This year is at Merion, I used to caddy there when I missed the cut in USA.... a lot haha... Hated it.... 2 Bags at a time...

Little known fact, Merion does not have flags.....



They have these Baskets, harder now to see wind direction.

Very nice course though. Got to play there regularly....

Can't wait for the US Open! Only a handful of players have visited Merion lately (Tiger, Phil, Adam Scott and Brandt Snedeker... I think Justin Rose visited the course this morning too), but even with the shortened length, I'm sure it'll be a tough test!

It will not be easy, by today's standards it is not long, but it is narrow.

Latest news Lee Janzen who has won the Open twice was disqualified from Pre Q for wearing metal spikes.... Rules are rules......

I think the older players like fred funk who drive the ball straight have a fair chance here.

Lucky for us on the west coast though - looks like we won't miss toooooo much of the first round while we're at work Very Happy 

In the meantime, check out what Titleist gave Webb Simpson for his win last year at the Olympic Club for the US Open!
