Shane Lowry’s U.S. Open To Lose

Lowry-Bridgestone-InvitationalIt’s an unfortunate way to phrase it, but nonetheless true – with a four-stroke lead going into Sunday’s final round at Oakmont, the ’16 U.S. Open is Shane Lowry’s to lose.

The Irishman put up a 65 in the 3rd round to vault over the entire field, and he’s in great shape to take this with an an-par or 68-69 round.

It would be hard to see anyone making up that much ground if Lowry doesn’t implode.

He’s in the final group with a guy ranked in the hundreds, and Dustin Johnson will be in the 2nd-last group – but starting 4 back of Lowry.

There are only 2 major champions in the Top 10 (Jason Day and Zach Johnson are a +1, T9), but they’re 8 strokes adrift, so it looks as though, whatever Lowry does, this year’s U.S. Open Champion is nearly a sure bet right now to be a first-time major winner.

I don’t have much confidence in Dustin Johnson right now, with his very shaky 71 yesterday after birdieing the 1st hole to go to -5… looks like another major that was ripe for his picking, that will go by the wayside once more.

Although, if Lowry boots it, I see an eventual winner in DJ, Lee Westwood or, can you imagine it, Sergio Garcia!

We’ll see though, because there are still 18 holes to be played!

Should be a great final round, with all of the potential “First Major Win!” stories that have potential, and of course, it’s Father’s Day… so a great Sunday to all.

    Am I crazy or did they just spend 5 minutes analyzing one of the Tour’s iffiest swings in order to help people swing better?

    ;- ) that 6 he made at 3 was unfortunate, a real lapse there. I wonder sometimes he might have won a lot more if he had a caddy that was better at reminding him/guiding him; or perhaps better at helping him read putts. But I have no firsthand knowledge of their interaction. Tough to fire your own brother.

    Westwood is well out of it, but
