This is from a different thread
We’ve got almost three weeks grace until the next LIV golf spat starts 😂
Afraid that was never going to be the case!
Oddly there there seems to be a fair bit of 'side taking' both ways rather than 'wait & see'.
Expect the media will be full of it in the US Open build up.

Its a bad course, and a mess of a tournament as a result. I thought the USGA had gotten over their illconceived notion of beating par should win, and the uncontrollable lottery dense rough so close to greens. But this is back to the bad old days. Greens they cannot hold. And the straight edge between the first cut of the apron and the second cut of rough is really really really really bad as a golf course design point. Its crazy to expect people missing a green by a yard to have a ball run up to but not into a vertical wall of grass that the clubhead has to pass through. They could keep those rough depths if they wish, but need to one, start them further from grees, two, chamfer the transition.
Disappointed, USGA.

It’s a great course, and it’s creating a brilliant leaderboard.
