US Open:WEATHER FORECAST
The first round is forecast partly cloudy skies in the morning with some sunshine during the day. The high temperature is expected to be about 60 degrees with the wind blowing from 10-12 mph. Similar conditions are expected for Friday.
Erin Hills, a public field daily-fee northwest of Milwaukee, and Pebble Beach claimed the future U.S. Open an announcement by the USGA officials Wednesday.
Erin Hills was rumored to land the 2017 Open after earning good reviews when it opened in 2006. Built on laminate flooring, sand and minimalist design, Erin Hills recently underwent a major renovation to make it more capable of hosting an Open.
“Erin Hills has one of the greatest natural sites within a golf course I’ve seen,” said Mike Davis, USGA senior director of Rules and Competitions.
Pebble Beach, which also will host the 2018 U.S. Amateur, is celebrating its centenary when it hosts the U.S. Open 2019.
The U.S. Open will be played at Congressional Country Club in Washington, DC, next year.
Remember Ty Tryon, who grew up in the Raleigh area, turned pro at age 16, qualified for PGA Tour at 17 and then disappeared?
Tryon is a father of 26 years of age, now that is in the U.S. Open this week. After earning a spot through qualifying section in Rockville, Maryland, last week, Tryon and his wife, Hanna, was driving with her son four years old, across the fields to get to Pebble Beach.
They took their time, spending two days in Indiana, then the hip-frustrated Albuquerque, New Mexico, through Barstow, California, and Monterey Peninsula. It is the first appearance of Tryon, in a major championship.
How long is Phil Mickelson tapped in these days?
To keep the water out of the game right off the tee on the 523-yard, par-5 sixth hole, Mickelson said it reached a 4-iron off the tee of each day. It has done so in practice every day and hit 2-iron second shot up sharply over the green one day.
The pairing of the most intriguing first round does not necessarily mean Tiger Woods or Mickelson. Could it be the trio of 18 Ryo Ishikawa, Rory McIlroy 20-year-old, and Tom Watson 60 years of age. McIlroy sounded really excited about the couple when he spoke to on Wednesday.
Of course, he was not born when his famous chip hidden Watson in 1982 at the U.S. Open on the 17th hole.
Working behind the counter of a food stand in a golf tournament does not usually offer great views, but that’s not true at Pebble Beach. There’s a food stand – burgers are $ 9 beers are $ 7 by the way – to the right of the T 18 and gives workers a vision directly by the famous finishing hole. That’s assuming that they are not busy grabbing hot dogs and candy bars.
“A lot of guys can not handle the pressure from the U.S. Open. All that plays out after the first round. I’m excited to see what happens, to see if Tiger Woods can really get out of the box and put all their things behind, and indeed turn the clock back to 2000 and do his thing, and if Ernie Ells can get back on track, and Phil, the boy’s birthday today. There are a million stories. ”

“I think the 14th hole is the most difficult par-5 I’ve played in my life.” Rory McIlroy
“I think if San Andreas is the birthplace of golf, bowling, beach type feel as the home of American golf. I know that in other places, probably disagree with that, like Pinehurst probably claim that. But it feels like Pebble Beach home to championship golf. “Stewart Cink
“You look at the past champions and you have all styles. You have your Tiger Woods and Corey Pavins and that’s a testament to the tournament. No matter if you hit high or low, if you’re playing the best, you will win” . Lucas Glover at the U.S. Open.
