    Billy is also the only player in US Open history to hit all 18 greens in one round - at least I think that's what I heard the announcers say earlier. Billy's on fire! Hope he brings his first major home this weekend!

    As a Gator, I'm rooting for Billy of course, but I'm also rooting for Stricker, who has never won a major.

    Horschel has dropped back a bit - +3 on his first nine of day 3. but the announcers are lovin' on his swing and game and swagger. a few mentions about the gators mixed in on the coverage too. billy can really tag the ball!
