11:09 AM ET 06.05 | Everyone stopped and watched when Tiger Woods, striking in a white hat and matching shirt, approached the No. 9 green Monday morning and practiced chipping and putting at Oakmont Country Club. PGA Tour pros playing Oakmont in preparation for the 107th U.S. Open on June 11-17 found a course softened slightly by rain to be more treacherous than its predecessor. "This was harder than Winged Foot the Monday 10 days before that tournament," said Geoff Ogilvy, who won the 2006 Open with a 5-over-par 285 at the Mamaroneck, N.Y.
