Brandel Chamblee: 'Everything points to Rory McIlroy' at the US Open

Jun 13 2017 Erin WI USA Fans try to get Rory Mc Ilroy to sign autographs as he walks to the practice range during a practice round of

"It's always a physical test". He reiterated that he likes the test Erin Hills presents, and said he regrets that his video was interpreted by some as a knock on the tournament as a whole.

"And with the weather conditions, it doesn't look like it's going to blow too ridiculously hard, if I'm looking at the forecast now, " he said. "Even the first and second cut [of intermediate rough] is another 10 yards on top of that", McIlroy said on Tuesday.

"I feel great and I showed some good signs of form last week to finish up in Memphis", the 31-year-old Invernesian said. I get that it's thick and whatever, but it's a hazard. "If you put red lines just right along that people wouldn't complain". It's real easy to see it's not the usual U.S. Open golf course.

"If he can get off to a good start and then it [confidence] starts to flow back...he knows how to win these and he's done it on wet golf courses". It is an American course with a bit of a Scottish feel and if the wind blows, as it often does, the USGA will have all the difficulty it seeks with the U.S. Open. If you haven't gotten yours, make sure you get them quickly.

Johnson will be grouped with Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer, the two previous US Open winners, in Thursday's opening round.

The hole slopes pretty severely from right to left and boasts waves of undulations between within the fairway itself. "That was six years ago and I didn't do the same kind of homework that I do these days with golf courses".

What's different compared to other US Opens, though, is that as high as the fescue grass is in being a legitimate deterrent to wild tee-shots, the fairways are untypically wide for this particular championship which has thrived on traditional narrow landing areas.

In his first tournament as a pro, he shot 64 at Congressional - which has hosted three US Opens - and was leading the Quicken Loans National.

Meanwhile, the United States position was clarified in a footnote. Back at home, environmental groups criticized Pruitt's moves. While in Italy, Pruitt made stops in Rome and the Vatican.

"If this was gorse instead of fine fescue, we'd all say, well, it's just gorse", Hurdzan said.

The program gives golfers firsthand experience of what you can get out of playing just nine holes. The first is that the course is playing at a par of 72 for the first time in 25 years.

The rains that soaked the course Monday and Tuesday might have more to do with the outcome than the fescue. At the Players Championship a month ago, McIlroy's back issues the result of an earlier rib injury returned and he has not played since.

"There's no complaints from me", said Day, sounding like a man who's ready for anything Erin Hills blows his way.

"Rory has played only five tournaments this year and, through no fault of his own, he went into the Masters [where he finished T7] seriously undercooked", McKinley noted.

"My long game certainly lifted last week in Memphis, which I was really happy to see".

The world No2 has been based a 40-minute drive from the course since last Friday and getting in practice ahead of his rivals, most of did who not start arriving to Monday.
