1999 Pinehurst, final hole Phil has to make birdie to tie the late Payne Stewart he missed and Stewart made his putt to win the Open. 2002 Bethpage Black was his third straight top three finish in a major at that point. 2004 it was a par-3 and he three putt from five feet for a double-bogey, losing by two shots to Retief Goosen! Choker! 2006 Wingfoot! Come on Son! He needed just a par to win, but double-bogey and missed out on a play-off with Geoff Ogilvy by a shot.Choke JOB! 2009 lost by two shots to Lucas Glover. Phil can make some great shots, but he can close… Dukesism “WHEN IT MATTERS MOST” at the U.S. Open plain and simple he is a choker!

Put’em Up and tune in today from 2-6pm.
