US Open Final Round Live
Okay, bygones...on to the golf. It is 400pm and I have just returned home from the law college after making criminal procedure note cards all morning.
400pm: Phil is on #10 tee at +4, 1 shot back of Ogilvy.
411pm: Ogilvy makes bogey and is tied with Phil, Montie (are you kidding me?), and Furyk. Singh and Harrington are one back at +5. Can you say shootout?
416pm: KABOOM! Phil makes birdie at 11. alone at the top at +3...and NY'ers go wild!
435pm: Phil pars 12, still a one shot lead. There are 7 players within 3 shots of the lead...amazing!
442pm: Ogilvy nearly holes a bunker shot at 13. Phil has just hit a terrible shot on the par 3 13th, short-siding himself in the Ogilvy bunker.
445pm: Hey Kenneth Fairie, can you go get me a hot plate of see you later? Thanks.
449pm: Phil lips the 10 footer for par. Tied at +4 with Harrington and Ogilvy.
503pm: Phil birdies 14! 2 shot lead with 4 to play! Furyk, Harrington, Montie, Ogilvy are 2 back.
513pm: Anonymous Roommate just MySpace-stalked some 20 year-old Shelton State chicks.
515pm: Phil has a 4 footer for par on 15 to maintain his 2 shot lead. Harrington just boyeyed 16 and 17...lates.
515pm: Phil makes it! 2 shot lead and 3 to play. 3 holes which the late Dave Marr (former winner of the PGA Championship) called the 3 most difficult finishing holes in golf. This is it. The tournament is Phil's to win.
526pm: Phil plugs it in the front bunker on 16...only good news is he has a decent amount of room between himself and the hole.
529pm: Montie birdies 17. A Mickelson bogey at 16 and we have a tie ball game...just like that!
533pm: Furyk posts +6 and Harrington posts +7. Thanks for coming out.
542pm: Phil hits a tits shot from the left rough and is about 35 feet below the hole. We'll take it. Monty just dumped it short right on 18...his chance of making birdie is slim. He gets up and down and Phil has to par 18 to force a playoff.
546pm: Monty blows it 30 feet past. He misses and Phil pars 18=Phil wins.
553pm: Phil at +4, just hit fucking driver off the hospitality tent on 18. Ogilvy is at +5 and has to get up and down to force Phil to make par in order to win.
555pm: Ogilvy hits a great pitch to 7 feet or so. This is some pretty hot shit!
557pm: Ok, Ogilvy's putt for par...MADE IT! Ogilvy is in at +5. Phil has to make par to win. Pretty simple scenario: go big or go home.
600pm: Phil hit a tree and went backwards...holy shit. Now he's playing for 5 and a playoff...unbelievable. And apparently now he is going over the trees. All or nothing.
602pm: Phil is plugged in the left bunker. Has to get up and down to win.
Johnny Miller is barbecuing Phil saying he shouldn't have hit driver on 18 when he just needed par to win.
605pm: Phil is absolutely screwed. Given the lie there is little chance that he can keep it on the green. But again, this is Phil. He may have been waiting for this shot his entire life. Roll the dice big fella.
607pm: Over the green. Phil has to hole his chip to force a playoff. I am in shock. Someone go get me a scotch. Make it a double.
609pm: It's over. Congratulations to Geoff Ogilvy.
And holy shit is right. I am out.
