    Re: US Open

    Imho it (the course set up) was inappropriate.

    Re: US Open

    The greens look like a very unpleasant combination of fast with lots of break. Not good with the wind blowing like it is.

    At least with this weather at the open, the greens are slower and a bit...

    Be careful not to forget that golf is not the same as golf swing. You can play good golf with a dodgy swing if you manage it well.

    In addition, for me the exercise and the company really improve...

    Private schools hoover up many of the best teachers, many intelligent and motivated children and many engaged and interested parents. I'd say they have an overall negative impact on the state system.
