Golf is hard. If for one week a year we have to watch guys think their way around a course I am all for it...especially when it comes with $2 million and exemptions up the ying yang. Spare me.

Exactly - translated Fox is doing fine - I love their graphics - they have lots of former players on their broadcast team a couple who won majors, one who's an acclaimed course architect. What else do you want?

 

Oh a classic course, great field, for once a course where marginal shots are not rewarded, names on the leaderboard. The course held up great late when the wind laid down. That tells me 2 or 3 under will win. Just right for a US Open

 

Thank you

Agree with most of what you said except Joe Buck is not one of my favorites. He's better at golf announcing than he is at baseball.

It is easier to hit fairways when playing less than driver off the tee boxes. I wonder how many times Jimmy Walker swung driver today.

I think I saw that the avg PGA tour event has players hit around 61% of fairways and today They hit 70%.

I also think they hit 67% of the greens in reg events. Today with 70% of fairways hit, they hit 48% of greens. That'll hurt ya. Haha :D

I didn't get to watch any of the Open today but the fact that I think 4 guys ended under par means the course is playing somewhat fairly. If everyone was 8 over I could understand complaining but some of these guys beat the course. Am I wrong thinking this or do people want half the field shooting lights out?

Watching that massacre today, and how the conditions whooped so much arse, gave me an odd sense of pleasure - as I often marvel at the perfect conditions the tour players are greeted by week after week - and suddenly I don't feel so bad about the rounds way out here where the winds blow so hard so often and make me feel like I don't even know how to play this game. :ph34r:

Exactly -

 

If you controlled your ball and your emotions you hung in there today - if not - well that's what should happen in a major.

 

23 rounds over 80 but still quite fair, yet still some guys complaining,

 

That's the US Open I know and love.

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.

Maybe I'm being a little cruel.But would love to see the leader over par in this event.Anytime I see under par in an open I think they made it too easy.

He is beating Rory by 2 and is only 1 back of Lefty.

 

We have a dual between Tiger and Phil at the US Open :lol:

True, but they aren't playing well either, if any of them can get a couple under tomorrow, they get right back into it I think.

I think the wind was a huge factor today. Hitting downwind tonsome of these greens had to be difficult. They were saying early today that the difficult part would be the second shots, I think they were right. By the end of tomorrow I think the leader will be even par, maybe +1, if the wind is up, it will be higher than that. The greens will get crazy fast the next couple days unless it rains. I like to see the struggle. Tomorrow should be an imteresting day.

I'm 100% with you on this. It's awesome to see a course man handle the best golfers out there. It makes things interesting for sure!

I've never been a huge fan, but I think Poulter needs to get it done this week. Off to a good start!

But DJ is gonna be tough. And Duffner looks good.

Nice and sunny on the Island today and still a touch on the windy side. Should make for an interesting day two of the Open.

I will only see the morning stuff - I'm playing golf myself this afternoon. Man I'm sore from yesterday's workout - it looked so easy on paper...

In regards to scoring I'd remind that par is just a number. There are two 500 plus yards par 4's and only 2 par 5's.

 

Four guys broke 70 - I think that's the better way to look at it.

 

This is about the way it started in ‘86 and I believe 2 under won. The back nine on Sunday was an incredible back and forth affair. 16 was the pivotal hole - Floyd grabbed the lead when he birdied it. I believe Trevino and Norman were in the mix - 3 hall of famers - not bad.

 

This course produces solid winners and lots of drama just in a different way from Augusta - it's one of my favorites
