Challenging Open venues don't always equal great TV
Webb Simpson and his wife belatedly reacting to a tape-delayed broadcast of a missed Graeme McDowell putt isn't exactly the stuff of "Golf's Greatest Finishes" — type programming.
Even if McDowell had been in the final group and not off the course when McDowell and Jim Furyk finished up Sunday evening at Olympic Club, his run of eight consecutive pars to close would hardly have seemed clutch.
Such was life at another brutal U.S. Open, where Simpson's 1-over-par 281 was enough to win. It's the fifth time since 2005 that nobody has broken par at the Open. This may not have been 2006 and 2007, when Geoff Ogilvy and Angel Cabrera won at 5-over, but it wasn't far behind.
