    Re: US Open

    I doubt I would get less than 130 on that set up. With my legendary accuracy and deft touch around the greens.......

    Brutal test of golf but I enjoy watching the pro's take a hiding every now and again
    spray it about a bit and can't putt 🇿🇦

    The wind is a lot stronger than expected , the fairways are hard and the rough is harder than you have ever seen , then when you add in greens that are harder and quicker than you have witnessed , plus some of the holes are significantly longer than you expect on a normal course and the horrors can be seen. It’s not a case of “can’t play in the wind”

    Have you played links golf? Even a straight shot down the middle can take a turn for the worse with no wind let alone this

    I expected much more if I'm honest and seeing the type of golf that's been on display the past few weeks/months the only real difference I can see is the wind

    How many US open courses have you played set up like Shinecock recently ?? Another question, how many greens have you putted on that play around 13+ on the stimp.....in the wind ??

    I've seen no tv footage at all from this year but I do remember 1995 with Pavin.

    Offt that is think it doesn't look that bad either on the tv, in fact I mind Mickelson wanting a ruling about not seeing his ball in the rough

    Excellent start from Rose and hopefully Poutler can finish things off, not disappointed to see Hatton struggle.

    And your point is ?
    Barely halfway through the 1 st day and you are on a. mission, you are right ,the USGA are wrong.
    Be patient, who knows the wind may fade ,it may rain !
    I am not the only one on here whose opinion differs to yours ,it is a forum it is what we do.
    Dress it up however you like but in my opinion the featured group played some poor golf and as said earlier it makes a change to see a tough exam paper .
    IMO off course.
