Anthony Kim pressed a cell phone against his ear as he listened to Tiger Woods, the tournament host of the AT&T National, congratulate him on another impressive victory that seemed to mark the arrival of Americas next great golfer.
The U.S. Open moved one round closer to a conclusion Sunday afternoon, even if very little was settled on soggy Bethpage Black and the champion would not be decided for at least one more day. Ricky Barnes scratched out an even-par 70 and kept his one-shot lead over Lucas Glover.
Tiger Woods couldnt get off the course fast enough. Mike Weir, Lucas Glover, Ricky Barnes and Phil Mickelson were among those on the right side of the rain at the U.S. Open and thrilled they didnt have to leave until it was too dark to continue
Tiger Woods began his final practice round of the U.S. Open by hitting a 5-wood for his second shot on a par 4, which is rare for someone with his power. Stranger still was that it wasnt enough club to reach the 10th green.
