US Open Golf 2016
What: 2016 U.S. Open golf championship
Where: Oakmont Country Club, Oakmont, Pa.
When: June 16-19, 2016
Spieth was able to win his first U.S. Open championship at Chambers Bay in 2015, but his play has been inconsistent as of late. He will need to find his game, as Day has been excellent this season.
Phil Mickelson’s best days seem to be behind him.
The 45-year-old has not won a tournament since 2013, which is a far cry from the form that saw him win five career majors. However, the conditions are right for Mickelson to put on a revitalized performance.
He has looked solid in recent outings, as he finished fourth at the Wells Fargo Championship in May and shot 10 under at the Memorial Tournament in early June. He was in contention at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing tied for second.
The U.S. Open has always eluded Mickelson, and he was the runner-up six times in his career. As age starts to become a factor, this may be Mickelson’s best remaining shot at capturing the tournament title.
The greens at Oakmont are typically fast, but Mickelson has putted well as of late. He nailed this long putt at the St. Jude Classic, courtesy of the PGA Tour:
Mickelson acknowledged this part of his game after his round Saturday, per CBS Sports’ Kyle Porter:
I need to strike it like I did last week, said Mickelson. It’s very close. Rhythm has been a little bit quick. The transition has been quick. I’ve managed it so far and I’ve been putting really well. Giving myself a few six to 10-footers I should be able to capitalize on those the way I’ve been putting.
My critical putts from 10 feet and in are really the putts that you need to make to keep rounds going, to get up into contention. Those are the ones that can go either way, and I’ve made a lot of them this year. So, that gives me a lot of confidence heading into the treacherous greens at Oakmont.
Expect Mickelson to feel plenty motivated to win this tournament. He may not get the victory, but he will have a say on the outcome.
Day and Spieth Will Pace the Field
Day was in position to win the tournament last year, as he held a share of the lead after three rounds. Yet, he was overcome by symptoms of vertigo and fell out of contention.
