This year, the U.S. Open returns to the site of it's second playing -- Shinnecock Hills Golf Club -- and the story lines abound. Can we see another first time major winner? Will Phil Mickelson finish the career grand-slam? There's more, but I've got to get to the casino and place these bets.
This year's tilt will be the 118th in history and will take place at Shinnecock on Long Island. If the name sounds familiar to those casual fans, it's for good reason. All you golf nerds like me already know the stories, the Opens, the triumph and the (relative) tragedy this legendary golf course has seen.
