US Open Golf



  • I've read a few articles on the US open this weekend, and how ridiculously hard it is going to be. Tiger reckons Winged Foot is in the top 3 hardest courses in the World. By all accounts the rough is ridiculous, and everything is narrow.

    I've just seen videos of the greens and they are fucked. Fast, slopped, all over the fucking shop. I've just watched one where the guy putted 20 foot one way past the hole, and it ended up as far the other side of the hole after it rolled back (having stopped).

    I reckon i would battle to break 200. If you make par apparently you'll win.

    Should be hilarious viewing

    That play into tigers 3 wood and balanced play. Likely a 60/1 shot though.

    Go Ryan Fox!!





  • I think so too. Only once in the US Opens played at this venue has the winner been under par. Just look at how lush that rough is and it will stay lush too throughout the 4 days with no crowds to trample it.

    Course looks amazing.



  • @JK love to have a crack at a course like this!

    I recall when I played in a big tournament at St Andrews in Hamilton, which isnt overly tight, but they had set it up narrow with long thick rough, slick greens, I had some big holes that day!



  • Been an interesting watch so far with a couple of aces and now having a laugh at Phil hitting some classic big lefty fades!

    JT leading at -5 with Patrick Reed -4 and Rory at-3 all in the club house

    Ryan Fox all done at +4 and Danny started OK and back to even after 5 after dropping a shot on his first hole



  • Danny ends even after a standard danny lee bogey birdie sorta day.

    Mickelson +9 and at the ass end of the field



  • Haha kokrak is a funny name
