A Note on the U.S. Open

Here’s a possibility for this afternoon’s golf: what if the USGA set-up people feel they must, having set the course easy the past three days, they really can’t reverse gear to make Congressional hard today. The risk of a Rory meltdown—which undoubtedly would reflect badly on the USGA bluecoats—is too great. Hence, with an easy set-up, what if someone now at even par (Stricker, say) went out and shot a 29 on Congressional’s front—before Rory teed off? Suddenly, what seemed like an insurmountable lead might look pretty vulnerable: a two-shot lead with 18 to go doesn’t seem that safe. But to go further down that line really is almost unspeakable … In any case, this afternoon has a chance to be the greatest tournament round in the history of the U.S. Open. Or even better.
