Just like every other major, let's try to keep everything rolling in one thread.

Thanks!

i was flipping through the guide on tv for today and i saw that espn began coverage at 11:00 am eastern, but on usopen website it says 1:00pm eastern, is this 11:00 am crap just "pregame" or is the usopen site incorrect.

thanks for any info.

Choi came out the gates firing. He certainly has the game to win a US Open with his accuracy. If the greens are holding well he will be a definite contender.

Tiger just played to the fairway from the rough on the first. So all comments made about the rough being easy are a lot of BS, sorry ...

No idea, but you can start watching on usopen.com there is a live stream 2 hours before the simulcast. I'm watching it now. It's limited to US viewers though. So use something like hotspot shield if you're outside the US, like me :russian_roulette:

Tiger +2 after 1, PM even

Looked like Adam was using the new Titileist 909 with the V2 shaft.

And yes, the deep rough looked pretty tough to get out of on the first.

man, no huge Tiger fan, no Tiger hater either, but that 1st hole was SHOCKING!!!

I really expect him to win, and I'm even leaning towards him winning by 5 or more!  He definitely is starting behind the 8 ball!

Philly boy is playing smart...that rough is NASTY!!! You better hit fairways or first cut if you want to hit greens. I give Tiger 4 holes before he turns it on. What a group!!!!!!

Announcers said Sean O'hair WD because he tore a chest muscle practicing in the rough.

Karl Ravich is horrible. This early coverage is painful.

I use a MacbookPro, so i don't know how to use it on Windows.
Here, it's just install and run. It will open a browser and connect. Wait a minute until it says it's ready and you can surf where you want. It might be slower because you are connecting through a proxy, so your own connection speed doesn't matter (if it's higher of course). It will also place a banner at the top of your browser window. It's just empty white here thanks to AdBlock.

I just love the Pimp Bishop Ho himself, Phil.  No driver on a course that has 2 of the top 3 longest par 4's in U.S. Open history!!!  In all fairness, cut the corner on the 6th hole and you can hit mid iron in.
