Sick of players complaining about the one week they are challenged. As Rory said it "these are the widest fairways ever in a US Open. We have 60 yards of fairway to land it and 156 of the best players in the world so if you cant do that you should just pack your bags and go home"



Kevin Na complaining isnt suprising as the 2.16 miillion to the winner is also the odds of him winning lol

    Well, if the OP won't go on, I will. I'm new here also, and I will admit that I'm a hack. I hear all the time about how the ball has changed the game, or how the drivers are so much better, ad infinitum... I hear it on the GC on tv, I hear it on Sirius, and I read it on here. Every time I hear it I'm thinking why don't they make the rough more punitive? I play munis that are more punitive from a missed shot off the fairway than what I see on tv. So what if the fescue at Erin Hills lays over if the wind blows? Don't HIT it there. If you can't hit a driver and keep it straight, hit something you can. Take the long ball out of play for the guys that don't hit straight and BOOM you've shortened the course.

    I'm a big Rors fan. But when he is coming down the stretch on Sunday with a chance, and hits one in to the hay, and they can't find the ball, he will rue his comments. The story of this golf course should not be the 3' rough. It should be the length ( a positive thing given TaylorMade drivers), and the difficulty of the greens. That will be enough to determine the championship golfer. The 3' fescue looks nice, but it should be so far away from the course so that it doesn't influence play.

    But we'll give you a pass for all of that, because you don't have anything about that team up north in your username.

    I didn't know anything about it untill I saw it on sports center about a half hour ago. Rory had me dying!

    The only thing better that he could have done would be if he asked "who's Kevin Na?!"

    That said, we will see if his tune changes if he misses the cut again.

    My guess is that if Rory loses a ball down the stretch because he misses a 50 yard wide fairway, that he'll own up to his terrible shot and accept it. Sorry, but you shouldn't get away with that poor of a shot in the US Open.

    Rory said it perfectly. In fact, Jordan Speith pretty much had the same thing to say, but he wasn't as blunt about it. As always he had a very well thought out comment about it, which sounded like he took plenty of time thinking about how to respond to the comment.

    Kevin Na should just WD. Fescue already in his head too much. Obviously expects to spend a lot of time in it.

    Rory - Look at those great big faiways!

    Na - Look at all that 3' grass!

    Na has lost the mental aspect before he even starts.

    lol Dustin Johnson wins by 7.... with the week he is having he probably doesn't even know what golf course he is on... and he is trying to figure out why his wife packed him ankle socks with stickum smeared all over the bottoms.

    Agree with Rory 100%. Granted, he and DJ are arguably the best drivers of the golf ball, but if you cant hit a 60 yard wide target, you deserve to lose the golf ball. This is the U.S. Open, the toughest test in golf. There are dozens of alternates that would welcome a Na withdraw.

    Rahm has been on tour less than one year...I would hold off the accolades for at least another year or two. Rahm is certainly a phenomenal player but he is playing on house money right now and let's see how he does when the spain train slows down a little and has been on tour a little longer. Also he's played in how many US Opens? 1? If he wins then I will eat my words gladly but his temperament is not one that will bode will with US Open golf. Koepka has been on tour for a little longer and has played in a Ryder Cup so I would throw him in the conversation but Rahms nuts still haven't dropped

    US Open golf is not what it used to be. Used to be pucker up time. Now? It's not what we grew up seeing and Rahm will be fine. Not saying he will win but the occasion and course will not be too much for him.

    As am I. I struggle to throw rookies in things like "one of the best drivers in the game" or "one of the best short games" ...not because they don't have talent...it's because they (rookies) haven't really haven't really experienced the full gamut of emotions and or tough times. To be labeled as One of the best at anything your "skill" needs to have been really put to the test and been forged in fire. I'm not sure he has really been in enough situations with his back against the wall to warrant the accolades. hence his nuts haven't dropped comment.

    so far it looks like Na may have the last laugh...at least after the first round. I literally laughed out loud when on the first tee he puts it in the fescue
