What can we expect? This is truly a piece of property that the golf world has never seen the likes of before. First, this course presents a tremendous challenge, it was set as a par-71 at 7,742 yards for the US Amateur Championship in 2010 - the longest course in USGA history. Undoubtedly, it will be set-up in a more challenging manner for this US Open, as it is the “strictest examination in golf.” The par will drop to a 70 but you can expect the layout to still play nearly 7800 yards.

The one main benefit the golfers might catch a break with is moisture. June is the end of a typically wet couple of months and (if the climate is typical) l the USGA will be unable to bake the course out. That has been a go-to move of theirs for ages now, it seems. This, of course, means that the course will play slower and allow the pros a better chance to keep the ball in play off the tees and to have approach shots stick a bit more on the greens than a typical US Open. However, slower does mean longer….and the course is plenty long to begin with.

As a fan, it will be compelling to watch how the world’s best deal with the enormous size of greens they will play to. The green complexes are massive and often contain 3 or 4 tiers on them. We might be looking at some very good three-putts, imagine that!

It’s going to an Open to remember.
