NFT: US Open- FOX

Sean : 6/17/2017 5:54 pm
I thought the US Open was supposed to be the toughest test in golf? Geez, these players are dominating this course. The FOX coverage is not good either.
Agree about the coverage...

Occasionaly they should show the player rankings right up to the cut-off and even beyond.
It was mid morning when I found out that Rory, Jordan, ... didn't make the cut.

They incorporate T&A into golf coverage and thats ground breaking. And longgg overdue and good for the sport.

FOX and golf just don't seem to be a fit, for whatever reason. Holly Sonders is unbelievably hot though, which makes it bearable.

As far as this course goes, length just doesn't affect these guys. They all hit it a mile. The fairways are too wide and the course is soft. I still think it's a fun course to watch an open on.

Shinnecock will be a different story next year. You won't see anything like these scores this year.

They will overreach with Shinnecock next year and make it impossible.

Yep. They did the last time it was there too. They had the greens dried out to the point where Michelson said it was like putting in a parking lot.
They were reliant

on firm conditions and wind impacting the scores big time here. So far the conditions have been soft and no wind, tomorrow there should be a lot of wind so we will see how it impacts scoring

Jordan made the cut.
Congrats to Brooks......

He was consistent and then he put the field away with birdies on 14, 15, and 16...
brooks hitting his 3 wood....  
thrunthrublue : 6/18/2017 9:58 pm : link
376 yards, that has him easily driving most par 4's on public courses with his driver, golf at that level is just incredible, along with the short game they have....amazing to watch.
It's weird I went to the driving range a few weeks ago first time in  
DennyInDenville : 6/18/2017 10:17 pm : link
A while

Didn't even use a club just an extra rental they had (driver)

I missed so many balls and hit so many poorly


But I cranked out quite a few drives well over 350 yards. Ball literally disappeared..

Was able to see the ones I hit 200-250 but the ones I really killed I couldn't see but apparently they went 350+

Maybe I should give this golf thing more effort

You drove the ball "well over" 350? And with a rental driver no less? And from the sounds of your post, you don't really golf?

Lol.
When you have time  
BigBlueShock : 6/19/2017 8:03 am : link
I'd love to hear some of your fishing stories too. Probably caught some whoppers in your time, huh?

Don't feed the troll.
He went to the driving range  
NNJ Tom : 6/19/2017 10:04 am : link
so he could play with some balls.

Lonely is the troll.
Jen didnit without a club too  
bradshaw44 : 6/19/2017 10:36 am : link
Now that's impressive. Just took a golf cart driver and hit it out of human vision. Guy must have been heavy.
*and he did it

Come on man. The guy is obviously good at what he does. Aren't you at least a little bit interested in hearing his stories of blue whale fishing in Lake Ontario?
So I guess driving the ball over 350 yards is a rare thing?  
DennyInDenville : 6/19/2017 4:02 pm : link
Good to know and no I don't play golf yet just been practicing at the range.


If I keep nailing them maybe I'll get an m2 club and drive the ball 750 yards!
