Whether he likes it or not Tiger Woods is still the face of golf despite not winning a major tournament for a few years.  Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson is the pairing that will receive the most attention in the first and 2nd rounds of the U.S. Open beginning Thursday at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.  Tiger is coming off a win at the Memorial and seems to be playing his best golf in years.  Mickelson is still a factor and Bubba Watson is a young emerging star coming off winning the Masters in April.  The 3-some will tee off at 9:33am (CT) today.
