He stated seventy from CBS Golf Channel analyst. And his. -- series vanity tonight at at 10 eastern David Graham McDowell telling funny stories from Ryder Cup parties. David -- now David if I said a scratch golfer was going to play that golf course. What -- a scratch golfers shoot. While -- average scratch golfer. The way it was set out. I mean no I might do that might get a run and sort of 85. Something like that. But the good easily you don't have a couple assorted day where will be different brand Andre. But that's what I said the over under to me I was putting it ninety. Yeah. Two reasonable. But how different called just for us watching because we all think and I played the quarters but nowhere near those conditions yeah. How how tough is that course -- comparable to other US open courses. Well. I think the way it was set up was very very good. If you if you look at that golf course compared to the way it's set up. For the members for instance. The fairways are about 30%. Narrower. As the Russians considerably longer. And the greens are considerably harder you know firmer and faster. With the runoff areas you know hood generally speaking the members are used to you know balls thrown off the edge of the green and stop and halfway down the slope. You know so when you. And all those factors in the speed of the greens which were just -- -- you if you -- need. On the on the ball some of the downhill putts. You know it would it would tick off on you. It's it's hard to describe the difficulty I think if you put the average golfer twenty feet from the hole. Eighteen times. You know he'd be lucky to. You know 46. To fifty parts. That's just -- they Ariza so the bowl he's getting away from these players the best players in the world. Well I I and you also had. Webb Simpson saying -- -- tiger did this fourteen times just the pressure that you have on new you know Johnny Miller pointing out you're seeing great golfers they're -- -- Jim -- doesn't do that Graeme McDowell the beast in Patrick Harrington these guys make the shots Ernie Els. Just the pressure of it you mean you could see it was tangible yesterday. Yeah -- I thought it was a absorbing I US open that's in many years you know from from day one. This is just the fairway it just gave you such a difficult. Task you know it just hit the greens. If you got out of position once and and it was one of those. Golf courses where even the short older -- part priesthood a 107 yards. And you know my sand wedge. But you know of the flag in front and first bonds being so big on the green you have to take a risk. And ordered to get it close. Prisons in the Graeme McDowell second shot had ended up on the fairway instead of being set up two feet to the right and in the rough. -- I believe we probably would be seeing a play off today. But that's then that the tolerances are so narrow. That every shot to you know you'd be understand that if you don't get a dead right will end you know you're going to be in deep trouble. He's David's attitude from CBS Golf Channel joining us Dan Patrick show Tiger Woods did not win because it is. Well because. You know he's just not there yet. -- not back I thought he was back. No no no no no apparently not. Maybe show say I mean he's shown signs the day he is it's you know Pavel doesn't -- and there's been a couple of a serious -- The last one a memorial was the most significant because. He just let the play itself you know whoever wants Hairston -- -- and you know that he may have been neagle needs of the way that he can. But. And this has been along and and and painful process for him. So I thought in the press room all week. He's you know -- he looked just beaten time by the process of you know after every round of got to come in and explain myself. It's wearing on him. But -- bad but think about it this way down if he had one yesterday. I'm with all the speculation that we're never gonna see Tiger Woods play well again and the -- with eras over and this and that and all that you pundits and of you've been saying this for the last three years had he won yesterday. He would have to win four more in order to pass Jack Nicklaus Jack Nicklaus won his last at 46. Tigers 36 I -- he has forty more chances. And when you think but in those terms and and the way that he's starting to play. You know it it looks a little more likely looks a lot more -- did a year or so ago. -- but -- set to factor in health and Jack was relatively healthy even at 46. Tiger I don't know what he's going to be like at forty. Let -- 46. Yeah he he's. He's been good over the last few months and seems to be getting stronger. And more competent with. You know Batman movies and another thing that every -- -- last week was the fact that he didn't have Sean -- with them. In touched him with a velcro that's a very good sign that he's not think integrity so much the just going out playing golf. Which is you know what he needs to -- I think that you know he's got a good chance to stand healthy enough that's for sure. Me he knows that's a very important part of it. And he he he he takes care of themselves. The best you can. I like Webb Simpson I think he's -- grinder I think that. You know we sort about a central casting if you're looking for goal for including the name Webb Simpson but. Give us an idea is we see a lot of guys young guys who win a major sometimes it's a flash in the -- a lot of times at the PGA bit. I don't know if you you can you accidentally when the US open and you know not be or go on to have something as far as a career. Well yes you can. In fact for a long time the US open was essentially the easiest of the four majors to win because -- an effort to make it the ultimate test in golf. Whoever it was that was Raanan at just made the rough so thick and the fairways so narrow that it was just the ultimate test in driving. And a reduced everybody the same level it kind of leveled the playing field. It didn't matter if you were. You know Tiger Woods or -- Corey they've installed. -- basically had to -- but I sideways. Not IP with the way Mike Davis has got the golf course setup the last few years it's -- this -- -- that's it. We we do have a shot we you can read the lie and if you're good enough you know you'd. You are able to get it on the green. Under places you miss it where you you know you can't. But do you expect Webb Simpson to be a great golfer. Yes I do I'm in over the last three years I've watched him mature. And I don't think he's one of those players that'll just win one and then disappear mean there are players especially in US opens you know that a bit of one. You know one or even -- US opens and very little else there were kind of sort of you know specialist about applauding him and keep them the ball in play and given themselves a chance come Sunday afternoon where whereas the players with the egos. Think Lawton get on the green from here -- -- you can't you got to hack it out sideways just like everybody else. Andy North won two US opens and only one other tournament. Steve Jones won the US open. Plan and not much else. And and their various other the players that have done that it seems more so in the US open than that any of the other majors. If you look at their cumulative fat wreck chords and what they've done and now. Over the years you know there sort of standalone US open winners there. So I don't think Webb Simpson is one of those I mean he's he's got everything. He's got the courage he's got the constraints -- of the finance and and the golfing intellect. You know together on those -- the golf courses. Before -- let you go it is they're better golf name and Webb Simpson. Yes there is what it really bad name. When it would would agree and I think Richard thrust. Would be I mean. Robert rock. Wait wait is there Richard thrust out there -- okay what -- talk -- think it should be. -- friends don't call and Richard idea -- and yeah it's wrong with you. Via I'm -- what else you know Duffy Waldorf. Mean it but that should be a Muppet. -- but Charles Howell the third. Yeah really mentally think of another name and Charles I mean out of the four. Really it. Webb Simpson sounds like I'd -- -- in investment firm. Yes he sounds like he should be the president of the US GA event on. And so -- went and often yes. The meaning should be had wearing had the blue blazer went down draw upon us and it's been a member of cypress point. Now. Good to visit -- it is always David good luck with the series I had a antibiotic David seventy from CBS also the Golf Channel seventy tonight at -- Tony's team.
