    Mcilroy and Spieth +6 and +5 after 5 holes, and so the bloodbath begins. Not able to watch at the moment due to work, but looking at the scoring so far, feels like this will be another horror show for our fave players.

    Re: US Open

    There are complaints on here all the time of pros spraying it about and making birdies from the rough.

    Once a year over there the USGA stick it to them and present a different challenge. This time its a firm windy links style course with brutal rough. Brilliant.

    Re: US Open

    I'm enjoying it here. It's good to see the players having to battle to put a score together. It's just that the featured group are not playing great golf at the moment. There are players out on the course under par and even, so its not like its not score-able.

    No matter what the USGA do there always going to be people that don't like it. Make it fairer, its too easy and not what the US open should be. Make it tougher and its to hard I don't like seeing the pro's playing poor golf.

    Rory mentioned in the press conference that he was going to play smarter off the tee, put him self in position and he just hasn't done that yet. That's why hes struggling.

    Balance - don’t want a birdie fest but also don’t want a complete mess that we are seeing , I have no doubt that good shots will get punished

    It’s gone the wrong way totally - need to find the middle ground and balance

    I'm all for that, but they've gone from one extreme to the other.
    Tiger's out later when it's supposed to be even harder.
    I hope his twist face is working....

    Spieth will probably come back to finish top ten on the final day. He always does. Rory, not so much.

    I'm expecting Tiger & DJ to mostly hit driving irons off the tee to keep it in play - make it a 2nd shot course
