US Open Golf, The U.S. Open, the second of the four major golf tournaments in 2011, tees of Thursday morning at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. With Tiger Woods, a three-time Open champion did not play due to injury; the determination of a favorite is difficult, writes Cameron Morfit GOLF Magazine. Much of the focus will be on Phil Mickelson, who has four victories in major tournaments but has yet to win U.S. Open. Mickelson has finished second five times in the U.S. Open. However, Mickelson has never fared well in Congress, Morfit writes. Other players to watch include Britain’s Luke Donald, the world’s No. 1-player, Steve Stricker, currently the highest-ranking American in the world and a winner at the Memorial Tournament last weekend in Ohio, the champion defender Graeme McDowell and Hunter Mahan, who shot 62 in the final round of competition was played in Congress, Morfit writes.
