Default any golf fans out there?

What have you been thinking about the Us Open at Erin Hills?
i got to plat there last year, so I am rather biased.

Love the course, and today is going to be great. So many golfers within a few strokes of the leader.

oooh wind is up today.
Looks like the course finally grew some teeth.
gonna be an interesting finish.
I'm fairly confident there aren't going to be any 63's today.

Wind probably means lots of changes to the leader board.

Whether you are a fan of golf or aerial disasters, this Open has something for you. Hope that pilot has a full recovery.

Speaking of disasters. The wind will also punish those who are not great ball strikers. Wide as those fairways are, I can't imagine trying to hit one out of the fescue.

Now that the big three are out of it (McIlroy Day and Johnson) it should be a shoot out. Pulling for Ricky.

I agree a great finish although I honestly thought there might be more shuffling down the stretch.

Erin Hills is one of my favorite courses.
The good news is it's a 1,000 miles from home or I would be
  • broke
  • a member
  • 160 lbs from walking the 10 miles of the course frequently
  • dead from a heart attack walking the 10 miles of the course.
the combo of 14 and 15 set up on the hill are great holes.
miss that green and you tumble down the hill.
in fact there are a lot of holes with clever little false fronts and nasty back edges the run far far away.

I have a hard time conceiving what they do differently than I do in order to hit a 676 yard par five in two.
If I had a pure on the screws drive followed by a pure 3 wood, I still had a 7 iron in my hands and I was teeing off 40 yards in front of them.
and I still didn't hit the damn green.
musta been the lack of tail wind, yeah that's it, I didn't have a tailwind.



I think the purists will still carry on about not being a true US Open course.
but it was a heck of a course.

I don't think the tee to green yardages are always accurate, especially on the par fives. Plus that was playing downhill, and the 3 woods they hit are more like driver with the loft etc.

Have you ever hit a professional's iron? I normally hit a 7iron ~155-165 or so, and earlier this year there was a clinic that a world famous pro put on at Bella Collina, and his lofts where so much stronger than what we use. I'd bet his 7 was more like my 5iron.
