Oh Ricky


PEBBLE BEACH, Calf. – We’re still mulling our office pool picks for this week but if you’re looking for any early nod check out Ricky Barnes.

Barnes has a solid record at the U.S. Open (tied for second last year at Bethpage), has more top 10s on Tour this year than anyone else (five) and is a West Coast kid with an affinity for Pebble Beach.

“He’s a big golf course type of player,” said his swing coach Dean Reinmuth early Tuesday.
