Martin Kaymer ran away with the U.S. Open this weekend thanks to a pair of 65s on Thursday and Friday. The calm and focused German cruised to an eight-shot win while everyone around him struggled. In similar fashion, eeyore201285 blew away the field to win our U.S. Open Five-Spot Challenge and a GAME GOLF system from GAME GOLF.
She was one of two contestants (along with MikeLongJr88) to correctly predict that the lowest score among Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell, and Lee Westwood after Round 1 would be two-under. Even more impressive, she was the only contestant to correctly predict that Westwood would miss the cut, and she hit his two-round score right on the number at 148. G0lfdell finished second in our contest with a total deviation of 153, while John Pinola Jr rounded out the top three with a score of 156.
@AaronEllis10 was the only contestant to correctly predict the total combined birdies for Furyk, McDowell, and Westwood for the entire tournament (27). Meuuuuuny and orenciaro were each one away. Saupe07 was the closest, just one away, to Furyk’s total fairways and greens in regulation hit (90), while sirbarksalot was right on with his prediction of 122 total putts for McDowell.
