Tiger Woods may have cruised to another major championship, and Felix Casas may have shot the worst score (a 92 on Friday), but there were plenty of other winners and losers at the U.S. Open. Here's our tally.
After a thrilling Saturday, the final round was a dud, as none of the would-be challengers could make a serious run. In his last six major triumphs Woods's average margin of victory has been more than five strokes. Yawn.
He sounded like a whiny conspiracy theorist on Friday, then came undone on Open Sunday for a second straight year, this time because of jittery putting. And don't even mention those infernal waggles, which hint at a deeper internal struggle.
Despite the manufactured goodwill campaign, he missed a U.S. Open cut for the first time in his career. Be Gone with Monty?
The USGA's senior director for rules and competitions launched weeks of pretournament hand-wringing by describing the Black's greens as flat. So how come they had so much break?
Scott Hoch's fashion sense
It's one thing to wear the flag on your sleeve, but a whole shirt is a bit much. However, that 70-69 weekend was pretty sharp.
Another major, another missed cut.
As if it wasn't already hard enough to get on, now the whole world is going to want to play this $31-a-round jewel. Is anybody out there prepared to spend two nights in a car to snag a tee time?
