Conichiwa golf fans, time for everyone’s favorite segment, the picks.

This week, we’re adding our latest correspondent, JayV to the running, and while it might seem dickish to give him last place points so late in the game, if anyone can conjure up the minor miracle it’ll take to unseat yours truly, it’s Jay.

And while we’re welcoming Jay, I’d also like to point out the incredible feat achieved by our very own Schneider.  This week, the impossible was proven possible as Mr. Schneider managed to miss a cut in an event without a cut.  Shit like that doesn’t happen everyday, my pretties, and honestly, my belief in the supernatural has been reinforced.  It’s not everyday that you get to witness the hand of God in action, so savor the flavor.

Anyways…here are the current standings.

  1. Savant096 – 257
  2. Lefty – 476
  3. AC – 529
  4. Schneider – 629
  5. Tips – 650
  6. Old man penna – 713
  7. JayV – 713

Now onto the picks… (more…)

A little over a week ago I caught a segment of Tee Time, a talk radio show hosted by Steve Czaban. If you don’t know Czaban, he’s a sports radio guy who primarily co-hosts a weekly show with Andy Pollin called The Sports Reporters. However, he happens to be a scratch handicap and knows a thing or two about the game of golf. During this particular day, Czaban was discussing the current state of the PGA Tour, the prosperity it experienced during the Tiger Woods dominance, and what would need to happen for the tour to continue to grow should Tiger fail to find his game again. Considering that all year-long it’s been only questions focusing on Tiger and his “struggles” on and off the course and not the future of the tour, I found this to be an interesting question. But it was Czaban’s next statement that made the topic really become seriously interesting to me as a fan of golf. (more…)

Here is your score update for our national championship, as we head into the third round:

Leaders:

  • Greame McDowell -3
  • Phil Mickelson -1
  • Ernie Els -1
  • Ryo Ishikawa -1
  • Dustin Johson -1
  • Jerry Kelly E
  • Paul Casey E
  • Brandon de Jonge E
  • Alex Cejka E
  • K.J. Choi +1

As for the Tuna Golf staff picks:

  • Phil Mickelson -1
  • Lee Westwood +3
  • Tiger Woods +4
  • Nick Watney +5
  • Zach Johnson +7
  • Tom Watson +8

On another note, the course seems extremely fair this year, and it looks like we’re now firmly in the era of the kinder, gentler U.S. Open.  Except, of course, for the green complex at number 14.  It’s been a bloodbath there so far this week.  Paul Casey, Kenny Kim, Ian Poulter, and Y.E. Yang all carded an 8 there, while Zach Johnson posted a 9.  Absolutely brutal.

Ten years ago this week, Tiger Woods put on what is most likely the greatest major championship performance in golf history, when he won his first of three US Open Tournaments at the 2000 Open at Pebble Beach. He overpowered a course that did not allow another player to even match par, let alone be under it. His 15 stroke victory will probably live at the highest winning margin in major golf history.
