I need clarification about the 2012 U. S. Open venue.
I understand the tournament will be played on the Lake Course.
During the tournament, will the course be a par 70 or par 71?
Tiger stated hole 1 is a par 4 but at the PGA Tour's website its shown as a par 5 of 533 yards.
Tiger stated hole 3 is 250 yards but at the PGA Tour's website its shown as 233 yards.
The PGA Tour's website has 3 par 5's ---- holes 1, 16 and 17.
Who controls the layout of the golf course for the tournament, the USGA, the PGA Tour or the members of the Olympic Club?
#1 is a par 4 for the us open.
the hole yardage varies depending on where the tees are placed on the teebox, or, in some cases, if another teebox is used.
16 and 17 are par 5's for the us open.
the layout is controlled by the USGA, but is not USGA rated.
I really miss Border's. One could go to Border's and pick up the annual golf magazine and get the golf course layouts etc. for each of the majors. The only things I know for next week are the field and its a par 70.
No, I thought Borders went out of business. I will check a BN store and try to locate a story on the U.S. Open. I think par this year will be a good score for Tiger to win or make it into a Monday playoff. Last year Rory got lucky with how Congressional played, soft. There was no high temperatures & humidity last year in Maryland.
I have been trying to remember the name of the publisher for the golf magazine I use to purchase each year that discussed all the tournaments on the PGA Tour. The nearest I recall is something like Anthlon....?
