If he could, Ryan Simmons would gladly take a mulligan on the entire surfing year. He's been hurt, he's been down, and when he won a tournament, he had to fork over the money to pay bills. So he's hoping the Phillips U.S. Open of Surfing at Huntington Beach, which concludes Sunday, is a little kinder to him. Simmons, 27, began the surfing season by catching pneumonia in Brazil in February, checking into a hospital with a 104-degree fever.
