Last Cliche Running

Isn't it kind of insulting to refer to Angel Cabrera as the "Last Man Standing" at the U.S. Open? That suggests he won only because everyone else screwed up.

Look, the man broke par twice in four rounds, had a round of 1-over and a round of 6-over, to finish at 5-over, on a course where half the field was 11-over or worse in the first two rounds. He beat last year's champion by 14 strokes. He held off Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, and all the rest. I say, more power to him.

WaPo's headline is kinder: "Cabrera Rises Above Field."
