Former major champion Michael Campbell believes Oakmont will provide a demanding challenge for the players at this weeks US Open. The 47-year-old, who memorably saw off Tiger Woods to win the title at Torrey Pines in 2005, finished tied-58th the last time the tournament was held at the venue in 2007. Just six players finished better than 10 over par for the tournament that week in tough scoring conditions and Campbell expects the players to have to contend with similar problems this time around. Campbell made the cut on the mark in 2007 before rounds of 75 and 79 over the weekend It is a brutal course and one of the toughest Ive ever played, Campbell told It has the combination of fast, undulating greens like Augusta with thick rough, making it a true test for the guys to play.When I made the cut in 2007 I remember coming off after playing four rounds and feeling exhausted for a week, as its such a long and mentally draining course.I think youve got to have all departments of your golf game firing at 110% at Oakmont. The USGA always sets up their courses to be close to unplayable, to the point where the winner who holds that trophy at the end deserves it. Campbells major Michael Campbell recalls his win in 2005 A number of players have already described the challenges faced at Oakmont, with Phil Mickelson labeling the Pennsylvania course as the toughest he has ever played.The worlds top three of Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy all head to Pittsburgh off the back of wins in recent weeks, with Campbell finding it hard to pick a player to win the second major of the year. All the players can do is try to grind every single shot and go out and give everything theyve got, Campbell added. Angel Cabrera shot five over to win the tournament when it was last held here in 2007 and youre definitely going to see plenty of guys scoring in the 80s this week.Dustin Johnson is someone who could have an advantage over the other guys, as hes powerful, long and has a great little short game. Last years runner up Dustin Johnson heads to Oakmont in good form I love his pitching and he has a wonderful touch around the greens, too, so the course should suit him.Jason Days another powerful player who is likely to do well and then theres the likes of Jordan Spieth, who plays very different to Dustin and Jason because hes much more of a scrambler. Choosing a winner is going to be very tough.Watch the US Open live from June 16-19 on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Relive Campbells 2005 win US Open latest news Doughertys Oakmont memories Golf live on Sky Sports Edin Dzeko Jersey .

The cause of his death is as of yet undetermined, but police said foul play is not suspected.OAKLAND, Calif. - James Michael McAdoo signed a 10-day contract Monday morning after getting called up from the NBA Development League. By late afternoon, he had teammates and fans cheering his debut and went home with the game ball.Thats the kind of season it has been for the Golden State Warriors — everythings working, and everybodys contributing.All 13 players on the active roster scored, and the NBA-leading Warriors matched a franchise record with their 16th consecutive home win, whipping the Denver Nuggets 122-79 on Monday.I told the guys after the game, Im not taking this for granted, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. This is so unique to have a group pull for each other that exhibits the selflessness where, from one night to the next, somebody isnt going to get a lot of points or a lot of shots. And it doesnt seem to bother them.Which is what made Mondays matinee so special.The Warriors (33-6) dominated Denver in such impressive fashion that everybody got a chance to shine. Klay Thompson (22 points) and Stephen Curry (20 points and eight assists) led the way, as usual, and the reserves never relented in the fourth quarter.That included McAdoo, a call-up from the Warriors D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, who kept the crowd entertained and energized. He threw down a dunk and received a standing ovation after blocking Randy Foyes floater.It felt amazing, said McAdoo, who finished with 11 points and five rebounds in 13 minutes.The Warriors out did Denver (18-23) in nearly every major category, including shooting percentage (54.3 per cent to 34.5 per cent), rebounds (53 to 39), assists (30 to 17), blocks (six to three) and steals (10 to nine). The victory topped Golden States 126-86 win over Philadelphia on Dec. 30 for the largest margin this season.Denver offered little resistance. Ty Lawson finished with 19 points and six assists, and Jameer Nelson had 14 points and five assists for the Nuggets, who have lost three in a row.We didnt compete. We looked like we wwere scared, said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw.ddddddddddddIm trying to be guarded in what Im saying because I dont want to throw anybody under the bus, but I just dont understand how as a team we cant come out and compete when youre playing the best team in the league.Golden State was playing its fifth game in seven days — or 6 1/2 days, as Kerr called it — including three of the previous four on the road. In a rare early afternoon start on the holiday honouring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the Warriors showed no signs of wearing down.The combination of Golden States smothering defence and offensive efficiency with Denvers poor shooting created the perfect conditions for a blowout — one that set all kinds of benchmarks.The Warriors outscored Denver 25-15 in the first quarter, which tied the fewest points the Nuggets had scored in the opening period all season. They began the second quarter on a 22-5 run and carried a 55-28 lead into halftime.It was the fewest points the Nuggets have scored in a first half since March 2004 and matched the fewest points the Warriors have allowed in any half this season. The Warriors went ahead 85-49 late in the third quarter before Kerr sat most of his starters.TIP-INSNuggets: The fewest points Denver had scored previously in a half this season was 32 against Indiana on Dec. 20, when the Nuggets scored a season-low 76 points. ... Forward Danilo Gallinari sat out for the 14th straight game because of a torn meniscus in his right knee. He could return later this week.Warriors: Tied the franchise record last accomplished in 1959 — when the team still played in Philadelphia — for the most consecutive home wins. They are 18-1 at Oracle Arena this season. ... David Lee scored six points. He needs nine more to reach 10,000 for his career.STAT OF THE DAYIt was the first time in franchise history the Warriors had 13 players play at least 10 minutes.UP NEXTNuggets: host San Antonio on Tuesday.Warriors: host Houston on Wednesday.
