A Busy Week for this Golf Blogger

You can be sure the calls are coming in at offices and shops across the world. Lots of golf fans are going to be "needing" the day off today as the US Open continues with a 18 hole playoff to decide the championship.

A bunch of us golf bloggers were following the action live yesterday on Twitter, the microblogging site ooo. As Tiger Woods forced the playoff with Rocco Mediate by sinking a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole, the time line lit up with awed exclamations... and shared get-out-of-work strategies. Many of us will be there today and I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that, despite the No 1 vs. No 157 dynamic, it'll somehow be close.

In addition to Twitter, the guys at Oobgolf will be live blogging the match up on their site and I'll definitely be checking that out, you should too.

Other than this continuing US Open excitement, I've got tons of great great stories in the works for you; I'm just back from an amazing golf weekend, and will be posting photos and stories on that, and I'll be up in Cromwell, CT later this week blogging the Traveler's Championship.

So...check in often. There's lots going on and I'll be posting on all of it. Now... let make that call to my office.
