Thank you No Laying Up, for posting a see it in one shot summary of how to watch the US Open this week. 11 AM to 9PM on Saturday. That's a long stretch!

I am really looking forward to this Open. The rough is super thick and penal right now, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the pros manage it. My hunch is that those who can do the best job of blending distance and accuracy off the tee will prevail. This might have the makings of another DeChambeau victory, perhaps?

Does anyone know if fans are allowed for Wednesday practice round? Were there tickets sold for this? 

I don't see any practice tickets available on Stubhub though.

Though golf is far from whatever its new normal is going to look like, the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in June is going to feel like it's being played at Cam

Dang, but I'd like to see Phil win this one, too!

I agree and want him to do also.  Phil is a long-shot but I put my $$ on him.  Understand, it was not a lot of cash and I know I could lose it all, rather quickly.

You put money that he’d make the cut? 😃

I know odds are against it.

I'm gonna root for him anyway. I'll root for Hovland, too, though I don't think he's got the chops, yet, to win.

    • C’mon man! You were the President of the Taylor Gooch fan club! You got that tatoo!😜 Agree, 54 hole snooze fest.
    • True, but even when they decide to focus on a shot, it can still take 20-30 seconds for the player to execute. The broadcast likes to include the player picking a club and setting up. If they take too long, sometimes they cut away, sometimes they don’t. I’m not saying I prefer it.  Personally, I would love to see more shots, less putting. 
    • Apart from what  OP has just repeated, the clue is in the term temporary water,  the revised name for what used to be called casual water.   As it is  a temporary condition, you could not designate an area as temporary water all the time. And to push that thought further, if it were water all the time it wouldn't be temporary but by definition a penalty area. It wouldn't be surprising if on occasion parts of this mushy area do meet the criteria to be temporary water (I get the notion that you get occasional showers in Seattle) but it could be very difficult to know or have virtual certainty that a lost ball was in such a patch. 
    • Your only hope is to react quickly enough and  stop your downswing or deliberately miss the ball.
    • Interesting. Out of curiosity, I googled the past 20 winner of the PGA's Match Play tournament. My assumption was that most of the winners were mid-range to lower level guys. But it appears that most of the winners were "top 10" types. Perhaps match play does favor higher level players.  With that said, the assertion that match player is easier as a blanket statement is pretty absurd on it's face. In any 128 player field, the odds of a given player winning are 1 - X. X being the likelihood that any of the other 127 players will win. The fact that match-play is easier for certain types of golfer makes it mathematically necessary that it is harder for other types of golfers.
