It's almost time for the 2014 US Open to start and, yep, we might not start it quite yet. Rain is in the forecast all weekend -- every day from here to Sunday -- at Pinehurst No. 2.
How will that affect the tournament? Well, the answer there is two-fold.
First, we could be looking at some early starts on Saturday and Sunday for those who make the cut or even a Monday finish.
Second, it will make the track a lot easier. I think 4 under or 5 under could win it if it rains a lot. If it doesn't, par is going to be your friend.
I just talked to Crenshaw the redesigner. He said if there's no rain, 280 wins.— Dan Jenkins (@danjenkinsgd) June 11, 2014
You know who wants it to rain? Maybe the only person involved with the 2014 US Open who wants it to rain is the man who could make history.
"The one analysis that I've made is that of those six top or six second place finishes, five of them it rained," said Mickelson on Tuesday. "So I'm pulling for rain."
Of course he is.
