Is it just me or is golf just as exciting, if not more, now that Tiger Woods is blowing up round after round? Tiger, a 3-time U.S. Open Champion, missed the cut after shooting 16 over par on Thursday and Friday. The course at Chambers Bay has proven to be extremely tough and some golf fans are complaining that the course is too difficult. However, as someone who is so bad at golf that I simply quit playing, I find it somewhat refreshing watching professionals struggle to this extent. Today, Jason Day battled vertigo symptoms throughout his round but still has a share of the lead at -4 along with Dustin Johnson, Branden Grace, and Master’s champ Jordan Speith. In other UK related news, former Wildcat J.B. Holmes is just 3 strokes back of the leaders! Tune in on Championship Sunday to watch J.B. make his run at the U.S. Open championship!
