This Is How You Know The U.S. Open Didn't End The Way Most People Wanted It To

Seconds after Lucas Glover snatched his wife into a victorious embrace, we received three emails from readers with screengrabs of her pit sweat. I'm surprised Dan Jenkins didn't Twitter about it.

Yes, it was noticeable, I guess, but NBC insisted on doing close-ups of her giant sunglasses throughout most of the last hole, scrutiny was expected. But some people are happy that Glover held on at the end: bookmakers. According to Darren Rovell's dial-a-bookmaker-insta-quote, most people betting the tournament didn't put any serious money on Glover, David Duval, or Ricky Barnes who all finished near the top. Glover's best finish up until the Open victory was a second place finish at Quail Hollow. Oh and how did Mickelson feel after he came tantalizingly close to winning this goddamn tournament again and the surrounding Hallmark storyline that accompanied it this year? Terrible, obviously.

"Certainly I'm disappointed," Mickelson said, "but now that it's over, I've got more important things going on. "And," he added, then paused, "oh, well."


Poor Phil.
