5:25 pm
off on number one, you're going to make the turn down there and come up on this par four. you can see behind me. it's a smallish green protected by six bunkers. but that's just part of the issue on this whole, but you mentioned it. we are very fortunate this year to have two former open winners with local roots yesterday we spoke with. michelle wie, who played her collegiate golf at stanford today. someone who grew up playing. in the east bag. it doesn't matter when you do it when a u. s open and it's career defining for paula kramer, who grew up in pleasanton, that moment was 11 years ago when she was just 23. before that open. creamer had already won eight tour events to when she was only 18. it still gives me goosebumps thinking about it. um you know, the competitor in me wants me to have it, so it's like 2020 2020, not 2010. i feel like that's a long time ago. i want it now. but at the same time
5:26 pm
you got to take it day by day kind of thing. cramer got to a million dollars in earnings younger and faster than any player in lpga history. but in recent years, her career has been slowed by a wrist injury that required surgery. she received a special exemption to play in this year's open and now at age 34 has a different perspective. i look at my career and i would say to myself if i was younger than to enjoy those winds more, you know, i was just so focus. all the time. you went on a sunday and it was like the next tournament starts monday. you know, never, ever really sat there and, you know, patting yourself on the back. i feel the best i've felt and probably six years quite truthfully. creamer now lives in florida, but hasn't forgotten where it all started. it's great to be back home. i haven't been back for quite a while. and my first stop was togo's. it's like my favorite sandwich place in the world and went straight there from the airport since that open win in 2010. cramer has one just. one tour event seven
5:27 pm
years ago. in this year of unlikely veteran winners, it would be fitting of her next to her wind comes this weekend in a homecoming. so take a look at this. guys this is a committee out here on the second green there, mowing their watering. they're checking the break. they're doing all kinds of things, and this is just one hole. so this is some of the preparation that goes into things on the day before the u. s open starts. i want to show you one of the thing that's characteristic of an open course. and you heard paul cramer talk about it. you heard michelle. we talked about it yesterday. both have had risk surgery and are recovered from that. and here's why that's important when you're playing. of course, the open courses, reward accuracy and they penalize you if you're inaccurate. so if you're out of the fairway or not around the green, the rough is very high. take a look at where that ball lays down there. you avoided the bunker, but you're in the rough, so you've got to get out
5:28 pm
of there onto the green. it's a whole different experience. try to get out of heavy rough like that. they have mowed them down just a little bit, but that's just a little bit of what they're going to be dealing with tomorrow as they try to identify the best golf was in the world. that's what he opens. all about, guys. yep. a new set of challenges. no doubt about it. but so pretty there. joe fonzi reporting live for us there at the olympic club. looking forward to the competition. thank you. full video of a police pursuit in san jose, a man fleeing on foot the officer chasing him and his cruiser before running him over backing up and hitting him again, so i'm right behind him, and then he stopped spread in front of me and my front tire caught his leg coming up details about the multi million dollar verdict and why the jury said the officer was not vaccinations? the july 4th cohen vaccination goal that now has budweiser boring a new
