J.B. Holmes Is Long

The thing about aggressive golfers, like J.B. Holmes or Phil Mickelson, is that when they hit the fairway it's a great birdie opportunity on almost any hole, no matter the distance. If they miss it, the miss is usually huge (a la Winged Foot), so this leads to a ton of birdies and a ton of bogeys.

Looking at Holmes scorecard, who is currently the clubhouse leader at one-under after an impressive two-under 68, you see exactly why this theory holds true. Also, throw in a testing course like Oakland Hills and you better just hope the bad shots lead to bogeys, and not those nasty "others."

Holmes, and his extremely classy black golf glove, is currently tied with Phil Mickelson (seriously), Aaron Baddeley and Sergio Garcia in a major that is shaping up to be the best leaderboard we've had all year on the weekend.

Could anything be better than a Garcia-Mickelson final pairing? I'd love to see them tied for the lead heading to 18 on Sunday. Which one makes the triple to the others double to lose by a shot?
