USGA pledges no repeat of rules gaffe from last US Open

15 Juin 2017

Nice to see some professional golfers are acting like crybabies ahead of the U.S. Open once again.

He is looked upon as a big game player winning the Olympic title last year and since becoming the first English victor of the US Open for 43 years. No one was happier than Rory McIlroy.

"It's been very fun the last couple of days, obviously having a new son on Monday was awesome", Johnson said. And if you haven't played here before it definitely helps if someone knows the course. "I don't think it's a secret that I feel like my driver is one of the biggest weapons in my bag", McIlroy said on Tuesday.

Here are three golfers we like to contend for this major championship. For someone who grew up in Northern Ireland, he has the reputation of favoring benign conditions instead of firm, wind-whipped conditions. However, this course and tournament could offer a great deal of unpredictability to determine the second major champion of the year.

The bigger concern for McIlroy is his competitive form.

Not bad for a 39-year-old property manager who grew up at his father's driving range near Sedgefield. He ruptured a tendon in his ankle playing soccer and missed 2 months, including his British Open title defense at St. Andrews. However, very few players were complaining after getting their first look at beautifully manicured Erin Hills, with its record-setting length, double-wide fairways, 137 bunkers and ubiquitous fescue that in places is only a stride or two from the fairway.

Stairs were the only thing that could stop him earlier this year.

Adding to the unpredictability is the venue Erin Hills, a sprawling links style layout nestled in the bucolic Wisconsin countryside, that will be making its major debut. He says he can swing and has full power.

Microsoft has come under fire from some critics who worry the company's new Xbox One X is overpriced. Microsoft and Sony both introduced their previous generation consoles in late 2013.

On Monday, Na was particularly critical in an Instagram video, during which he demonstrated how the ball did not escape the rough despite hitting two shots.

The unknown is how sharp he will be this week. "I didn't feel like my body was restricting me in any way from doing what I wanted to do", he said. I need to do to get back to winning Majors and being in contention. "I made my mistakes, but I also had some good efforts and made some putts, so, no, there's nothing I would change". "But if there's a chance, I'll be ready". It's just a matter of being able to do it. The USGA introduced a local rule past year that if a golf ball or marker moves accidentally, the player puts it back without penalty.

"The U.S. Open, you normally play on golf courses that are tricked up just to the limits, sometimes over the limits and sometimes just underneath", Stenson said.

Keep it in the fairway. That sea of knee-high fescue bordering the fairways is just as treacherous as it looks on television. But this is a U.S. Open course. "Everyone is going to run into some sort of trouble out there - everyone is".

"These and other steps that we've implemented we think will allow us to really expedite our rule-making process and be decisive in our communications, which were two things that perhaps we fell a little bit short past year", Bodenhamer stated. He finished ninth at Augusta for The Masters this year as well.

"It feels good to still be number one". I'd much rather the course be harder than easier.

Nobody is paying closer attention to the "Phil Mickelson watch" than is Roberto Diaz. Both are renowned for their short games, as is Spieth. At the 1974 U.S. Open it proved so brutal that Hale Irwin won with a seven-over-par score inspiring a book entitled "Massacre at Winged Foot". If you put yourself there more and more and more often, eventually the door is going to open.

"You could have a side-hill lie, a lie that might be in one of those little fingers where you can't even get the club on the ball", Whitten said.
