Moving day at the US Open did not disappoint. I was waiting for some amazing golf and the third day at Erin Hills was it! The leaders kept making the knockout punch against their competitors and they all responded in kind. I found the seesaw battle of the top 10 finishers amazing; none of the players carded anything worse than a 68; with a 63 and 65 thrown in the mix!
If someone was tuning in for the first time this weekend and just looked at the scores, they would never think it was moving day at the US Open!
The race for the FED Ex Cup is underway and all the points gained over the past 8 weeks count towards making the 10 million dollar pay off. I try to pick winners each week in several fantasy leagues and I can tell you from experience that it is impossible to know who will win from week to week.
For example, this week at the Sony Open Justin Thomas started the tournament with a magical 59. As the youngest player in PGA Tour history to accomplish such a feat, I am pretty sure no one predicted Thomas running away with the top prize. Keeping this in mind, it is very challenging to determine who will have the most FED Ex points leading into the playoff or is it?
Congrats to Justin Thomas for shooting a 59 at the Sony Open.
Thanks for the inspiration!
