    US Open; 2nd Again

    by  • June 16, 2013 • Golf, Sports • 0 Comments

    The past few days, I was able to watch a good portion of The US Open which just finished. I thought it was a great tournament, but wasn’t overly pleased with the results. If my pick Dustin Johnson wasn’t going to show up, I would have really like to see Phil Mickelson win. I’ve...
