This is nothing short of a rodeo.

I understand the US Open needs to be on a tough course and the winner should not be -18.

But why the USGA feels the need to do this to the course and the players is beyond me.

On TV the greens look just awful. Like a bad municipal course somewhere.

I would've wrapped my putter around the neck of the nearest fucktard wearing a USGA badge.

I’ve not watched the open much in n recent years for these very reasons of the USGA.  They really want to prove that the best golfers can’t beat their track.  It’s like a fucking crazy ass putt putt course.  Where’s the windmill and clown mouth and fire ring to hit through? 

Perfect shots should not be penalized with imperfect results.  They can toughen the courses with length, narrowness, tough rough, smaller greens.  But this shit is ridiculous.

It makes for bad tv.  Fox should dictate some of this

The course got nearly unplayable this afternoon. The usga brass admitted it and recognized that they miscalculated the wind and water requirements and will make corrections for tomorrow. Their goal is for the campion to win with par. I think our winner will be three or four over. That's not missing their goal by much. Nobody would think it was an easy tract if the winner was that far on the other side of par. 13 and 15 had shitty pin placements and they admitted as much. I think they will get it right tomorrow and it should be an exciting Sunday. Lots of capable guys with a shot, which is a lot more fun than a run away, or two guys doing match play on the back nine.

Bunch of U.S. Opens have seen well over par win though, Winged Foot in '06, Oakmont in '07 were both +5. Winged Foot was +7 in '74. Both Olympic and Merion in '12 and '13 were +1.

I don't like watching golf like that. Not saying we need a shootout to see who can get to -18 or -20 but I don't want +3 or +4 winning tomorrow.

My sense is the winner will need to shoot under par for the round. E or +1 would be my guess for the winning score.   They'll go way back the other way with the setup tomorrow.

Agree. I think Koepka has a real good chance of being first repeat winner since Curtis Strange. A 68 or 69 would probably do it.

Wonder how the USGA will fuck up Pebble Beach next year.  I expect a tsunami and a giant squid eating players.

If anything they’ll go the other direction and the winner will be -10.

Today is going to be different, just thanks to Mother Nature.  High wind forecast is 7 mph.

And the course is gettable.  Phil and Rickie are both -3 through 8, and throwing darts.

Yeah I may have to amend my guess.  It may take -2 or -3 to win.

Nope. The gods kicked it away.

But still. 8 threes and 2 twos in a US Open round is incredible.

The benefit of grandstands.  That ball would’ve been in major hay otherwise.

But he deserved the win.  Great round.
