What a show he put on. I remember years back watching another young golfer that put on a performance like that. Can anyone guess who that was? I kept watching for RM to come back to the group but it never happened.

Glad to see RORY deliver after that.....disaster at the Masters. Seems like a nice....deserving winner. I like happy endings.
Kid can flat ass hit the ball!

Re: Us open starts today

I was out at the tournament Friday and I gotta say the USGA did a piss poor job setting up the course. The ruff was not that high. On top of that, as the scores were getting pretty low, they moved the tees up Sat. on several holes. This isn't a regular tour event and par is supposed to be protected. Although the course was longer than it was in 97 the course was played much tougher 14 years ago.

You have to think the rain slowed the course down. They didnt water the course at all.

I think it seemed WAY too easy. It wasn't the challenge it usually is.

However, Rory embarrassed the field...won by 8. Congrats, man...made me look like a genius for a day.

The rain made it much easier for the players to hit the fairway not having to worry about it running through the fairway into the rough. The rough was probably set up that way because they figured that would be an issue and more players would be playing from the rough.

Re: Us open starts today

The rain certainly helped out the players but I was still surprised at how light the ruff was. They should've known that it would rain so the usga should've grown it out more. And moving up the tees on Sat was just ridiculous. Rory still would've won but that was not what I call a typical US Open.
