World’s Best Golfers Expect Difficult Challenge at This Year’s U.S. Open
The World’s best golfers will tackle one of the world’s toughest courses this week at the U-S Open.
Golf’s second major will go down at the Oakmont Country Club near Pittsburgh.
This venue is generally regarded as one of the hardest courses you’ll ever play, and yet it features few trees and no water.
It’s the rough, and the speed of the greens that are diabolical.
The top three ranked golfers in the world are mentally preparing for the challenge.
Said World Number One Jason Day,”You have to have a good attitude regardless of what the situation is. Last year at Chamber’s Bay we saw a lot of the professionals complain about the greens. It just doesn’t help.”
Said World Number Two Jordan Spieth-“With the wind yesterday, it would have been. I would have signed probably for somewhere around 75 or 76 and shaken everyone’s hand and said I’m going to go back and have a beer after that.”(laughter)
Added World Number Three Rory Mcilroy-“To be able to win on a course like this. With the conditions the way they are. It would probably be my. It would make me feel like a more complete player.”
