Tiger Woods arrives at the US Open of Pebble Beach before Koepka

El Tigre won the major in 2000 spectacularly and now returns to the appointment. Koepka has taken the last two editions. Rahm, Arnaus, Cabrera Bello and Sergio ... the Spaniards.


Year 2000. Tiger Woods left the world golf in shock with his victory at the US Open in Pebble Beach (California). It was his third big and he made -13 to the tough field. The second, Jiménez, finished in +2: 15 strokes difference. It was a sign that a player of brutal proportions was emerging. Year 2019, again there is US Open in Pebble Beach and there is the Tiger. She is 43 years old, the multioperated back and infinity of vital wounds. However, it is the season of his resurrection, because in April he won the Masters of Augusta, his best number 15, after an 11-year drought. "The best return ever seen", signed in the United States.

"I remember that time I did not take all the streets, nor the greens, but I always gave the right angle," Woods said after turning the practices to the links of the cliffs of Monterrey, in which if the wind blows on the beach (and because of the lack of protection that there is usually doing) it can become a deadly trap. There Tiger chooses to cut another big one to Nicklaus, who is 18. "The important thing for me is that I'm playing at a good level again", said seriously Woods.

But in front he will have the infallible robot. A Brooks Koepka, the 29-year-old American who won the last two PGA (2018 and 2019) and US Open (2017 and 2018) . A golfer with a non-expressive face that makes routine what is impossible for other players. His pulse does not tremble and he does not want to hear about the hardness of Pebble Beach: "We all play the same field, so I do not know what some people complain about. If you leave it well, on the street, you do not have to worry about the rough ".

And as for Spaniards, focus is Jon Rahm, who admits to feeling comfortable in California:" It reminds me of the Basque Coast fields I grew up in, Neguri, Larrabea ... ". And it warns of the difficulty of the greens of poa annua: "You know that there will be putts that will not enter". In addition, Sergio García, Rafa Cabrera Bello and the debutant Adri Arnaus will be.
