Congressional Country Club

Congressional Country Club, When the final putt is holed at the U.S. Open This week, fans at Congressional Country Club will see a highlight of one of the best players in the sport. Or just as likely, a guy who could not have picked a police conference two days before. “It’s a fun game,” said Ernie Els, twice U.S. Open winner. “You start getting good chances and when you start getting good opportunities to the belief he can win is stronger.” Call parity or mediocrity, but this is the most important reality in golf lately. We love to paint the four major tournaments such as the true test of golf, reserved only for the best champions, but the truth is something entirely different.
Any Tom, Dick Harrison Frazar or you can win one of these, and as proof, see recent results. Graeme McDowell won the last U.S. Open. The victory came exactly a victory on U.S. soil in his career – which links it with Charl Schwartzel, who won the Masters in April. Louis Oosthuizen won the British Open. Her second best result was finishing an important post in the 73rd PGA Championship in 2008; the only time he made the cut in one. Martin Kaymer, reigning PGA Championship, is a skillful player who rose as high as No. 1 in the world this season. However, a solid curriculum is not a prerequisite for winning a major, and the U.S. Open has had more than its share of anonymous winners.
Lucas Glover in 2009. Michael Campbell in 2005. Steve Jones in 1996. And the greatest of them all, Jack Fleck stunning Ben Hogan in a playoff at the 1955 Open at Olympic Club.
“One of the things that Jack Nicklaus said was that I actually found major championships sometimes easier to win than normal events,” said Schwartzel, “and that stuck to me because a lot of guys do it very important and they get more nervous than they would not play their normal game.
“If you can have that kind of attitude, their natural abilities to work in the week week, will take over and you are done best. And I think a lot of guys on the road themselves.”
Schwartzel believes that winning his first major will make it easier to win his second, but if he can claim No. 2 this week, would reverse the trend. Golfers different have won the last 10 races. The youngest player in more than one asset on your resume? Tiger Woods.
Most likely, Congress will take another champion for the first time. It could be one of the two best players in the world, like Luke Donald and Lee Westwood, players who are about to take the next step.
But it could be someone like Jason Dufner and Ryan Moore and Peter Hanson, players known in golf circles, but not household names, lifting the trophy
“I think the golfer of the 21st century is much more ready for the Tour,” said McDowell. “They play professional events, they know how to win, and is not scared. No doubt there are many first time winners emerging around the world today and the same for major championships.”
