As the U.S. Open rolls around, there is a lot to be expected of the tournament. It is the U.S. Open, after all. Last year's Sunday debacle by Dustin Johnson was not what anyone saw coming, and nobody anticipated that Graeme McDowell would be taking home the trophy at the start of the week.
In 2008, who would have thought that Rocco Mediate would force a playoff with Tiger Woods?
Simply put, the difficulty of a U.S. Open course levels the playing field and creates a lot of chances for the unexpected to happen.
