During his final two rounds at Erin Hills, Brooks Koepka had a weekend score of 135 on his way to winning the U.S. Open.
J.J. Watt and his brother Derek nearly matched Koepka’s score in a single Cheap Ireland Soccer Jerseys round at Erin Hills on Monday.
J.J. Watt tweeted a picture of Monday’s scorecard that showed his 117 was actually the best score of his foursome that also included Derek, who posted a 131. Their poor friend, Joe, however, shot a 140.
The Texans defensive end and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year poked fun at himself while praising this year’s U.S. Open host course for being difficult. Watt missed all but three games last year because of back surgery, but was cleared for football activities in February. It would appear he’s feeling just fine, just maybe not about his golf game.
The high round shot during this year’s U.S. Open was an 83, but Derek Watt — a Chargers Cheap Jerseys And Snapbacks fullback — surpassed that on the 12th hole.
The strikeout concerns might not be a big a deal. Jung-Ho Kang, who became a power bat with the Pirates until running into a slew of legal troubles, also had a high strikeout rate (21.2 percent in 2014). At the same time, Kang also walked well-above league average for the last three years of his KBO career before signing with the Pirates.
Na, on the other hand, has not shown himself to be as selective. In 2013, 2014 and 2015, he had 7.2 percent, 7.8 percent and 5.1 percent walk rates, respectively — all less than 1.5 percent from the league average. While he has a decent hit tool and a plus power tool, the relative lack of walks could be an issue. The scout went on to tell me that Na “profiles more as a no. 5 hitter in the lineup” because of those tendencies.
