It’s U.S. Open time again. Time to watch the best players in the world trudge around the golf course laboriously trying to make par. This year’s venue promises to be as punitive as any. Merion awaits the best in the world, so it can abuse them for our amusement. What’s not to love about that?
In this newest edition of HtL we begin with a peek at the group to watch, then check out a golf rap video, and find out why some people think it’s okay to be selective about which golf rules we follow. Also, we find out what an average amateur would shoot at Merion, look into why Butch Harmon gave up Twitter, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
