    US Open

    Well it looks like Shinnecock is going to provide the ridiculous

    Will be amazed if more than 5 finish better than level is any do

    It’s too penal - they once again haven’t found the balance imo - the rough doesn’t need to be that penal that is could end up with someone damaging a wrist

    Re: US Open

    Basically youre dead if youre more than a few paces off line, Rory just failed to wedge it out sideways from 10 yards or so offline into the fescue

    Feature group basically playing bogey golf, could be 15 over between the 3 of them after 5 holes!

    And this is the rain softened version of the course, its only gonna get harder as it dries out
    In the bag:
    TM M1 9.5 degree

    Orka RS1/RS3 Irons 3-PW

    This is going to be carnage.

    I should have entered, my game might be rubbish but at least I can hit fairways

    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 easier to handle.

    It's only set up like this one week of the year and personally I'm really enjoying the break from the usual target golf you get over in America.

    Big fan here too.


    Rory hit it in the junk because he hit it 120feet in the air with the driver with the wind off the left.

    It was cool to see Phil it only 22feet in the air with a driving iron on the next hole.

    I have no problem with a course being set up or playing tough, provided it's also fair. Too often though the USGA get it so wrong, with it being set up tough and them not taking into account wind etc, particularly with the greens.

    But it does make compulsive viewing at first......and then gets boring.
