Hadwin ready to take major game to 'next level — MCCARTHY

Hadwin ready to take major game to 'next level — MCCARTHY”

Avoiding the long grass is vital since the heavy rough makes it very hard for golfers to get their approach shots to the green.

Hadwin likes the fact that the rough is graduated and that players who miss the fairway by five to seven yards will be more severely penalized than players who miss it by five to seven feet. 2020 PGA Championship victor Collin Morikawa is aware of this, even with playing just 9 holes in a practice round on Tuesday.

It's also the first time the US Open will be played outside of June since 1931. "You have to hit good shots". To this day, it remains the highest 72-hole score to win a major championship. And I'm not saying that I want to have hard days to get over, but yeah, you're a little more relaxed. Someone with a good track record at the Masters will be a good barometer for success at Winged Foot.

"I've only done it once, but I've done it", he said on Tuesday.

It's a great time in Canadian golf with the 23-year-old Henderson leading the pack and with Hadwin, Mackenzie Hughes, 29, Corey Conners, 28, and Nick Taylor, 32, all appearing poised to hit their prime at the same time.

He at least was heartened to hear that volunteer marshals were being brought in for the practice rounds. They just remember Mickelson making double-bogey on the last hole of the tournament after hitting his tee shot off a hospitality tent, then trying a insane second shot that turned out more die than do.

"The practice rounds would have been 10 hours out here trying to find golf balls", Woodland said.

McIlroy's wife Erica gave birth to the couple's first child, Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, two weeks ago and the timing allowed him to compete in the season-ending Tour Championship.

Players start with probably the most hard green on the golf course, a green so severely sloped that in 2006 the USGA didn't bother trying to measure it with a Stimpmeter because they couldn't find anywhere flat enough to get an accurate number.

In 1974, Hale Irwin won the U.S. Open shooting a 7-over-par finishing score. His opinion didn't change when he arrived over the weekend. Again, going back to Oakmont, it's is a wonderful golf course, but I think Oakmont set-up normally is right about on the edge, and if you just go a little further, then that can start to get a little goofy, where here it doesn't seem like that can happen. "This one or Oakmont here is either one or two".

McIlroy is off diaper duty for this week's rescheduled U.S. Open, which gets underway at Winged Foot Golf Club in NY amid the coronavirus pandemic on Thursday.

No wonder Rahm said he would be surprised if anyone broke par, and if they did, would win by a large margin. They are in the same group for the second straight major. When asked about his thoughts on the golf course, World No. 3 Justin Thomas described Winged Foot as "fun".

"There's still places where precision beats power, and that's been the case here at US Opens in the past". It's hard, so it's a different kind of fun, but it is fun.

"The first three or four greens on this golf course are pretty wild, lots of slope", he said. "It's because it's been poorly set up".

"I think that's maybe something that I haven't done so well in the past".

"You just have to embrace it. There's going to be times when you have really no chance of advancing it very far".

"I mean, I expect to play well every week". I think that's been the big thing. I can't only try to make pars.

Swedish professional Daniel Chopra, a popular figure to Asian fans mainly because his father is Indian and a familiar face on Fox Sports television, says: "The Open will be on one of the toughest courses in the world, and the greens will be some of the most undulating ones that the golfers will face all year barring Augusta National". "Because it's already big".
