So what's David Duval's motto this week? "Strike while the fire is hot"? "Wake up and smell the coffee"? "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen"? "Burn, baby, burn"? All right, so Duval wants to win the U.S. Open in the worst way, but second-degree burns probably aren't the best way to get ready. Maybe it's not going to matter that Duval burned his right thumb and index finger on a teapot last Friday and couldn't play at all until his practice round here Tuesday morning.

After three days, 54 holes and enough layers of pain and suffering to pave Tobacco Road, the U.S. Open lurched toward conclusion today at a mean old place called Pinehurst that has Martha's Vineyard left nearly every one of the finest collection of golfers in the world dazed, confused and way over par.

John Cook finished with a 77 and you couldn't exactly say he enjoyed the experience. He also predicted a difficult day for everybody else. "I played this as a par 88," Cook said. "I had 12 birdies. A birdie today is out of the question unless you are off the green and chip it in or hole a bunker shot or make a 30-foot putt. You're not going to get it close from anywhere on the fairway." Cook went from seven over after two rounds to 14 over after three.

What a Retief. Somebody finally won the U.S. Open. At the point in Monday's U.S. Open playoff where Retief Goosen jumped five shots ahead of Mark Brooks, he had played 10 holes and needed only 12 putts. Isn't that the same number of putts he had on the last hole Sunday? Maybe it just seemed that way. If there is anything we should have found at the 101st U.S. Open, other than a bad case of sunburn, it's that the mind can play tricks on you . . .
