This week marks the week of the US Open. Augusta and the Masters are superb. The PGA Championship is my affiliation’s occasion. The British Open is great for everybody. However the US Open is particular.
The US Open is an interesting occasion. It’s sometimes held on traditionally nice golf programs, and the historical past surrounding the occasion itself is staggering. The fascinating factor is that, once you see the US Open, some issues leap out. The primary one is the size. The golf course might be very lengthy. There might be some numbers that you could be not perceive, corresponding to a 500-yard par four or a 300-yard par three. The golf course is a monster in size.
The second fascinating factor is how tough it’s. It is going to be excessive; Golf balls might be tough to seek out and transferring the ball out of that tough might be a battle. Tour gamers are used to advancing each second shot to the inexperienced, however not this week. Put the ball in play, take it to the road, that would be the norm.
The third fascinating factor is the inexperienced velocity. These guys can have a headache on the fourth gap. The velocity, ripples, and pin placement will push avid gamers to the brink of their persistence and actuality. Tour gamers should not used to being challenged at each putt. Each golf course has fascinating putt or pin places, however the US Open is ready up so placing, each greens, and each try is a giant problem.
Lastly, simply watch and luxuriate in. The challenges, problem, length and velocity are far more gratifying than the common Tour occasion. Mix that with the story. Win this occasion and your title might be on a trophy with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and Bobby Jones. Failing to win a US Open has left massive holes within the resumes of gamers, most notably Phil Mickelson and his West Virginia native son Sam Snead.
Benefit from the US Open, it’s a distinctive sight and essentially the most fascinating golf of the 12 months. There’s a saying that gamers do not win the Open, they beat you. I, for one, cannot wait to see who wins the US Open this 12 months.
