U.S. Open GolfCast
Join ESPN.com's Michael Collins during Rounds 3 and 4 of the 112th U.S. Open for his unique brand of analysis and insight. The United Golf Association, which runs the U.S. Open, is in California for the third time in five years starting with Torrey Pines in San Diego in 2008 and Pebble Beach in 2010. But the U.S. Open will not return west until 2015 when it is played at Chambers Bay, near Tacoma, Wash. And it goes back to Pebble Beach in 2019. The PGA of America is a bit more mystifying. It seems willing to put up with 100-degree heat in Tulsa, Okla., a steam bath this summer at Kiawah Island and numerous East and Midwest venues that bring humidity and thunderstorms into play. The PGA of America does not have a West Coast venue scheduled. After this year, it goes to Oak Hill in Rochester, N.Y., followed by Valhalla (Louisville), Whistling Straits (Wisconsin), Baltusrol (New Jersey), Quail Hollow (Charlotte) and Bellerive (St. Louis). The last time the PGA went west was to the 1998 PGA Championship at Sahalee in Washington. Bob Harig covers golf for ESPN.com. He can be reached at BobHarig@gmail.com. Birdies And Bogeys BIRDIES Johnson 1. Dustin Johnson. A seemingly lost year is suddenly alive again for Johnson, who has had two strong performances since returning from a back issue, including a win on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. 2. Shanshan Feng. Winning on the LPGA Tour is big enough, but Feng did it at the LPGA Championship -- a major -- becoming the first player from mainland China to claim a title on tour. 3. Davis Love III. Not only did the U.S. Ryder Cup captain qualify for the U.S. Open, but he contended in Memphis, missing a playoff by a shot and setting a good example for his Ryder Cup team.
