I'd like at my take of the event from a spectators point of view. I'm between a 9-12 index depending.... and play about 100 rounds a year. I've been in person to about 15 PGA events. I have never b

Spent yesterday at Chambers Bay. What a fantastic course, just stunning to behold and looks like so much fun to play. I will have to play it in a season or two when I'm ready. I have to say that there

Well, it's been ages since I posted here, former writer at TST. I spent the Tuesday practice round and Thursday at Chambers Bay. It is expansive. Beautiful views of the sound and a golf course that lo

Pretty much.  Sat down and starting crying after the tee shot.  I don't think it was because of the result.  I just think he's a bit overwhelmed.  As he should be.  He's 15.

Almost birdied his first hole!

It is a bit strange to see so many sprinkler heads that close to the pin. I think it's just because you can't tell the difference between off the green and on the green.

Yeah, Tiger was talking about how easy it is to hit a sprinkler head.

Scoring pretty good so far. I kind of thought this....USGA watered the heck out of these greens and they seem pretty receptive early on. That coupled with the wide fairways are resulting in some early birdies. They have the power to make it tougher and bring the scores back down, though. Like I predicted early this morning, I think you'll see some scores get to 5 or 6-under these first couple days before they start going the other way.

Kevin Na in the deep stuff off the 12th tee - his setup and preshot routine look normal (disclaimer, he did play right after yippy dippy Keegan Bradley)

This is an unfamiliar set up as well as a new course for the USGA, so I suspect they decided to be cautious on Thursday.  With the forecast, they can toughen the layout up if they want, but I think they were worried more about going too far the other way.

Exactly. The weather being overcast is really good, too, for the late guys. It will keep the greens from burning out and should keep the scores pretty good all day, assuming the sun doesn't come out.

The guys on the internet feed for the featured group are decent.

Mark Brooks keeps calling the other guy out making him sound like a real idiot.

16 golfers are under par at this early stage; 9 of them are among the top 20 in the world rankings.

Fox must surely hope the leaderboard stays that way.

David Duval said last night he thinks the winner and the leaderboard will be stacked with the top players. He said this course really requires a lot of skill and strategy and you will see that from the best players and players who have the experience. I disagreed just because a lot of the top players weren't coming in top form, but I hope I'm wrong and Duval's right.

Just loving the fact it's a links course for a US Open!

On a side note, anyone else having problems with the "Featured Group" Live Feed on the USGA website? Plays for a minute then goes down..

Stream is rock solid here across the pond. There's a lot of really awkward high-fiving in all the USGA promos though.

Curt Menefee is no Bob Costas: no gravitas as an anchor, and he's seriously rushing through the copy. NOTE: Not because he's black! Mike Tirico's done very well in this role at ESPN for many years. I actually think a non-screaming Gus Johnson would have been a better fit in that chair.
