Pairings To Watch

Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth

Kaymer may be in the lead, but this pairing of Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth may draw more galleries throughout the day. Spieth is the young challenger who nearly won the Masters and is already a fan favorite, and Scott is arguably the best golfer in this field who is looking for his first ever U.S. Open title.

If Scott in particular can play like he did Friday, he may find himself right in the hunt come Sunday.

He posted a three-under par 67 thanks to dazzling work with his putter (26 putts), which helped make up for the fact that he missed seven of the 18 greens in regulation.

As for Spieth, he looked primed to win the Masters until he lost his three-stroke lead on the final day to Bubba Watson. He certainly has plenty of time in his career left to rack up major victories at only 20 years old, but the only way to do that is by putting yourself in contention on Sundays.

Spieth will not be intimidated by the large galleries and will continue to post pars and the occasional birdie (he is one-under par on the tournament). If Kaymer struggles even a bit, that will be enough to climb back into the race.

 

Martin Kaymer and Brendon Todd

The fact that this pairing is on the list is admittedly all about Kaymer, although Brendon Todd has performed admirably for a golfer that isn’t on the radar of a lot of casual golf fans.

Perhaps fans should start paying attention to Todd though if he keeps playing like he has recently, as the PGA Tour notes:

However, Kaymer was the one setting the record with his 130, and given the reputation of Pinehurst No. 2, we expected more 130s after one round than two. Kevin Na seemed to agree in his post-round comments, according to Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press, via PGA.com:

I heard he played the No. 3 course. Is that true? It's unbelievable what he's done. Is 4 or 5 under out there? Yes. Ten under out there? No, I don't think so. I guess it was out there for him. I watched some of the shots he hit and some of the putts he's made and he looks flawless.

Chuck Burton/Associated Press

There is a different type of pressure playing with a clear lead on the weekend at a major, and that is what makes this pairing so interesting.

If Todd can rack up a couple of early birdies, he could put some serious pressure on Kaymer that would honestly be the first pressure he has felt on the scoreboard for the majority of this tournament.

The thought here though is that Kaymer responds well. He is absolutely dialed in and hitting fairways, connecting on putts and scrambling when he actually does miss a green in regulation. In fact, he tallied three par saves from three different bunkers Friday, which is a testament to his short game. 

Kaymer won’t post another ridiculous 65 Saturday, but he will maintain a healthy lead heading into the final round.
