American professional Kevin Na caused a stir this week with an Instagram post in which he pilloried the length of the rough at Erin Hills, but it did not ring true with Day, nor with Rory McIlroy, who said the deeper rough was so wide that it should not be an issue other than for a awful shot.

Erin Hills is long, wide, now wet, and very unlike the traditional courses used to host the U.S. Open. "I see closer to 5- to 10-under. Someone who has very good control of the ball off the tee will have plenty of opportunities to make birdies, given the conditions that we're expecting".

Spieth was referring to heavy rain Monday and Tuesday, with more in the forecast for Wednesday and possibly Friday and Saturday.

"I think a year ago there were two things we fell short on - it took too long to make the ruling and it left uncertainty with the competition", said John Bodenhamer, the USGA's managing director of rules and competition.

"I think the bunkering is quite severe. And if the conditions bring the scores further away from par, so be it". Along with winning at Torrey Pines with an eagle on his final hole, Rahm challenged Dustin Johnson in Mexico and scared him in Match Play when Johnson was on his three-tournament winning streak. It just depends on where it ends up, what the lie is.

"We definitely see that people are more interested in playing nine holes", said Vertabedian.

"I've always sized him up as one of those guys that doesn't have to have his best stuff to get in contention and win", Azinger said.

With the past six major golf championships won by firsttimers, could there be a magnificent seventh at the US Open beginning on Thursday?

I'm of the opinion that because of the insane wide fairways, the USGA should have left everything alone and let the course play as it stands. If I pick one (a win) up here, great.

"I'm simply a golf fan, so I'd be out here today anyway", Surges said. I might start eating cheese. Then I had more and more people come up to me and say, hey, why aren't you in? "... It's a U. S. Open". Pacific time; Mickelson's first-round tee time is 2:20 Central time.

Instead of participating in a news conference Tuesday afternoon, for example, he would've been in Racine caddying for his daughter Bobbi in the first round of the Wisconsin Women's State Open.

He had previously said he would not travel to Wisconsin until fiancee Paulina Gretzky gave birth.

Steve Stricker, a brand ambassador for Stelle Audio, will wear the company's logo on his shirts and outerwear starting this week.

"For those players who are making a big deal about the high, thick fescue along the 7,800-yard setup at Erin Hills, host of the U.S. Open this week, saying it's" unplayable", "unhittable", "unfindable", and that it's, yes, all so "unbelievable", I say, "quit whining!" First, he advanced through the local qualifier at the Country Club of York on May 11 by prevailing in a sudden-death playoff to earn the fifth and last available slot.
