The rough looks NASTY...I hope the winning score is +3 or +5....and we get to see all the pros and Am's suffering and crying like babies.

Could we see a few 3 minute limit penalties for a lost ball in the rough?

I can confidently say as an 8 cap....100+ for me...heck 110+ wouldn't be far off neither.😰

Tiger, Morikawa, and JT are paired together the first 2 rounds.

JT was 1st and Morikawa was 2nd in strokes gained approach for 2019-2020 and Tiger is widely considered the best iron player ever, looking forward to watching all 3 of them together

They get the north wind on the weekend, which is the cold wind. As someone who’s played winged foot once in that cold wind, it’s not fun. 

What did you shoot?

Ugh, and I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday and will be out all day! 🙁

Upper 90s...and I'm a scratch golfer. Brutal course. Greens are the toughest part. I had more three and four-putts that day than I've had in my last 10 rounds combined. Shinnecock is next on my list of New York courses to play, but Winged Foot is up there with Bethpage as one of the best NE courses I've played. Still, have to rank Sand Hills in Nebraska as my favorite. Excited to play Chambers Bay next month for the first time.

Thank god for a cold front. Without it, Sally would head right up to the NE and knock out play for prolly two days. The front will block it from making a visit.

Hey Chris, what's the weather going to be like in Bellingham for the next 2 days?  Can I play golf?

I wonder what are the odds? DJ is probably the favorite. With Collin Morikawa, JT, Rahm,and McIroy have similar odds.

If only there was a way to look them up… 😉

LOL - I can only imagine the monstrous number I'd put up. :-$

You'd be surprised how well you might score when playing an extremely challenging course. I played Bethpage Black when I was shooting low 90's and shot a 104 while playing what felt like the best round of golf I had ever played. It was my happiest over 100 ever.

I think I will subscribe to Peacock for a month. 

I signed up to Peacock without giving them my CC# and was able to watch some tv shows (with ads) and according to what I'm reading, US Open is free.

So my account is not premium, didn't give a lick of money to Peacock and this is what I see. There is no premium label on the streams. For example, there is for the Tour de France, so I assume the golf is free.

I actually played Winged Foot well off the tee. But the greens there are the toughest I’ve ever played in my life. I don’t lie when I say I had a couple four-putts and I’m not a three-putt player. It is brutally tough.

I heard they cut the rough today and when asked why the superintendent said because they were afraid the winning score could be extremely high   If they didn’t. Apparently the course is really dry and firm and it’s supposed to get drier. There’s worry the greens could get out of control this week. I loved Rory’s quite. They asked him if under par could win and he laughed and said “Not a chance.”

I love Rory. :-$

He'll be my number two this week behind Phil, of course.

I had a similar experience when I played the Plantation course at Kapalua. It was the first course that hosts tour events I'd ever played. I actually struck the ball super well that day. But bounced a few 30-80 yard shots through the green after landing them near my target and rolled two long putts fully off the green. Learned my less on the back hitting the ball like I wanted it to go 1 foot and watching it trickle ~70ft! Shot a 92 that day that I was super proud of!
