Tour Pros have been humbled this weekend at Merion which showed the field that a short course isn’t always easy.
World number 1 and 2, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, can both attest after shooting respective 6 and 5-over-pars in Round 3 to completely fall out of contention.
Out of 155 golfers, Phil Mickelson sits at top the leaderboard going into Sunday and is the lone player under par (1-under overall). With five US Open runner up finishes, could this be the year that “Bitch Tits” finally wins that coveted Major Championship?
Nipping at Mickelson’s heels one-stroke behind are Hunter Mahan, Charl Schwartzel, and Steve Stricker who could become the oldest open champion in history.
Sitting two strokes back at 1-over-par overall are former number one, Luke Donald, and Mulligang perennial pick, Justin Rose!
The winning share of USD 1.2 Million+ is still up for grab. Can Mickelson grind out a win or will that Open Championship continue to elude him?
Must say I’m loving the drama… Let’s go Rose!
