    Re: US Open

    I'm enjoying it too
    Always do ( US Open ) great spectacle
    The pros should be made to work this hard more often
    Before it all started, all pros I seen interviewed, none had complaints, all seemed to be of the opinion that the fairways were wide enough, and fair
    Just don't miss them.......

    The wind is obviously playing a part too
    There's just some awfully bad swings, shot choices, being made by these so called superstars in the featured group

    I hope his twist face is working....
    48 players currently within 5 shots of the lead. I'd say that's fair tbh. The featured group just hasn't adjusted their games to the conditions. They are meant to be some of the best players in the world, they should be able to adjust mid round.

    Re: US Open

    I said in the other thread will say here too, would like to make it only the player and his caddie can search for a ball. If a steward spots it land he can flag but don’t think a dozen should be searching a wide area.

    How is that any comparison to the rest of golf

    Would you like the cameras turned off as well which has helped players find their balls ?

    I must say I was disappointed with the earlier coverage just followed Rory's group and the commentary was boring to when it worked, glad the second half of coverage has commentators who are decent might see more groups too

    Have you never had a playing partner or someone else on a course find a ball for you?
    Did you thank them or moan?
    The game suffers enough with slow play without slowing it down further.

    Golf in the US is slow enough as it is. Make that change and on courses like this you could be looking at 6hr rounds.

    That was the point of the coverage though, featured group coverage. Purely follow one group, see every shot.
