Are you ready for this? Ok, everybody that has visited Oakmont over the past couple of centuries has talked about the toughness of the venue. Well, Day One has ended, and only two (2, dos, due, duo, deux, do, שתיים, dua, Remddu) golfers finished under par. Yep, that’s right, Day ONE has finished and only Nick Dougherty and Angel Cabrera were in red figures.
I hate to say this, but 20 over might win this thing. With all due respect, do you think there is any way Dougherty and Cabrera are on the leader board come Sunday? God love ‘em, but Jose Maria Olazabel (Even), Vijay Singh (+1), Tiger Woods (+1) and Geoff Ogilvy (+1) have to be the best looking golfers for your office pool right now in the top 20.
Not to sound too much like Jason Sobel, but Oakmont is going to win this thing by the end of the weekend, if not by Thursday around 7 AM.
Whoever first stated the words “double bogey” is resting peacefully in his grave right now.
