Where will the cut for the U.S. Open fall?
At 4 over par?
5 over par?
Perhaps at +3?
The cut is changing every minute, going back and forth between +4 and +5 because golfers are still on the course at Congressional. At the moment, the cut is at 4 over. That means that golfers +4 and under will be playing this weekend. Those at +5 and above will be free to enjoy the fine and, for the most part, free museums of Washington, D.C.
Among the golfers who would not, at the moment, make the cut are: Trevor Immelman, Francesco Molinari, Miguel Angel Jiminez, and Ian Poulter, who was getting helpful not-so-helpful advice on Twitter.
Morning folks, woke up to alot of you telling what I’m doing wrong so funny to read. Terrible clubbing, over swinging, to negative, ha ha
That’s much better now i hope I can put everything into play that I’ve learnt on twitter in the last 10 minutes & go find myself a US Open.
