Tournament: United States Open Location: Merion GC, Ardmore, PA Dates: 6/13/13 – 6/16/13 This week marks the start of the second major of the 2013 season, better known as the US Open.

But there are a couple other guys I am going to keep my eye on as well. Here’s a look at my top contenders this week at the 113th United States Open. Tiger Woods Well, this is the easy one.

Tiger Woods Surprised With Question From Neice During News Conference, Arranges Dinner Plans on Spot (Video)

If you’ve never been in a Tiger Woods news conference, it’s quite a scene.

Tiger's road to his golf recovery

This week's U.S. Open marks a once-inconceivable five years since Tiger Woods last won a major championship, that victory coming in a memorable Monday U.S. Open playoff against Rocco Mediate at Torrey Pines in June 2008.

We are not ******* around today, people.  It is one of those days where we get everything off of our barrel chests.  It has been awhile since my normally mild-mannered and civilized self has done this but after watching a few hours of Chris Berman make sweaty, drunk, and gross love with Roger Maltbie yesterday, I am all out of sorts. ...
