US Open Week!! It's un-American -- no Tiger --- and Great Scott is #1.

The Business of Golf talks the Pinehurst Placement of a Major.

Our own LPGA Member Kim Kaufmann couldn't talk during the show -- she's playing golf. That is AMERICAN. She did give us her picks -- but no Jordan Spieth. As I understand it Kim is at the women's US Open next week at Pinehurst 2 -- same course as hosting the US Open this week.

Dave Austad is passing the manufacturers savings on to his customers. He calls the two weeks before Father's Day the golf Christmas Season. Oh -- last week he did beat the host by one point -- but didn't win the week. The Show HOST didn't find orange golf pants in his size. Guess he'll have to use two highway cones to fill out his all orange assemble.

Dr. Max Reinecke-Reinecke Chiropractic joins us. Thirty two years he can quickly diagnose your condition, set up a treatment plan--and even find time to talk about Tiger Woods' FAILED back surgery.

Randy Derheim---doing his first show since turning --- 55 --- says to celebrate victory and celebrate defeat. Mr. Pinnacle has many more victories with the food he serves as Callaways, Tre, Foley's and Elements on 8th.

John Miller for partner Adam Scott--Golf Addiction.Our Adamhas he saved his namesake option to pick up at the US Open? Scott has a terrible history at the US Open -- but experts say this is a different year. Golf Addictionnext week is offering a free ladies golf introduction clinic Wednesday 7-9 to learn to play off and not have to chase the ball.

Dr. Tim Lee Burton--Speciality Orthopedics won the Yahoo Fantasy Golf numbers last week with the St. Jude Classic. His namesake --I'd Rather be Playing won the week before. Speciality Orthopedics is getting known as the place to get in and get er done often within 24 hours.

Paul Doherty-- Golf Etc has lots of answers with his golf bag analysis. But golf ball size hail has him working damage claims while he is going our show. We'll get an update on all the cars and what they are finding.
