Wisconsin's Stricker happy Open is at home

It's just about managing my practice schedule and not overdoing it. Absolutely, which is why griping by the players has become a U.S. Open tradition.

Much has been made about the creation of Erin Hills, built on a 650-acre tract of Wisconsin farmland that was, according to USGA executive director Mike Davis, simply screaming to have a golf course built on it.

"Growing up, I always believed you needed to be good driver of the golf ball to win the US Open", said Scott.

This year, he'll play at Erin Hills in his first U.S. Open since he was cut in 2004 following his U.S. Amateur win.

"We try to make the course exacting", Davis said. "Maybe five to 10, based on what we're seeing here so far".

Johnson not only hits it long, he also hits is straight most of the time.

Na initially couldn't find the ball. BTW never found the ball.

Rory McIlroy has heaped praise on 2017 US Open venue Erin Hills in an interview with the USGA, and discussed how to play the testing Wisconsin track.

The rough at Erin Hills looks very similar to that at Carnoustie, where Garcia nearly won the Open in 2007, losing in a play-off to Padraig Harrington.

Rahm played a full round of practice on Monday and was full of enthusiasm.

Although some of the landing areas are almost 50 yards wide, the penalty for an extremely errant tee shot will be severe, so much so, the notion that Erin Hills is little more than a bomber's paradise may not be entirely correct.

Erin Hills appears to be more than simply the sum of its shin-high fescue or the yardage on the card.

He described it as "This is one of those moments where you look back on life and you just don't want to miss it".

To prepare for this U.S. Open, Spieth arrived Friday.

This will be Palmer's 26th appearance in a major tournament, the most-ever majors played in by an Amarillo native.

Holes to look out for? . That's what you don't have out here. So put it in the wider area.

"The scale and setting is so grand it's nearly unbelievable when you see it", said Fry.

And, if you have an Apple TV device, then you can start watching the 2017 U.S. Open on TV starting at 8:30 a.m. for the first two days of the championship. You get the sense players are analyzing and judging every fairway, bunker, and green on a course that most compare to the controversial Chambers Bay in 2015.

He stopped short of demonstrating his rap technique at a podium during a major championship news conference, though.

In addition to the scoring opportunities on the Par 5's, many players and experts have been raving about the pureness of the greens in the weeks prior to the start of the tournament.

So go ahead and cross out Na and anyone else who gripes this week. While other golfers were intimidated by the course and especially the setup, he was competitive and confident enough to accept the challenge and rise to the occasion. "Sometimes not seeing or knowing where the trouble is, and how bad it is". Just make sure you pack the allergy medication.

With that in mind, the tan, light green and even brown fescue is much thinner, less dense in its grouping and much easier for players to play from and swing through. His hay fever is bugging him, too.

Stenson is also predicting a roaring trade for local pharmacists.
