This must be the one I was reading about, so difficult to keep a ball from running off.
They can't let it get out of hand again.....can they? I'm with Lefty on this. Hard is ok, carnival putting greens NOT ok.
the 18th Green at Shinnecock is unbelievably hard. I had the pleasure of playing the course several years ago and remember almost putting the ball off the green on 18 as I was on at the back of the green and the pin was towards the front. And I am sure it is much quicker so I dont know how the pros stop any putts on that green
Only thing missing is a windmill and a clowns mouth
That's the usga for you ! I hate that organization ! The US open is my least favorite tournmant of all !
It’s the US Open which is supposed to be the toughest challenge here in the US... LONG rough and FAST greens.
I’m willing to bet the winning score this week will be -2. If I’m right in the three times the US Open has been held at Shinnecock Hills (3X) the winning score was -6 over ALL competitions.
Yes, the USGA has gotten it wrong in the past but let’s give them a chance here! I for one can’t wait to see a golf course take a piece outta these guys who bomb it down par fives and wedge it in for looks at Eagle every week.
Hole it out like DJ and you don't have to worry about it.
