Tiger vs. Phil at Torrey Pines. Really?

The USGA and NBC have announced that (quite vocally) that the 2008 U.S. Open will pair players on Thursday and Friday based on World Ranking. Thus, the major promotion NBC has used for the event has been, "Watch the World Number One take on the World Number Two."

Indeed, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Adam Scott will spend 36 holes (at least) in each other's presence. I suppose we will see if the "Tiger vs. Phil" match really comes into play...I would feel more inclined to get excited about this pairing if I thought we couple compare Tiger and Phil in any way, shape, or form.

On another note, I am very pleased that my run at the U.S. Open came last year at Oakmont. I would imagine that frontloading groups is going to lead to unbelievable crowd problems during the early part of the week, but, that is another issue that I suppose we will see soon.
