Ryan Palmer is leading the US Open

That is not possible. He doesn’t make a full turn, complete his back swing and get his club to parallel.

He isn’t flexible, doesn’t go low and slow, nor does he hold the lag.

He must be taking advantage of this course, that is nothing but a well manicured muni. This course has no canyons, rock piles in the middle of the fairway or multi tiered greens. So it has to be tricked up with fast greens, pins tucked near the edges and actual rough. Those things are unfair.

What is the World coming to?

PS-Is it really necessary to call a 523 yard hole with a peninsula green a par 4 just for the sake of the winner being 4 less under par at the end of the week? If a hole is 523 yards…it’s a frickin par 5…unless it’s in the mountains of Peru and 500 feet of elevation change down hill. Can we be a little more pretentious?

(For those not familiar with me…the above is all sarcasm directed at modern golf)

    You write, “PS-Is it really necessary to call a 523 yard hole with a peninsula green a par 4 just for the sake of the winner being 4 less under par at the end of the week? ”

    It is if you’re the USGA, and largely ego-driven.

    It’s not about the competitors, it’s about them.
