golf. Goes to show that keeping it in the fairway makes a big difference.

I second JBird's notion. Although I disagree with the laissez-faire attitude when it comes to disordily behavior (heckling + golf = general misery) I have to admit that the USGA did a helluva job organizing everything (the Jones Beach shuttles really couldn't have been any more convenient) and I had an absolute blast. This was my first pro tourney and I can't wait to do it again.

On a side note, I thought the crowd became an added distraction for Phil. I understand it was mostly positive, but it was like he was in a parade while he was walking the fairways, especially when he got close to the greens. He felt like he had to acknowledge every comment that was thrown his way.

David Duval said after it was over "I had no question in my mind I was gonna win the golf tournament today". I would LOVE to know at what point of the day he actually felt that way. That seems to be a bit unrealistic, I doubt that Lucas Glover didn't think he was going to win until his last putt was in the bottom of the cup. There's a lot to be said for thinking positive out there, but you still have to execute to close the deal. You would think after all these years of eating humble pie he would have learned something. It's good to see him put four rounds together, but he's talking like it's the 90's when he was number one.
