An Aussie fond of cheeseheads: Jason Day all in on Wisconsin

An Aussie fond of cheeseheads: Jason Day all in on Wisconsin”

With the championship coming to Erin Hills for the first time, everyone was waiting to hear the players' reaction to the sprawling Wisconsin golf course.

He won the Farmers Insurance Open in January and has recorded five more top-five finishes to zoom up the world rankings to number 10.

The players might like their steaks thick and juicy.

"I don't remember much from 2011". "[If] you hit 100 drivers a day and you swing at the ball at 120 miles an hour, it's going to take its toll a little bit".

"As it all turned out it was meant to be the way I did it". While watching them play provides plenty of excitement and fun, the USGA hopes many who watch will also get out and play after the tournament wraps up. "We have 60 yards (of fairway) from left line to right line", McIlroy seethed. After all, we all know what happened the last time the U.S. Open finished on a par-5... "You've got 156 of the best players in the world here".

ERIN, Wis. - The storms moved in overnight and kept pounding Erin Hills through the morning, closing the course for some three hours with just two practice days remaining before the U.S. Open. "And I think there's enough of a challenge anyway, but if you're playing poorly at a US Open and you're hitting it poor enough to go in that rough here, then you probably weren't going to do too well at the US Open no the matter where it was".

Whether they actually chose to cut it back due to the rain or whether they caved under the pressure of criticism from the professionals, it's hard to say.

But a USGA spokesman said the decision to trim the fescue was a reaction to the weather conditions that are expected, not Na's video.

Johnson will be grouped with Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer, the two previous U.S. Open winners, starting from the 10th tee at 8:35 AM CT (1335 GMT) in Thursday's opening round. My long game is at the level I like to see it, especially on a course where it will be tested more than anywhere else this year. But more on that in a moment.

"Hopefully, I can play well to make it worth it on everybody's part".

The green itself is elevated and protected by a series of bunkers.

"And if guys can't put it into play within a 50-60 yard zone I don't think they've got much to complain about". "And then if the winds are reversed, you might have to do the opposite".

"A lot of people might have laid up or tried to give themselves a better chance to make par, finish second or get nearly all the money needed to take the card", he said. He shot, I think 16-under par, I shot 8-under par, and we got lapped by him.

And there was a time when Europeans couldn't win a major.

"We not only learned from it, but we made changes", USGA executive director Mike Davis said.

He is allowed to play practice rounds at Erin Hills.

"At a place like Erin Hills, they really have a lot of different options as far as tees and stuff to use", he said. "What is now the 9th hole used to be the bye hole".

The program gives golfers firsthand experience of what you can get out of playing just nine holes.
