The Al Roker Open


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – A sign that things aren’t right at the 109th playing of the U.S. Open is that Al Roker, the energetic weatherman for NBC, has gotten more face time on today’s telecast than Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson combined.

Instead of leaderboards, may we suggest large video screens that air live Doppler radar reports and precipitation totals on walking scoreboards instead of players’ totals.
