Sh!t sign me up! I'm more than happy to put up an 85 in the open. I'd be playing golf on TV!

I would be ecstatic to put up an 85 on TV. But not the 125 I fear I would make. After watching Phl I wanted to play it. After watching Tiger not so much.

When I said I wanted to drive the ball like Tiger all those years ago, I didn't mean for him to come down to my level. Now all he needs to do is shorten his distance 100 yards and he will have done it.

America's Championship is here.   Can Phil complete the career Grand Slam? Will Tiger survive into the weekend? What about Rory or one of the other young guns? Is there a darkhorse in the field? Is

I hope they don't change a thing at Chambers. I love this. It shows that even the best in the world can struggle. To hear guys like Garcia complaining about the greens (and they kinda look like what I'm playing on right now) is terrific. I don't want to see -26 win the tourney. I love it when the field can't break -10 under. 

 

The Dustin Johnson tee shot that mae it to the green and rolled all the way around the green to settle like 12 feet away was, for me, the shot of the day right there!

I think his course would suit my play, saying that, I think 90 would be a good score. I think I would have good holes, and bad holes, the problem is the good holes would be only pars, and the bad holes would be double or worse

I used to live in Sheboygan and have played there a few times with some good scores but it's not a fun course. My pro said that if it were the only place he could play he'd quit golf and go skiing.

Hahahaha that's great! I actually love The Bull and consider it one of my favorites in Wisconsin. Probably played it five times and love it every time! Even drove up to play in a "big cup" tournament a few years back. Had a blast. Try and play it on the way up to Kohler or the UP any chance I get. Many people consider Nicklaus design courses stupid or way too difficult, but I really enjoy them. Harbor Shores in Michigan is another awesome Nicklaus design in the Northwoods.

The setup from what I can see is going to be tuff for everyone.  Creativity and a little luck is going to win this Major, oh and length, length will definitely help.

Should be interesting to see how they all fair playing in reverse conditions today... Tiger and the afternoon guys should post some better numbers and DJ and the boys should be closer to par. Hopefully it equals everything out for the weekend.

 

60 and ties or 70 and ties make the cut?

That would be interesting - you know I made it to the semi finals the first year that they did the break 100 on a US Open course challenge - in the end I got bumped because my handicap was too low.  They were looking for someone around a 10.  It should be noted that when they played the break 100 round the tees were all the way back - they are never all the way back on every hole in a tournament - never - big championship courses stretch to 7,600 yards for variety's sake not to be played at that distance.  It gives the tournament committee options to test the player's thinking not to bludgeon them to death.

 

Three cheers for Luiten who got a mention from some of our international friends earlier in this thread.  With only a wife and 13 year old daughter left in the house I get up early on Saturday, sit quietly in my study, sip coffee, read the news online and watch the European tour.  He's one of my favorites.

 

I won't see as much today 2:00 tee time - the girls let me watch tons of golf yesterday but I'm suspecting they won't be so compliant today -

 

I edited this to jump in on Apprenti's Bull comment - it's a lovely course - but it is also just down the street from Black wolf run - I'm taking those courses for free (one of the super's was a member of my church) over the Bull for $100 every day - if you can imagine it I'd play one of the Black wolf courses 6-8 times a season for nothing along with an occasional trip to Whistling instead (same cost) normally Irish but I've played the Straits course - just never in the proper order or from the same set of tees throughout (he could get us on at Twilight and we would hole hop to catch the different holes - you can't tell what tee box you are going to when you cut through the mounds there  - not a happy moment when you hop in and see black.)

It's tough watching the golf when it's west coast Rev, I fell asleep around 11.30pm and woods was only 4 over I think ! Coverage started at 4.30pm - but first couple of ours were a bit heavy on chatter.

Am I the only one who has immense respect for Tiger after all this? Far more than I ever did before. Can you imagine the mental fortitude it takes to continue to publicly display hacker golf as the once greatest player? Who else in the world wouldn't have just retired by now? It's almost like Michael Jordan with the Wizards, only far, far worse.

 

This dude has some brass balls.

I hear you Westy -  That's why I wrote 1 of the majors not all 4 - The bad one for me is the final round of your Open (the Open).  Yes, I can record it but the chances of one of my members not telling me what's happening before I head home from church is slim to none - I'm fortunate if I can catch the lost 4 or 5 holes live.

Mind you, I would deliberately throw those assholes in the drink. Unlike Tiger who does it on accident.

Harbor Shores is in the town that I grew up in, it opened just before I moved to South Carolina, my brothers do some steelhead fishing in the river just off the course.

I think you hit it square on the head. A lot of people seem to be looking at Tiger and laughing (as a society we seem to get pleasure out seeing people fail and in pain). He looks miserable out there. There is absolutely no joy for him in playing the game like there was at some point. It's very sad.

Really can't wait to see what day two has in store.  The course looks a little rough, but really tough.  The Fox coverage is so-so, but it's also their first, just need some time to workout the kinks.

Justin Rose just posted the pin placements on Instagram for Round 2. 

 

Notables: #12 is playing all the way up...about 40 yds shorter than yesterday (solely based on pin placement...no clue about the tee box). They could be playing a 285 yd par 4. 

 

There are 7 pins within 5 yds from the edge of a green. 

 

#14, the 520+ yd par 4...the pin is tucked 3 paces from the left edge, about 5 yds from the trap. Good grief. 

 

The pin on #1 is back left. If anyone watched the tourney, you'll know there's that giant swell to the left in which a ball that misses left rolls around 60 yds left of the green. 

 

The winds are supposed to remain calm today...around 6-9mph from the SW. I don't think we see the same number of red numbers today as yesterday, but I bet we see someone post another 65. The winds are forecasted to switch from SW to NE but remain in single digits all weekend. So much for the wind playing a factor.
