AAAaaaand someone posted a gif of the you know what crash on Twitter already.

Guessing there wasn't enough time for chute to fully deploy and slow down his fall? I know nothing about parachutes. But it looked pretty low from where he jumped off.

And I know nothing of blimps, but it looked decrepit and old.

That was a very tidy opening 65 for Rickie, 11 4s and 7 3s not one 5 on the card. It will be tough to duplicate tomorrow, but he's striping it.

Yeah.  Watched most of it.  His ball striking was solid around the course and got a bunch of 10-15ft birdie putts to drop.  Perfect way to start the tournament for him.

Something about the US Open going to newer courses seems to bring out disasters near the course.
Anyone remember all the coverage of the marina fire during the 3rd round at Chambers Bay?

I'm surprised at the use of the back tee on the 6th. The hole is the hardest on the course at 252 yards. Yeah Rickie hits a long iron to the fringe. The listed yardage on 6 is only 208 yards. So I guess they are using the back tee today.

They're showing more radar numbers than CBS did, don't recall seeing launch angle and spin rate before. Those graphics look retro though. Like 20 years ago retro. Well, I guess if your demographic is old - like me.

Adam Scott just missed a putt of about a foot.  The announcer said it might be the shortest putt he's seen a professional miss.

But it wasn't the shortest putt a professional has missed in a major.  Hale Irwin missed a tap-in in the 1983 British Open.  He missed a playoff by one stroke.

Scott actually missed a putt of about that length at the 2008 US open in Torrey Pines in round 2. He's prone to those. It's unfortunate.

    • Played an outing Sunday. Hadn’t hit a ball in 2.5 weeks. First shot I hit a 7 iron on par 3 that never left the stick. Absolutely pure strike. Hit my irons like that most of the day. Hit a stick with an 8 iron. Landed a 5 iron within 6 feet. Hell of a day ball striking irons. Struggles off tee to an extent but I had partners for that. We had mulligans and tosses.... and managed a -19 which is best outing score I’ve ever posted. We finished 2nd to a -21 tho. Those 4 pars we made cost us.
    • Have an old SC that's apparently been cut off, shaft band says 34" but measures 33"and it feels pretty good. 
    • Very good. Always nice to get a club that works.
    • Had two chip-in birdies today on difficult par-3 holes. The first one was a bit lucky. The course was absolutely drenched due to heavy rains, and the hole was cut at a low point on the green. My pitch shot would have rolled 10-15 feet past the hole under normal conditions, but the water on the green killed the speed and the ball one hopped into the hole. The second one was actually a good shot. I was on an upslope with the green above me, and hit a perfectly weighted pitch that landed on a downslope and rolled into the hole, which was cut on a well drained part of the green.
    • I’ve always been intrigued by hickory golf. There’s a guy I see sometimes playing hickories with the full getup and it it looks like tons of fun. I’d love to get a starter set, but not interested in restoration, and no clue where to even begin.
