A Quick U.S. Open Update
If you're in the Long Island area, you probably know this, but the weather at Bethpage Black this Thursday morning is nasty.
Tiger Woods, who made pars on his first four holes, just made about as sloppy a double-bogey as you'll ever see the number one player in the world make.
Now, with two well-played golf shots on the 6th, Tiger has a solid birdie look in wet, rainy conditions, which he cashed. Now, Woods is just 1-over for the day.
I will be updating throughout the day on my Twitter page, so if you have a minute, swing by and check it out.
How bad are the conditions right now? On the par-4, 6th hole, that plays 409 yards, Angel Cabrera had 190 yards left into the green.
UPDATE -- The USGA suspended play before Tiger could finish the 7th hole. No word yet on how long play will be suspended.
