This course plays pretty easy when there's a marine layer and no wind. In '92, they were tearing Pebble up until Sunday and the sun/wind came around. In '00, they scored lowest in round 1 when it was foggy. The next 3 rounds, only Tiger went low. In 2010, it was basically sunny every day so it played tough. 

Want Pebble to play tough? Ask for sunshine.

Seems like a sunny day would make it especially tough for the late groups, because the poa will sprout more.

True. I remember being there in 2010 and the weather was gorgeous every day but Friday. Guys were having problems with the poa and the greens. Greens look much better this year. Wish I were there this year.

Very early yet but great leaderboard thus far. Nothing but big names under par and on the first page with the exception of perhaps Piercy.

So I noticed the US Open starts at 2:09 pm today.. Anyone else excited?!

5:09pm eastern time, man. 😄

Ha. At least he's in the afternoon shift. Sometimes I think in the morning slot Tiger comes out too conservative and then shoots E or something, and the lead after day 1 is -7 or -6 or something.

Maybe if he goes off in the afternoon he'll see that the course is somewhat "gettable" (if the scoring continues), and put up a better number.

But whatever. Everything the rest of this year is gravy for TW, IMO. He got a major win already, proved he is fully back, etc. I'm not saying an MC won't cause concerns, but a T20 is fine, too.

Is Fowler sporting a mullet under that Puma hat? Would he be the first US Open winner with a mullet? :-P

I believe Dufner has one as well. I don't know if it's a charity thing or a new style I don't know about haha.

I think Pavin was rocking one in 95. 😎

When I was there in 2010 during the first round, I don't think anyone ever even got to -3. I kept looking at the leaderboard and guys were -1 and -2 most of the day. I think Micheel and de Jonge were leading at like -1 or -2 after the first round. Funny thing it wasn't even that breezy. Just sunny and chilly.

That was ugly. You can't take anything for granted at an Open.

What Kevin’s Kisner did at 18 was uglier.

If you could break a piece of gum, Phil would have done it. Steam coming out of his ears.

I didn't see it. I am watching the Featured Groups streaming online.

He 4-putted from about 4-feet.

    • 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben. 
    • Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
    • As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102  
    • Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
    • vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
