Leftys story could be legendary


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Tiger Woods won the 2008 U.S. Open with a broken leg and early in Round 1 at Bethpage it appears Phil Mickelson is on the hook for Open title No. 1 with a heavy heart.

Spurred by the vocal New York masses, Lefty is 2-under following a one-handed birdie at the second hole, his 11th of the day, after driving the ball into the left rough.

Hogan at Merion, Woods at Torrey Pines, Mickelson at Bethpage. Some stories are too big to write.
