Bubba, my man. What you did at Augusta in April was awesome. I watched every minute and was rooting for you down the stretch. But now that you are now a major champion and I really wish you would start acting like one. I understand Olympic Club is tough, and your game plan of trying to overpower the course will just not work out there this week. Is this any reason to hold your post-round press conference and act like the there are 100 other places you would rather be than playing golf in the U.S. Open? Yes, it’s okay to be upset, but you are not Tiger Woods and you don’t have to act like a little baby and tell the golf world the “golf course is too tough for me.”
If you can somehow figure out a way to post a 1 or 2-under par round tomorrow you never know what is going to happen, especially on this course. Six or seven-over-par may still get you into the weekend and a good weekend can get you in the running, especially if the course continues to get harder. But with all your talk about the course being too tough, you have basically talked yourself out of anything positive.
This is suppose to be the toughest test in golf, it’s not suppose to be easy. I hope you get some special time with your new adopted baby tonight and come out tomorrow afternoon with a better attitude. I really want to root for you, but with all your complaining leading up to round one and then after round one, you are really making it hard for me to be a fan.
