Live Awatching The U.S. Open

Dateline: Friday, June 17, 2011

C. G. C. in Bethesda, Maryland

     The second round leader of the annual United States golf invitational tournament championship is not an American but curly-haired Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland. His 36-hole score is 11 strokes under-par and he holds an eight-stroke lead over any other Yankee amateur or international professional golfer.

     Rounds of 18-holes will be played both on Saturday and Sunday about 15-miles from the U. S. Capitol Building. McIlroy held a commanding lead in this season’s The Masters and did not win after playing 72-holes; the odds of failure for this twentysomething pro are significantly less.

     None the less, McIlroy and Mickelson tee-ed their pressured shots into the water surrounding the 18th green on Friday. So, anything might happen; it shall be exciting again.

    Last year while waiting for a shuttle bus to Pebble Beach where the 2010 Open was played, I asked many who their favorite to win the tournament might be. A majority said Phil Mickelson, who has been a runner-up five times. Amazingly, three of twenty surveyed mentioned the previously obscure Rory McIlroy.
