The U.S. Open begins in just under two weeks down I-476, only 33 miles from my house. Merion Golf Club is hosting the Open for the first time since 1981 and for the 5th time overall.
I’ve lived in the Philly-metro area for 15 years, but have never had the opportunity to experience one of the best courses in the country. I will get to see it though for a practice round, and that will be cool.
Can any one explain the USGA ” no cell phones, including those with photographic capabilities” policy at the Open? Yes, at times people can be idiots and not mute their phones, but I don’t get it. You can, however, take cameras.
I want to watch the range sessions, see what sort of process these guys have in preparing for an Open. I doubt I have the patience to go on course and watch practice rounds, though.
Who’s going to take home the U.S. Open trophy on Father’s Day?
