    Course - Winged Foot Golf Club West I Mamaroneck, NY
    Par - 70
    Yardage - 7,447
    Coverage - NBC, Golf Channel and Peacock (featured groups) - looks like the NBC broadcast will be in 4K

    This course is really hard and Phil isn’t as fat as he was 14 years ago. Should be interesting to see what lies these guys will get from the rough without fans.

    I should be at a house behind the 10th green on Saturday, so if anyone sees some make-shift bleachers or a scissor lift set up back there...yeah that’s us.

    Interesting to hear the USGA stressing that they’re “just letting Winged Foot be Winged Foot”. They’re both very right and very wrong in saying that.

    On one hand, other than Oakmont there’s probably no other US Open course that is set up and plays as difficult as Winged Foot on a daily basis. There’s very little they need to do to get the property US Open ready from a normal day of play. The fairway corridors and widths are exactly the same as every day play.

    That said, they absolutely do make some changes. The rough is always thick and lush, but it’s never this long on a daily basis. The greens always run 10+, but generally not 13. They’re also generally very firm but not rock hard. This isn’t *exactly* what the membership faces on a daily basis, and those differences make a world of difference in terms of difficulty.

    Just look at the PGA Championship winning score at WFW vs the US Open winning scores. Different setup entirely.

    I’d think way too much about turning my wrists over in an effort to keep it straight, snap hook it into the first tree on the left and catch it in the teeth on the ricochet.

    He has holes 13-18 left, which is the toughest stretch on the property. Going to be interesting to see his finish.

    By no means a golf expert but this isn't the bloodbath I was hoping to see. Nearly 20 guys under par. Some high scores for sure but based on what I read I was expecting just a handful of people to get under par

    Nike gets seemingly worse every year during major season.

    Overall, today felt like a Masters to me. Wildly fast, undulating greens which led to some fun ejections. But also some softness and pin positions that allowed for scoring on half the holes. That’s great and all for The Masters, but we have two of those coming up over the next half year. Let’s make this a US Open.

    This goes along with that point you made in the golf thread. Have to think daylight is a factor.
