    Your four picks are the top four players at this time. Will be difficult to beat you!!! I like the underdog. It's 2020. Anything can happen.

    Senior US Open, yes. Wingfoot with the youngsters, no.

    I would love to see him finally get a US Open, but I believe that window has closed. Last year at Pebble was his last, best hope.

    I do too. And Bethpage, Muirfield, St Andrews, Pebble, Cypress, Marion, Augusta, Colonial, Bandin Dunes....did I leave any out? Lol

    Oh and Spieth finds magic and races around the green like Hale Irwin back in the day!

    The most exciting TV scenario possible would be for Phil to gack it away on the 72nd hole........again. Tin Cup infamy!

    Man it would be fun to see him in contention. Don’t think it would happen but who knows, Hogan had some moments in the US Open as he got older.

    I'd love to see him win this one. Broke my heart when Watson folded at the end of his last British Open.

    Poor Cink, he’s not remembered as the winner of that open, Watson is remembered for losing it.

    Yep. He played well, but was in the shadow of all the "almost" record-setting drama.

    So, the Golf Chanel pundits are speculating if this will be Phil’s last US Open. Barring a win, high enough finish to auto qualify next year, or an improved World ranking by next year’s cut off date; Philly Mick may not be invited again. That leaves open qualifying or winning the US Senior Open to qualify in future events.

    Could be an end of an era come Sunday night.

    He'll finish runner-up.

    ...for the 7th time.

    Jack Nicklaus was asked to assess the closing holes at Winged Foot. “The last 18 are very difficult” he said!

    Don’t expect RED numbers this weekend!!!
