"So yeah, it hasn't been the best preparation in terms of competitively playing, but this is the first time I have got to the US Open on a Friday and I've played three really good practice rounds".

"It's not like the Players Championship or the Masters or the John Deere or whatever where it is the same place, so it has its challenges".

PGA Tour victor, Kevin Na demonstrated the sheer difficulty of escaping from the native grasses, which had looked set to devour wayward golf balls and lead to potentially high scores. There is talk that the 18 hole could play up to 700 yards. Their attitude makes up for at least 25 per cent of performance, and if you have the right attitude going in for the week, great. "If we can't hit it within that avenue, you might as well pack your bags and go home". Even the first and second cut is another 10 yards on top of that. I'd keep an eye on this as we get closer to Thursday.

"Usually when you hear people complain, it's one less guy you have to worry about at the start of the week".

More often than not the winning score at the U.S. Open is within a few strokes of even par, which means 288 is a pretty good target at Erin Hills this week.

The removal of swathes of the grass followed complaints by some players who had posted videos on social media to demonstrate that the grass was unplayable.

"I'd much rather the course harder than easier, tough conditions, windy conditions, rain whatever it is, as long as it's harder, I feel like I play a lot better in conditions like that", said Day.

The action came after Trump had previously asked Bharara to stay on as US attorney, according to Bharara and those close to him. He said there should be an arms-length relationship between the president and those that are in a position to investigate him.

"It's a tough one: you don't really know how you're going to do here". It goes in these collection areas and run-offs.

Add in a wedding and a change in equipment and it's clear to see why some suspect the 28-year-old will be up against it at Erin Hills. I don't feel it at all.

"So if you've got 50 or 60 yards to hit into and you're complaining about the fescue that's wider than that, I don't think that's an issue". As always, I'll be basing my player selections off of multiple data sources.

There are 17 other players from the 2011 Amateur who are in the field for the 2017 U.S. Open.

"If you hit it in the fescue here you deserve to be punished". "That was six years ago and I didn't do the same kind of homework that I do these days with golf courses". Definitely like the golf courses up here, they're tremendous golf courses, but I'm just trying to do the best job I can. From there, you could see how fast it just took off toward the hole.

The USGA has been criticized for its decisions at several recent championships, so the success of this year's U.S. Open is viewed by many as a must.

"Hopefully, I can play well to make it worth it on everybody's part". Rory McIlroy is clearly following the same approach as the most decorate champion in history.
