The story of the day, though, was Dennis Miller. Robert Garrigus commented on the 1992 Maxfli Tad Moore putter Miller used Monday.

@robertgarrigus Ha I won the Oregon junior Match play with that putter unreal! I still have it ;)

Speaking of putters, let's take a quick diversion to the LPGA Championship pro-am for a putter you have to see.

@RyannOToole The Weiner putter speaks for itself. You know you've seen it all once youve seen this in a pro am!

And, heck, let's retweet the reaction from one of Miller's cousins.

@CCampbell_III @RyanBallengeeGC Dennis Miller is my cousin! thanks for updating us we were following you. Unbelievable he finally made the U.S. Open

Tim Mickelson didn't get through, but Phil's brother wants to set the record straight on the grind of sectionals.

@goodwalkspoiled I used to say coaching 36 holes was tougher than playing 36 holes. Yeah, I wholeheartedly retract that statement. #sorebody

A word from Peter Jacobsen about Casey Martin, who qualified for the Open at Olympic Club, 14 years after his first trip there in '98.

@JakeTrout Casey Martin, now the head golf coach for the Oregon Ducks, is a true role model. Guts, class, perseverance and faith.

Finally, a warning from Rickie Fowler about what the field will face next week.

@RickieFowlerPGA If the conditions are right Olympic could be the toughest open test in the last few years #upforthechallenge #USOpen
