     Pro golfers aren't the only ones who get to display their
talents during the U.S. Open as several Web sites provide
extensive background and coverage of the event.   Hit the links
(literally) with iGolf's site at http://www. and not
only brush up on the latest U.S. Open news, but take a historic
look at Oakland Hills CC or read a week by week journal of Jay
Don Blake's preparation for the Open.  Or swing away with the
Golf Web at http://www. which provides an extensive
assessment and forecast of the players, as well as a prediction
of the '96 winner.  The site also offers a course map of Oakland
Hills and a "how-to guide" to the course from the last golfer to
win a U.S. Open there -- Andy North.  Surfers can also check out
current odds, fill out a poll on whether the Open should change
its playoff format, and listen to real audio from players like
Corey Pavin, Greg Norman and John Daly.  NBC Sports' golf site

gives final standings from the '95 Open won by Pavin, the '94
