    pretty sure lacc is one and done for a while ... what did davis say the other day, 7 courses or so? ... minus, the cc & lacc, that's your 7 ... i haven't heard/read if they put in sub air at oakland hills, but each one of those courses should go ahead and bite the bullet ... pebble had sub air last year, so i wonder if this is only the 2nd time a US Open was at a course with subair ... that afford a tremendous amount of control, i would think, in bringing it close to the edge, based on weather conditions ...

    i don't think champions was a mistake, but i highly doubt they'd go to houston in june ... southern hills has been renovated, and i think is probably more in the running for the pga since it has moved to may ... texas just doesn't have a tier of really high quality golf courses ... might be one or two ranked in the top 100 in the US ...
  3. farmlinks will probably be top condition ... it's a research facility for turf/grass/etc, and they actually go out and fix ballmarks throughout the week ... you can see the fixed pitchmarks that the lazy a-holes don't fix ... (insert rant about ballmarks and insults directed in every possible direction) ... might want to check about alcohol policy ... may need to sneak something in ... can't remember ... website for rtj grand national indicates they will vent the greens on the links on sept 22/23 ... 5 day recovery ... don't know how that schedule has changed since the pandemic s

    bethpage is out ... that's not a possibility ... i'd be interested to know what texas area courses you think could host a US Open ... in June ... i don't know if any myself ...

    oh, i agree ... bryson's not some olympic athlete ... and that's not the perception HE's trying to give ... it's the image the media wants to project ... but reed gets called all kinds of names here and elsewhere, and 95 % of us look just like him, or worse ...

    agree ... not shooting 7 under every round does not a 'struggle' make ...

    yep ... and i'm not sure why people mock reed's physique ... but it's america, i guess ... no reason to not take a shot at another person's physical appearance ... he's not trim, but he's more stocky than anything ...

    so, i guess the folks on tv, who generally said "don't worry, it'll get much tougher tomorrow", kind of know what they're talking about ...
  9. not 'world ranked' ... probably not even ranked in the US (both) ... i'm sure they are very nice courses, tho ... both sunningdale courses are ranked in every top 100 ranking, for the most part ... wf east might ranked in only several/a few top 100 ...
  10. i don't know what kind of stats there are, but i wouldn't be shocked if he was considered to be one of the greatest ball strikers ... he was scratch as a left hander and thought about applying for usga status as a left handed amateur ... don't remember much discussion about his bstriking vs putting, but he had a quirky temperament that could run hot, or at least uneven, so that is part of his 'lack of success' status ... was very athletic (triathlete at times) and could hit it a mile with very good control ...
  11. “I’ve had just about everything happen to me in the game of golf,” Spieth said. “So it’s not very hard for me to reset after two holes of a 72-hole tournament.” man, ain't that the truth ... he can triple a 120 yd hole and come back with a birdie run, as good as anybody ... but that triple don't go away ...
  12. not off topic at all ... another good point, in a long line of many, of how golfers enjoy viewing golf on tv without those annoying things called "fans" ... i'm sure there will be a net gain from having fans back, but have said and continue to say that if you polled golfers anonymously, the majority would prefer no fans, unless it's augusta/the memorial/maybe arnie's place ...
