I've got the old NBC theme going in my head, but alas, it's Fox, with its updated announcing lineup in its sophomore year. The US Open is my favorite major of the year, and it's at the venerable Oakmont CC. an added bonus, with its church pews bunkers in the great state of Pennsylvania.

Just some of my take: I was there Wednesday and yesterday, stood right next to Colin Montgomery for a little while by 9 green and he is A LOT less heavy in person than he appears on tv. It was od

My dad picked up me up at 9am this morning.  We wanted to wait until rush hour had died down.  Today, no parking pass.  So we parked at the Pittsburgh Mills mall and took the shuttle to Oakmont. I mea

Ok.  Credit where it's due.  I've gotta commend Fox on their camera work following Paulina walking with DJ to the scorer's tent...

Will be interesting to see how they set the course up. I don't think they will set it up as brutal as 2007. Of course, weather will play a factor in that. But early word is they're not gonna make the rough off the fairway not as penal as they did that year.

They say the USGA has to slow down the greens at Oakmont to make them playable in tournament conditions. If lighter rough convinces players that they aim for the green and their approaches will hold, the scores may well be higher than they were in '07.

Oakmont has quite possibly the most decorated winners' list of any course.  The eight US Opens and three PGAs contested on the course were won by Nicklaus, Hogan, Sarazen, Snead, Els, Cabrera, Armour, Miller, (Larry) Nelson, Mahaffey and Sam Parks.  All but the last two guys were multiple major winners and, obviously, some of the biggest legends ever won here.

So by that logic, I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that one of the top guys (Day, Spieth or McIlroy) wins the Open.

I'm hoping the course plays tough. I wouldn't mind 3 to 4 over par being the winning score. :-D

I would like to see that as well. US Open winner at even par is a success in my opinion.

Does anybody know if it's too late to sign up? 

 

In all seriousness . . this is my favorite of all the majors.  It's the highlight of my golf-watching year.  I'm hoping for a Jordan Spieth victory - after what happened at The Masters this year - that would really be amazing.  Failing that - I'd like to see Rory take it.  These 2 have become my favorite golfers lately.

On the strength of seven birdies, Sadlowski shot a five-under 65 and won the U.S. Open local qualifier at The Country Club at DC Ranch in Scottsdale. The native of Alberta, Canada, a two-time winner of the Re/Max Long Drive Championship, is making his first attempt to qualify for the U.S. Open, which this year is being held at Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club.

“People figure you hit it a long way you ought to be able to shoot low, but you still have to get it in the hole, and I did that pretty well," Sadlowski, 27, said by phone. “It’s nice to be able to prove that I can do more than hit the ball far.”

So far the course is dry and fast. Word is the course is set up for an over par winner. The next 10 days look dry for the most part there as well. May be some rain once the tourney starts, but that's still a bit far out to forecast. But the USGA has to like what it sees from a "tough" standpoint. The drier it is, the more the USGA can dictate the scoring.

    • Day 409: Lesson / iron fitting today. I've managed to tame the hook issue and I'm not shoving my right hand over anymore to close the clubface and catch up with my hips/core. Ball flight is on target and my miss is a push that doesn't draw. Still hit an occasional nasty hook, but those are becoming much less frequent. I'm still stuck on AoA of 0.5-2 degrees down, when it was previously more in the range of 2-4 degrees down. My sternum is just hanging slightly back, so working on this is the priority piece for this month. 
    • The timing of this post was perfect for me. I watched the video yesterday, and did an iron fitting with my instructor today. Thanks for the content! Points 1-3 were pretty well established through conversations with my instructor during lessons leading up to the fitting, as well as email exchanges. I thought I had narrowed down my choices pretty well, but when I arrived and saw all the heads I requested lined up, I realized there was no way I would have time to sufficiently test all of them. We had another good talk and narrowed it down to four (down from maybe ten). Point 4, I was certainly prepared not to buy anything if the data suggested no improvement, but it was pretty apparent that the shaft/head combos I was testing were noticeably better than my current set. Point 5, we accomplished this by rotating through the head/shaft combos multiple times, and then throwing out data that were clearly poor swings, and doing multiple passes with different shafts, and switching back to a previous shaft, and basically randomizing the combinations a bit. In the end, we eliminated quite a few shots to get what felt like a representative data set. The thing that I wasn't prepared for was the physical aspect of the fitting (working from home has taken a toll on my physical fitness). It's been awhile since I've just hit ball after ball after ball like that. When I practice, I might hit 15-20 balls over a period of 45 minutes, with lots of conscious thought and feel rehearsals between each ball. In the end all of the options that I tested performed similarly better than my current set, so I went with the set that I preferred the look and feel/sound of the best.
    • Will the music be like when they play AC/DC between plays in College Football? Maybe have a marching band between the front & back nine? And we watch the Masters to see the beer commercials?
    • I think they meant to say perceived missteps. Or maybe perceived missteps really awful golf coverage. It would definitely be nice to see more tee to green play and less putting I was watching some older (10+ years ago) coverage of The Masters on CBS and it seemed like over half the shots shown were putts. The feed would cut to a player on the green and one of the announcers would say "here is so and so with a par putt"...thanks, but how did they arrive at this particular par putt? I rarely watch live golf coverage anymore because the TV product mostly sucks, unless it's a major tournament. I just record, and replay at my convenience while skipping all the commercials.
    • If you want to improve golf coverage or any sport for that matter, put ball gags on the commentators so we don’t have to listen to their idiotic “captain obvious” commentary. We can begin with Chris Collinsworth.
