Let's start with the winner in Memphis from Sunday.

@DJohnsonPGA What a wild weekend!! Big thanks to @fesjcmemphis, the fans, sponsors - but most of all the kids at St Jude!!! Getting on Olympic today!!

Another man headed to San Francisco is Colt Knost, the 2007 U.S. Amateur champion at The Olympic Club and the second alternate out of the Columbus sectional. He was invited into the field on Sunday.

@ColtKnost Just got the call!! Playin in my 1st major this coming week at the US open at Olympic Club. Can't wait to get back. Love that place

Graeme McDowell missed the cut in Memphis and was already on the ground in San Francisco on Sunday.

@Graeme_McDowell Single file down the last fairway here at Olympic!

Keegan Bradley was also already in town, taking in a different kind of scenery.

@Keegan_Bradley I'm down at pier 39 looking at the sea lions. Oh wait that's a human.

One person who is not in the field this week is Lee Janzen. The two-time U.S. Open winner took his second major title at The Olympic Club in 1998. Zach Johnson thinks Janzen should have been given an exemption by the U.S. Golf Association.

@ZachJohnsonPGA Usually don't get into politics but the @USGA should extend a spot to @LeeJanzen. '98 Olympic Champ. No excuse is valid. #2timeUSOpenChamp

Finally, as the men travel out to San Francisco for the second major of their year, the ladies of the LPGA are leaving Rochester, N.Y., after finishing theirs at the Wegmans LPGA Championship.

@Lexi Living the LPGA life, flight is delayed a few hours. Gota love it :P haha #chillin
