The broadcast time is bad for watching over in Singapore. But I'll try to catch whatever I can. Just saw a video of the rock hard fairway. It will be an interesting tournament.

I believe all of the usual biggies will do well.  I even think Tiger has as much of a chance as anyone else, and the members here will tell you that I am not really a Tiger fan.  He has a pretty good imagination and this course requires a lot of imagination.

 

I like Rickie, but if anyone can put together 4 good rounds on this course, it's Sergio...  or he will crash and burn.  Would love to see one of the local guys do well, of course.

 

I am glad to see a U.S. Open on a public course AND in the Pacific Northwest.  I just wonder how much of a story it will be on getting people to the event.  Logistics are awful!

I found this article today......did not know that an Alternate Candidate could not play the course.....I think that is a stupid rule.

 

 

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – USGA chief Mike Davis made headlines a few weeks ago when he said that U.S. Open success would come only to those who became extremely familiar with Chambers Bay. Those showing up and only playing a couple practice rounds will not fare well.

Clint Rice was out for a casual practice round Tuesday with fellow Aussie Geoff Ogilvy, trying to gather course knowledge until his clubs were confiscated by a USGA official on the 13th hole, according to a report from the Australian AP.

Rice, No. 1188 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is an alternate after attempting to qualify last week in Ohio. Alternates are not allowed to play a practice round although they are allowed to use all tournament practice facilities.

A USGA official told the Australian AP that Rice had been given information that told him he was not allowed to play Chambers Bay.

“It's a big silly if you're not holding anybody up or interfering with their practice,” Ogilvy told the Australian AP. “I'd get it if there were no spots available for players in the field. But this wasn't the case here.

“It's a shame because we were having a good time and he seemed like a really good bloke.”

Rice did not give a comment to the Australian AP.

I don't see why Mike Davis is getting so much crap this week over how they have rotating par on holes. I think it adds just that extra little thought that the players have to think about. I just don't think the best players in the world will have to worry about hat too much.

It's here! Can you hear the griping already? You know with those bikini waxed greens and rock hard fairways the moaning and groaning should reach a fever pitch! Who's going to surive? my off the wall pick is Brooks Koepka!

I love the US Open.  Always a challenging course to play from tall rough to hard fairways to undulation greens.  This is going to be a tough one for these guys.  I'm guessing the winner is going to be around par or over.  I can't wait to watch.

So pumped for the U.S. Open. I just hope I can watch it as much as I'd like to!

 

Work schedule makes it pretty damn tough, so having a thread to follow with coverage is awesome! MGS is really taking things to the next level!

 

I, for one am heavily pulling for Tiger. I don't expect him to win, but I'd love to see him in contention. Arguably the best golfer to ever play, it's so sad to see his game go where it is.

 

Lovers and Haters of the man, everyone has to agree with him playing at his best, golf is a much better game!

 

But all of the other storylines that are out there are awesome to watch as well! Myself, I would love to see Ricky win it. Watching that finish at the players was just... Wow. One of the best (maybe the best?) tournaments I've watched.

I can't wait to see how these guys handle this course. Is it going to be as gnarly as reports and make these guys look average or will they still be able to take it down?

Woke up excited to watch the us open and fox doesn't start broadcasting until 9am my time... though players started going out a lot earlier. Watching online as we speak.

Looking forward to seeing who is on top at the end of the first day. But I'm pulling for Phil!! 6 runner up finishes is tough.

They're using shot tracker tech an awful lot in live from and online coverage right now. More than I remember NBC doing... It'll be interesting to watch how Fox continues to change coverage around moving forward. 

 

Also Natalie Gulbis is a commentator? Hmmm...
