Case for, against favorites at Open

Notes: Tiger Woods is in the field for the first time since 2015 and will be making his 20th career appearance in the U.S. Open. His first-ever showing in the event came in 1995 at Shinnecock Hills…Woods also predicted that Long Island traffic, which has been horrible all week, could end up impacting at least one player in a major way…Phil Mickelson is searching for the final leg of the career Grand Slam. He’s finished second in the U.S. Open a record six times. Woods weighed in Tuesday on whether Mickelson will finally get over the hump…Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler have both spent the past week on Long Island playing “fun golf” to help prepare for the tournament in a slightly unorthodox way…Wet weather swept across Shinnecock Hills on Wednesday. The forecast for Thursday through Sunday looks dry, but what other conditions may impact play and could we see a delay?
