Found June 17, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

As tough as the golf course played this weekend, the fans in attendance were as loose with their expressions.  You didn’t hear as many of the usuals – “you da man” and “get in the hole”.  Instead, the San Franciscans brought out their weirdness.  I’m not sure if shouting out off-the-wall stuff is par for the course in San Francisco (I’m not judging, but I considered it) or if someone was trying too hard (more likely) to be funny.

On Thursday, two goofballs combined for a “filet mignon” and “medium rare!”


On Saturday, Woods was greeted with what ended up being our favorite for the tournament. Some hot shot shouted a “yeah playa!” after his tee shot on 18.


On Sunday as Jim Furyk was plugging along before he collapsed, another food reference was made. This one has been done, but we still don’t get it.


Fred Flintstone attended Sunday’s round at the Olympic Club and apparently was/is a big fan of Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell.


And finally, this geek was a prime example of working way too hard to make yourself heard on television. Ba Ba Booey, really? And you said it twice? I’ll bet my left thumb that he was recording this at home and sent umpteen text messages to his buddies asking if they heard him. Put it on your resume, pal. You should be proud.


Column: Rock-steady Jim Furyk fizzles in US Open

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist His swing was always loopy. But everything else about Jim Furyk? Rock steady. Furyk was so predictable that his nickname used to be ''T4'' - shorthand for someone who ties for fourth - because he always sneaked up the leaderboards late without scaring anyone that he might actually win. And then along came...

Fan yells “Mashed potatoes” after Jim Furyk tee shot

On Thursday at the U.S. Open, it was “filet mignon” after a Tiger Woods tee shot.  Sunday, it was “mashed potatoes” after a tee shot from Jim Furyk on the par 4 sixth hole.  I must be missing something.  What’s in the water in San Francisco? If someone has any clue as to this new fad of yelling delectable foods after tee shots, please clue me in.  And then throw a filet...

On Paper, Upset Potential, Don’t Bother: US Open Final Round

On Paper Leaders Fall Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell seem to have the field in their rear view but if history teaches us anything, neither of these players will win.

Beau Hossler walked down the second fairway at Olympic Club, suddenly surrounded by a throng of fans shouting, "Let's go Beau! Let's do this!"

Simpson grabs US Open as others falter

Here's what should've happened on an eerie Sunday, shrouded in San Francisco fog, at the United States Open. Pennsylvania-tough Jim Furyk should've won a deserved second Open, and cemented his place among the best players of his era.
