2015 US Open at Chambers Bay

Recommended Posts

We are almost into 2015, and this is one of the tournaments I'm most looking forward to for the next calendar year. Not just because it's the US Open, but also because of its location. This should be a really unique challenge for a lot of the competitors, and it looks stunning!

 

Check out how the course is shaping up...

Chambers Bay is a beautiful and very tough course. It's going to be interesting to see the US Open on this type of course. I played in in 2010 and you had to run almost every shot on to the green. The course was still pretty new and the greens weren't holding really well yet. Probably the closest to links golf I have played.

The course looks cool, just now sure how it will play for the US Open with no trees and lots of angles.....oh and pretty much no rough.

I've heard the course was purpose built.  I am correct in assuming purpose built to mean for major championships, and to be a links course like they have for the British Open.  I saw a video of Bubba making some kind of outrageous sixty foot putt that when measured in a direct line was about 20ft that's some kind of crazy slope they have on that green at the least! :)

I hope the players practiced tee to green on a beach somewhere. If your not in the fairway your basically on a beach.

$5 to the first player who pulls out one of those sun tanning screens and hold it up while evaluating his shot.

      From the news feed today.
      It's sad that the first time I've heard this story was for Forest Fezler's passing but I'm glad to have read it nonetheless (I'm actually younger than the event itself 😊). Besides the fact that he had a hell of a golfer name, I think it's so awesome he had the guts to publicly throw a middle finger to the USGA in its biggest event. It's one thing to do it before missing the cut, it's another to do en route to a runner up finish on the 72nd hole. 
      I'm sure this was quite controversial when it happened but could you imagine how bad it would be if someone did it now??? Social media would explode.

      Phil had a presser the other day and said that the USGA should use a "halfer" instead of the Stimpmeter to measure green speed. Anyone have any idea what a "halfer" is and how it works. Or, is Phil trolling every golfer in the world?

      Got a little inside info from a friend working with the maintenance boys at Shinnecock; cutting the fairways at .350", and the greens at .095   Except....  two greens will be cut at .105    One of those is almost certainly the seventh, site of the debacle in the last US Open held here.  Don't know which other green is getting this treatment.

      I was lucky enough to win the grand prize for the Masters round of the #SpyStaffSlam year long contest.  The prize was ANY set of Wilson irons custom built to my specs.  This probably won't be a great review, for that I apologize.  The "challenge" I had was last fall I was custom fit for a set of Mizuno JPX 900 forged irons, so I wasn't in the market for a new set of irons.  However, I needed to get my 12 year old son a new set as he's outgrown his junior set.  I was trying to figure this out for some time in terms of what to get him, senior/ladies/reg flex, a teen set, length and all of those things that had to be figured out with a pre-teen, not to mention that he's a lefty.  So I opted to use this chance to get him his irons (yes, I was very jealous - my first real set came from Kmart).  After looking at all the incredible choices Wilson offers I settled on the C300. These are beautiful irons for sure, and I elected not to get him the forged as the regular ones, as far as I researched, seemed to have some more forgiveness.  The challenge now is what to do with length, lie and flex.  I do not live close to a fitter so I had to take the static measurements, and research online.  I decided to go with the XP90 regular flex shaft as it seemed to be on the lighter side for, but also a regular flex so he can continue to grow into them.  The stock length of these irons is long (7 iron is 37.5" compared to my standard length of my JPX 900 which is 36.75"). So I had them cut .75" short, which made them just .25" shorter than my set.  He still needs to choke down on them, but they're more manageable.  To compensate for his height and the length of the clubs, I had them set at 1* flat.  For grips I got him the standard wilson grip.  These are beautiful clubs!  He was ready to go hit them right away and so we went out.  It will take some getting used to for sure, but it will come.  So while I cannot give you a full review of performance, the process was simple and they were shipped quickly and to spec. He is now set for this year and many to come and I am so looking forward to playing golf with him and my daughter for many years. Thank you My Golf Spy and Wilson for the amazing prize! It's the closest thing to winning the lottery as I'll ever get.
