The US Open sucks. Easily the worst of the 4 majors. I’d take a birdie fest over this shit show 100 times out of 100.
I think of it like this – Imagine if the NFL allowed 13 defenders on the field for one game a year. It would be such garbage watching offenses be able to do absolutely nothing outside of some fluky plays (golf comparison – a luckbox holeout). That’s what the USGA does for one tournament a year. Such a boring slog.
I guess if you’re a masochist it’s pretty exciting.
What it desperately lacks are the risk/reward holes where you can gamble to make birdie or eagle but also make double if you miss the right spot. There just aren’t enough holes that can reward aggressive lines which indeed makes it seem a bit dull and repetitive.
Don’t even know what to root for as a cutline. Seems likely to be either +3 or +4, but with the course playing much harder today I wouldn’t be surprised if it got to +5 or +6 either.
Really the only guy I’m currently sweating is Higgo, but I have a few afternoon guys that are in that +3/+4 range already too.
Cut doesn’t seem to be dropping too quickly today but I could be wrong. I don’t see it going past +4
I agree, +5 is highly remote and +4 will be a long, slow road that might not even arrive if the wind just lays down and does absolutely nothing like last evening.
Looks like CHAN wasn’t mispriced at all.. fn guy, crippled so many lines. And my other 5 guys are doing well, have two top 500s right now with this fn bum. Shoulda went D. Wu instead. I would be leading. Sick to stomach.
You can’t be that upset. He was priced $6,100 for a reason.
I’ll echo this but heard somebody say earlier they are sick of Torrey (for a Major at least) and so am I. I haven’t watched enough this week to know if it’s just “difficult” or unfair. I think it’s just “difficult” looking at the leaderboard. Not enough of taking what’s given to them.
But I will admit to the USGA being dicks quite often with course setups.
Visually it’s not a very attractive layout despite it’s reputation. And this California “crowd” seems to be more interested in transcendental meditation than golf. I miss the rowdy rednecks down South or the obnoxious blue collar city boys of the North.

This would make a good song though I think the Beach Boys would not be the right group to do it.

Yeah not all crowds are created equal. I really kind of hate this leaderboard but at least it’s only Friday.
Have a long day of “anti-sweating” Webb since I already have him as out and he’s in far too many of my lines. Bring on the Open!!!
really? thought he was at +3, got two birds, and then imploded again. DK had him at +1 when I posted
DK must have been wrong then. He had 3 straight bogies then made one birdie then gave it back 2 holes later.
He needs to make something happen here because you know there is at least another 2 bogies out there coming in on this course.
