The women's course rating for this setup is 80.8 and the slope is 147. I checked some of the indexes of the amateurs in the field, they are about +4.4 which would give them a course handicap of +3 for this setup. So if they shoot 78 they played to their handicap.

The course will win, I think that is a certainty. But I like the fact that it's going to play so tough because it will offer up an opportunity to substantiate/squelch some of the talk about the relative skill level between the tours that goes on on this forum.

I predict somewhere between 5-8 over par wins.

To me, this is how a major SHOULD be laid out. As in TOUGH.

I will have to say though that 1 or 2 over par will probably be the winning score. I don't think there is anything wrong w/ that looking at the course rating for the ladies.

These girls are good but the course might just be a bit better.

Did you guys see the amateur Shean's (sp?) lie on her last hole? I think it was her last hole. It was ridiculous. It was across the hazard line and ended up in someone's divot that was not fixed. It was one of the worst lies I have ever seen. I never got a chance to see her hit her shot. If anyone saw it, post up what she hit and how it went. I am curious to know the result of that one. Very unlucky. I would have been pissed at the person that didn't fix it!!

I'm not sure it was even a divot, it looked like a gash in the ground that was perpendicular to the fairway. The ball was literally below the level of the ground.

More hysterical was the fact that her boyfriend is carrying her bag. Better yet, he doesn't even play golf, knows nothing about the sport. I loved the shots of him just looking around smiling!

Yeah. It was bad. She took a nine or an eight iron and basically hit it through the grass in front of her ball.

She ended up hitting it about thirty yards back into the fairway. Not bad. She did end up bogeying the hole, however. Keep in mind her caddy is her boyfriend, who doesn't play golf or basically have any real knowledge of what's going on.

Yeah, I knew that part. Well, that was the play I would have chosen....that was her only choice I guess. Thanks man

Two things.

I half expected Wie to seriously wonder if greens this fast is even legal.

Another; the greens at Oakmount are Poa Ana (sp?), which of course is the same grass of the greens at Pebble.

Where is the uproar about Oakmounts greens that there was about Pebble's? Or haven't I looked hard enough?

I have zero doubt in my mind that the winner will be over par.

Please, I beg of whoever is telecasting this tournament: DO NOT LET JOHNNY MILLER ON THE AIR! He will never stop talking about his 63. NEVER.

You would have to find someone who cares. Maybe the men are just whinier than the women.

Sorry, but whats wrong with the greens? They are fast, but they are also pretty big compared to Pebble and they didnt seem bumpy yesterday evening in the telecast. And really, complaining about stuff like that, trying to excuse your bad play (you will never see somebody with a good round complaining about stuff like that), just makes you more enemies than friends - thats the last thing the LPGA needs.

Maybe there is even something like a "dont bitch about the course" policy set by the LPGA media guys, otherwise Michelle Wie would have been all over this one to excuse her crappy play.

Do you count even par or 1-under at the US Open a good round? If so, then Dustin Johnson did it, so never say "never."

    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag.
