No chance. Length isn't the issue here.

Former champions Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer all missed the cut, as did Jon Rahm, Sergio Garcia and Jason Day.

Not to fret, a bomber with an amazing wedge game is on top. Just as I expected.

Netflix has a package of "golf biography" segments, including one of Jack Nicklaus. In the video shares good memories of playing British Opens, especially how much golf knowledge their local fans have.

Sadly, the mindless yelling that's coming from the crowd at Shinnecock is disrespectful to the players, the tournament, and the game itself.

Yup. My wife and I have seriously been talking about taking a job overseas.

 

Everything here has to be bigger, louder, more betterer...

 

I'll take a flat, some links golf, and a 1980 Land Rover Defender 110.

 

Either way we are going to simplify things a bit. Get rid of the nonsense.

It was interesting that the guys I played with today commented on the crowd. I hadn't really noticed. Being from the tri-state area it seemed tame to me.

 

In 86 Norman stormed the crowd. I was close to that action.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Not being cocky. But if I wasn't injured. I'm Betting I could break 90 from the members tees there

No chance I break 100 there from any tee. Only person I saw that was stopping the ball on the greens was Sergio, and if you watched the Masters you know what kind of spin he puts on the ball. With lefty struggling to get up and down, I definitely don't stand a chance.

Do you live in the New York metropolitan area ?

Heck no. I hate cities, well large cities. I live in a very tiny village of 300 ish people in the middle of nowhere.

If I broke 100 on this setup from those tees I'd buy drinks like I made a hole in one.

I might take that and be happy. Phil was 13/14 fw yesterday and shot +7. US open isn't easy

Ha. And Chris Cooley (former Redskin. Now local sports talk jock) was going on today, that he'd break 100 from the tournament tees. And he's a 7 handicap. LMFAO.

 

He said all he had to do was play bogey golf. His co-host said. Tiger Woods had trouble playing bogey golf on like 6 holes. So yeah. I'm sure you could do it for 18.

 

There was no talking sense into him. He's a jock, be can fix anything. Ha

I obviously don't have any idea how good you are but I somewhat doubt it, even from the member's tees. The conditions are the kicker here. It's nothing like we are used to playing.

 

When it's not set up for a US Open, I'm sure you could.

I think it's doable to break 90 for a very good player. But you would have to go into it with zero hopes of breaking 80 and intentionally playing the most conservative/ boring game plan ever.

Never going for it and playing away from issues. Laying it up or playing away from certain holes/greens even on par 4s when it calls for it. You just can't take doubles unless you are in the heather.

It limits your upside so even on your best day, you can only shoot 82-83. But it also limits your downside. So, if you play decent you should be able to break 90.

 

At least, that's how I would go about it if I had a bet with someone about breaking 90. You just have to play VERY smart. And then pray that you wedge/putt it well enough to get it done.

Agree with someone of your level being able to take that approach and break 90. But he's what, 8 strokes higher than you? So that already puts him on the edge of 100 with very little room for error.

 

I remember when Tony Romo took the NBC challenge at Torey Pines I think the Friday before the open. And as a Scratch or even +1 I think he shot right around 90.

 

Back to Cooley, his Co host told him, he'd never seen Cooley even break 80 when he played at the cohosts club. Which Is a nice private in the area but only like 6600 from the back.

FWIW, No Laying Up played the course a week or two ago; before they shaved the fairways and greens. As guys who play all the time, they're all decent players and managed to turn in scores in the 80s from the members tees. I think very good average Joe's could break 90 from the members tees with the speeds turned up but high handicappers wouldn't stand a chance.

 

From the tournament tees? Fuggedabout it. Not only would the players need to be scratch, they'd need to be exceptionally long just to make it over the 250-270 yard forced carries.....so basically players that nearly qualified through the Am route anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I can do it. I probably couldn't unless I played well. Especially on the first try. But that would be the way to go about it if I had the bet!

 

Yea... Cooley can put his money where his mouth is on that one! lol

He's letting his ego get the better of him. 

 

Edit: Give me like 5 chances and I think its a sure thing  :D

I think Soly shot 78 from the tips (not the US Open tees), which are 6950 or so. But he said that the course was much softer and easier than what they were playing today. I'd venture to say that he'd shoot close to 6-10 shots worse even from the same boxes in these conditions.

A course playing nothing like you are used to really screws with you. All your instincts are off.

Soly is a 1 or 2 handicap if memory serves. I think it was lower a month+ ago but he said he was playing over his head earlier this year and his cap was inflated.
