Dustin Johnson on Fire
Shinnecock Hills is battling the entire field, except one, Dustin Johnson. The cover image says it all. Dustin has Tiger by the tail. At -4 after round two, Johnson is the only player under par. The greens are fast and hard to hold even with short irons and the rough is brutal. This environment is wreaking havoc. Pebble Beach and St. Andrews have nothing on Shinnecock this week. +8 and you’re in, +9 and you’re out. A high cut line on any course.
Tiger Woods missed the cut putting up a +10. Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Jason Day, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia, Keegan Bradley and Ernie Els were just a few others that Shinnecock chewed up and spit out.
The weekend is set with names such as Phil Mickelson at +6, Brandt Snedeker at +8, Jimmy Walker at +5 and Justin Thomas at +4.
