As much as it was disappointing that a Canadian didn't win the U.S. Open when it was looking so good for Mike Weir after rounds of 64 and 70. It was still exciting to watch and was better then watching those crazy infomericals on diet pills or Viagra during some lengthy rain delays we actually got to watch some exciting golf Monday and Weir was still in it most of the day. A few too many wayward shots and not getting those clutch shots he was getting the first few days really cost him. Closing with back to back 74s Weir had to settle for a T10, Stephen Ames also finished at the same. Not to bad considering there were only 4 Canadians in the field.

The most impressive was amateur Nick Taylor coming up with the highest finish by an amateur this year at a tie for 36th.This kids got game and we'll definitely will be keeping an eye out for him in the future.
