pgatour says 71?
The U.S. Open will return to the Lake Course of the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California this week. 2012 marks the fifth time that the course will hold the US Open, as the club previously hosted the Open in 1955, 1966, 1987 and 1998.
The course will play as a par 70 this year and will measure 7,170 yards. The course rating is 76.5, and the slope rating is listed at 145. The course originally opened in 1924 and was designed by Willie Watson. It was heavily modified by Robert Trent Jones in preparation for the 1955 U.S. Open. It has undergone further renovations over the years to keep up with increasing distances by pro golfers.
Got it. Thanks. Enjoy!
It is a par 70 and its layout is tricky. Tiger will start from the 9th hole on Thursday as another member of Club Tiger indicated the 9th hole is closer to the clubhouse than the 10th hole.
Here is what I want to see, how the golfers go from the 7th to 8th hole. :)
As Tiger has stated, "Par is always a good score at a U.S. Open." Therefore, I believe Tiger will be playing each hole to make a par. Therefore, I think his final score for the tournament will be around 280. :)
