If you are a golfer, or even if you are not but are trying to watch this years US Open from Washington State, you are probably not alone complaining about the look of the course.
The brown dead appearance is on purpose. Go figure. Here’s why the grass isn’t greener. But Chambers Bay is supposed to be different, and it’s supposed to be brown. Most of the course is made of what’s called fescue grass, which grows slowly, requires less water, and is drought-resistant, says NPR.
The pros aren’t too keen on the course either and not being shy about saying so on their social media accounts.
The worst golf course I might’ve ever seen in the 63 years as a professional golfer…..
Said Gary Player re this years Open at Chambers Bay… The USGA, who I admire and have chosen great golf courses in this great United States of America — they’re preaching speed of play. Enjoyment. User-friendly. This golf course here, if you’re a 10-handicap, you couldn’t break 100 if you had the best day of your life. They’ve got pros putting from 20 feet and hitting the ball 20 foot to the right, a man misses the green by a yard and he’s 50 yards down in the valley. I mean I don’t understand it.”
Add to the fol de rol that Fox Sports is airing the weekend event with snoozefest anchors like Joe Buck and egomaniac pretend doctor Greg Norman, and you have a good reason to scream at the TV.
Fox is getting an earful about its coverage. The USGA hearing it about the choice of course. So what better timing than to have photos of a real golf course, The Westchester Country Club in Rye where Sound Beacher volunteered last week at the Women’s PGA event.
I really liked Michelle Wei’s bag, she had a big following throughout the tournament. She didn’t play great, but she wore a golf dress on Sunday and looked great, she’s six feet tall. She’s been have injury problems as you can see she’s wearing a brace on her ankle and her hip is taped up and it was her him that cause he to withdraw from the tournament before this one.
Hole #8 the announcers on TV kept calling it the most challenging hole on the course. A lay up before the water and a dog leg left to the green. I got to see Inbee Park tee off there. I didn’t ask her for a photo, but other did and I should have since she 3-peated her win of this tourney!! Can I take a mulligan on that decision??
Happy Father’s Day too, to all you men who are there for your kids.
