Brad Faxon indicating that the USGA approached Bryson and his people regarding pairing him and Brooksy…Bryson said it was not of interest to him.

I didn't know the players had a choice.  The USGA once paired three fatsos together - I'm pretty sure one or two of them was not interested either...

I would doubt that since the Winner of the previous year plays with the US amateur champ and a current major winner

Why have the final round end at 8pm EST.  I thought prime time golf was the reason for a west coast tourney?  

I'm assuming it's because the US Olympic Trials are being broadcast at 8.

 

Probably just a scheduling conflict from NBC buying out the US Open rights and having the olympics delayed last year.

In case they need a lot of extra holes. The reason why the USGA dropped the 18 hole playoff format on the following Monday, is because TV demands on winner on Sunday. If they run out of daylight, and have to finish on Monday anyway, the USGA will have a LOT to answer for. Sir Fuego gave a good guess as to the reasoning as well.

 

Personally, I miss the Monday playoff.

Could the viewing schedule for Thursday and Friday get anymore convoluted? Also, no streaming of "featured" groups?

Dude I noticed that too. How do these majors not have the Masters thing where you can watch all the shots of any player(s) you choose? Get with it already.

There is featured group coverage, but its through the USOpen.com directly.

 

Koepka, Thomas, Morikawa & Homa, Mickelson, Schauffele - Thursday AM

Matsuyama, DeChambeau, Strafaci & Johnson, McIlroy, Rose - Thursday PM

 

I was wondering if the powers-that-be would be like Dr. Evil and put Koepka and DeChambeau together in the same group to see how they counter-protest each other and fan team counter-protest their archrival.  They took the high road.

DeJonge, Stadler and Sugar Shane Lowery in 2014.  “I don’t care,” Stadler insisted. “It’s not like I don’t pretend that I’m not a fat a s s.”

Just the messenger here 😃 Suspect that Brad Faxon might know what he is talking about though.

Torrey Pines ... everytime I see it I think yeah its nice, but a week afterwards I cannot remember a single hole. Have seen it on TV nearly as many times as PB, PB I can pretty much recite except for the boring 11-16, but on Torrey I do not remember a single hole. No holes with an identity, like.

 

That’s a good way of putting it Hank. A massive green space with some nice views over the ocean. All I can think of is the Par 3 hitting back to the ocean and the pond in front of 18. The rest not so much.

This is the true Open Championship. That is to say, it's more open to nobodies with a dream than the other one across the pond. They need to sue the R&A for false advertising.

 

Got to agree. The R&A offering only 3 spots at each FQ venue is contemptuous. Cut the past champion category down to those who remain competitive, ditch some of the other random exemptions and make it at least 5 at FQ.

 

This is the only area where the USGA have the edge over the R&A though!

Agree. Having an ocean next to the course is no guarantee of architectural excellence. I’ve played TP three times and recall very little. Pebble four, and remember much of the course (but to be fair I see it every year on TV, including Jim Nance’s house 🙂 ). Then there’s Cypress. I  was fortunate to play 4 rounds there as part of a memorable 40th birthday trip some time ago (along with Olympic and SFGC). I can still draw every single hole out on paper, with many defining features, including the inland holes which in my opinion may even be better than 15 and 16.  17 is without comparison and unlike others I actually like 18.  Jon
