I am covering the U.S. Open this week for Pittsburgh Sports Report — but sure enough — I always find myself around soccer related happenings.
During the first rain delay at the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club on Thursday, around mid-morning, many players and caddies took shelter, while others turned their attention to soccer — taking in the exciting second half of England-Wales game in UEFA Euro 2016 Tournament.
Englishmen Lee Westwood and Luke Donald along with their caddies, made their way to the media center and took in the exciting finish of England’s 2-1 win over Wales in the Euro 2016 tournament, as Daniel Sturrage scored a brilliant goal in added time to lift the Three Lions to victory.
As the group came in, 2014 U.S. Open champ, Martin Kaymer, sat next to me.
When I asked Kaymer, a German, he told me he didn’t care about the result of the English-Welch game, as he was looking forward to watching his National team, Germany, take on Poland later in the day.  (Germany and Poland played to 0-0 draw).
One player who didn’t make it over, was Rory McIlroy, who is a big Northern Ireland fan — as he was on the course when his National team beat Ukraine 2-0.
