Just Haaaaanging Around
Anytime the golf course of a major championship (mostly the U.S. Open) is playing extremely difficult, it lets a ton of golfers into the mix.
A group of leaders around even-par can easily land a windy afternoon where the guy that was six-over posts a 68 or 69 and is right back in the mix. Today, at Oakland Hills, Graeme McDowell, Camilo Villegas and Andres Romero are all doing exactly that, making their way around the course in four-under par (and Villegas five-under with the possibility of moving to six with about an eight-footer on 12) on Saturday and finding themselves jumping golfers like Lebron does the Chinese.
If anyone can post a number in the red today, with weather moving in slowly around the course, anyone could find themselves in the top-10 later this evening. Well, anyone except the people that missed the cut. It would be hard for those people to improve their position.
