I really hope that either the fairways are tighter than it looks on the videos or that the camera angle distorts the width... I would love for us not to see a repeat of last year's where (although I get that Koepka played brilliantly), it just felt like a case of just playing sensible golf. Completely understand that the US Open rewards patience, but it should force you into a few errors as well by just playing phenomenally tough - those videos make it look like a very nice course, but one the pros will eat up.

That said, can't wait - always love the first three majors of the year and this has me excited.

This is kind of neat...each of the top 9 finishers had a final score (over par) that was equivalent to their finishing position:    

I missed Sectionals by 2 strokes this year.  I summarized my round here, if you or anyone is interested. June 4th is the day for Sectional Qualifying this year.  I'm not sure how many of the 500

Watching the Women's USO, have to admit, the theme song that Fox uses for Men's and Women's events is growing on me.

Holed in from 250 during qualifier practice round. You might need to fullscreen to see the ball.

 

Awesome! So cool you caught that live!

Forecast a little far out but looks like it’s gonna be pretty dry the next 10 Days there. Temps in the 60s, sunny, no humidity. Recipe is there for fast fairways and greens. We’ll see if the USGA lets it get fast or they water the course down.

Here's a list of who made it through sectionals.

 

 

There were a lot of recognizable pros that qualified in Columbus and Memphis. I'm curious as to whether they chose the course because they like the course, or if there was another reason.  Are the number of qualification spots determined by the number of entrants at that site, or are they predetermined?

The Columbus one is always popular because some guys that played in The Memorial just stay there and play the qualifying the next day.

Was surprised not to see Goosen get special exemption. Two-time former champ who mastered that course last time it was there. He failed to qualify so he is out.

Tee times are out. I thought I might try watch a bit of Justin Thomas or DJ. They are playing together. With Tiger. I guess I'm not going to see much of them. But I may try.

Finau, List and Watson, that's gonna be fun. Bring your binoculars and earplugs.

Ten bucks someone calls Garcia, Rahm and Bello, "The Spanish Armada".

Fleetwood, Noren, Molinari - the exceptional Euros.

ZJ, Schwartzel, Reed - The Masters group.

    • I'm not sure this is correct. I would recommend reviewing Rule 16.1b. Your relief area has to be in the general area.
    • I hope these are a little better, I will have to the face on angle on the course sometime the bays around me are far to small and the camera would be so close, Even on these one's the down line angle was the farthest away I could possible have.  Comparing my game from now to my original post I'd say my ball striking has been a lot better in terms of consistency. I'm never too far offline and I'm pretty short in terms of distance. Driver I'm probably averaging around 210ish but can squeeze it out 240ish if I get everything right.         
    • The issue is when this happens in a formal competition. Hard to protect the field by calling it for a single brief phrase.  I did call advice in a tournament a few weeks ago when one player helped the other make a 10 foot putt on the first hole. Afterwards the advice-giver checked with the committee and added two strokes to his score. The player who accepted the advice and made the putt did not.  
    • They know it's embedded because they saw it land and then cannot find it and the ground is soft. See USGA Embedded Ball FAQ.  Yes, if the ball is "known or virtually certain" lost in an abnormal course condition such as temporary water, then there is free relief referencing the point that the ball entered the abnormal course condition. However, soft ground is not temporary water. Water has to be visible.   Yes, they say, "leave it there, it might help". Maybe this one is not as difficult to call as other examples though. 
    • Thanks for the welcome. I'm figuring out the kid stuff. My kids are 6th grade and 3rd grade. I bought them a set of top flight clubs to share for now, but my 6th grader is really on the high end of height for the clubs, and I'm going to need a 2nd set. So my youngest one is all set for now, I just need to do some figuring on the oldest one.    As far as actually playing with them, I've got to get that figured out as well, and I'm interested to hear about others' experiences. We have a par 3 course nearby, and that's a good start.  Thus far, I've let them hit a shot off the tee, and then I ask them to take their ball up to the green. I've only had them out twice so far, and they had a blast, so it is something they seem to want to continue doing. Thanks Denny. This seems like a cool place. Yeah, I agree that club technology, especially for irons, hasn't changed that much in recent times. My biggest objection to my clubs is that as the offset gets bigger as I get to the 3 iron, it takes what is usually a mild draw and turns it into a much more pronounced draw bordering on a hook with the longest irons.
