If rumors are true, Pinehurst No. 2 might have some pretty famous spectators on hand for the 114th U.S. Open this week.

Can you imagine Tiger Woods at a U.S. Open that he's not playing in? I can't. Michael Jordan shouldn't be too much of a surprise. He's a well-documented golf fan and has attended many big-time tournaments. He's a regular at the Ryder Cup.
If this does come to fruition... they're going to have to be allowed inside the ropes, right?
We'll keep you posted on any developments.
