Beaten down? Or the man to beat?

Woods has won twice this year, but ... is he back?
Tiger Woods has walked a long road to rediscover his golf game, and some still question whether or not the 14-time major champion is back. “I think even if I do win a major championship, it will still be, ‘You’re not to 18 yet’ or ‘When will you get to 19?’ It’s always something,” Woods said. Nonetheless, he’s won twice this year and is the U.S. Open favorite at The Olympic Club this weekend in San Francisco.
Phil Mickelson is one-third of a popular first-round pairing at the U.S. Open this weekend. Lefty will tee off Thursday with Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson. “I think when it’s time to tee off on (Thursday), I’ll be ready to play,” Mickelson said.
Masters champion Bubba Watson will tee off with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Thursday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Together, they have won 113 and 18 majors, with Woods doing most of that damage. “I get excited to play with Tiger,” Mickelson said. “I love it. I think we all do.”
Durango has pros, too

For the 51st year, Durango’s own professional golf tournament will tee off at Hillcrest Golf Club the same time as the U.S. Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Rory McIlroy won last year’s U.S. Open, while Micah Rudosky celebrated his Father’s Day with a Navajo Trail Open championship, his third title at the Coca-Cola sponsored event.
Rudosky, who hits right and putts left, is the golf coach at Montezuma-Cortez High School and the club professional at Conquistador in Cortez.
Rudosky, whose son Jacob Rudosky will tee off in one of the nonprofessional flights, will tee off at 2:06 p.m. Friday from the first tee box with Klinton Kreiger, Jeff Roth and Matt Rutledge.
The Navajo Trail Open Pro-Am will tee off Thursday, while the 54-hole Open will run Friday through Sunday.
Other local notables in this year’s professional flight: Fort Lewis College golf coach Bud Andersen, Durango High School alumni Keenan Holt, Bob Kalinowski, Tom Kalinowski and Devin Schreiner, FLC alumni Jeremy Lederer and Luke Tanner and former Hillcrest Golf Club professional Jim Fiala.
