Here's your June 3rd Pin Sheet: Matt Kuchar wins Memorial. Karrie Webb earns 39th career LPGA victory. Michael Putnam goes back-to-back on Web.com Tour. Russ Cochran takes Champions Tour Charity Classic. Mikko Ilonen wins in Sweden. Alabama wins NCAA Golf Championships.   ***US Open Qualifying*** USGA's live updates page. GolfChannel's "Golf's Longest Day" Twitter feed.   Kuchar proved his mettle, says Rex Hoggard:  '“Second sucks,” is a phrase Kuchar would never utter, at least not in public, but know this – behind the smile and the sense of humor is the cold heart of a closer and it was on full display Sunday at Muirfield Village." In GolfChannel's weekly "roundtable", Hoggard, Will Gray and Jason Sobel have Kuchar in the US Open mix. Brian Murphy says major or not, Kuchar's on a hell of a run:  "So let's not worry too much about Kuchar needing the validation of a major, and instead admire a player with six career wins now, including the last four – the 2010 FedEx playoff Barclays, the 2011 Players Championship, this year's Match Play and now Jack's party at Muirfield Village – in heavyweight events. In case that's not impressive enough, consider that Kuchar's 35 top-10s since 2010 are best on Tour. Kuchar shows up, makes cuts, and generally plays golf better than 90 percent of the field on any given week, making us all feel lesser about how we do our respective jobs." Gene Wojciechowski wants to know what Tiger's poor Memorial means for his US Open fortunes:  "There's no way around it: Woods played poorly here. He couldn't handle the winds. He couldn't solve the pace of the greens. He didn't phone it in Sunday -- he almost never does -- but let's just say Woods wasn't sad about heading home to Florida.     So what does it mean?     Do you pull the cord on the Woods escape hatch and find a new U.S. Open favorite? Or do you do what Nicklaus advised Sunday: Ignore Woods' Memorial scorecard?" Tiger is still the favorite, but his odds have slipped.  Kuchar is now third. Interesting putting theory from Michelle Wie. Butch Harmon quits Twitter after questioning Nick Watney's personal life.   Charlie Rymer lays out the 10 Commandments of speeding up play.
