Man, My Wrist is Starting to Hurt
Day two is history, and so are the following names : Luke Donald, Phil Mickelson, Sean O'Hair, Davis Love III, Colin Montgomerie, Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia.
The two names that are leading this crazy ass circus tournament - Angel and Bubba. Hold on, let me check that again....yep, Angel and Bubba are leading the 2007 U.S. Open (somewhere at a golf course in Heaven, Bobby Jones and Byron Nelson are rolling their eyes).
Nobody is under par and unless Angel holes out for eagle on the first hole, we shouldn't see another golfer in red until Tiger Woods wears it on Sunday. Speaking of El Tigre, he shot 74 and is only five shots back, tied at 13th position.
The round of the day was Paul Casey's 4-under 66, with Stephen Ames carding the only other second round score under par with a 69.
What happened to Nick Dougherty after he got to 3-under for the tournament with a birdie on his fourth hole? Well, he finished with six bogeys and a double to shoot hockey sticks.
Bottom line - this course looks like about as much fun as Nair-ing my 5 o'clock shadow. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall as the Oakmont members gather to play a game of Snooker tonight? I'm sure those guys are kookier than Dr. Kevorkian.
Guys to watch come Saturday - Cabrera (E), Chad Campbell (+5), Tiger (+5), and Lee Janzen (+6).
