U.S. Open Reads: Late Tuesday Edition

us open icon.jpgA few more Tuesday stories worth your time, starting with Tod Leonard's feature on Billy Casper.

Here we are in 2006, talking about something that happened in 1959. If it had never happened,” Casper said with a chuckle, “we wouldn't be talking about it. It's pretty neat.”

Take that Yogi! Leonard also talks to Casper at length about how he laid up on No. 3 en route to his 1959 win.

Vartan Kupelian says Phil Mickelson will be employing the same strategy for No. 3 when it plays from the 243 yardage.

Ed Sherman feels that everyone needs to remember that the US Open and that a Woods-Mickelson showdown is just as like as a Stewart Cink-Ian Poulter slugfest. He, like Alan Shipnuck in the most recent SI, review the history between Woods and Mickelson in entertaing fashion.

James Corrigan in the Independent features 15-year-old, 5 ft. 1 in. amateur qualifier Tadd Fujikawa.
