U.S. Open week has arrived and the USGA is on formal notice from The Dog House:
DON’T SCREW THIS ONE UP!
The stuffed shirts and starched collars from the good old United States Golf Association haven’t done the best of jobs at their signature championship over the past few years.
This year’s venue is the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links and the golf world is hoping that the USGA will get it right — get the setup right, not feature five and a half-hour rounds of grinding golf that makes you just want to scream: STOP IT!
The USGA desperately needs a win. They broke the slow barrier two weeks ago in Charleston when the women’s weren’t pushing five hour rounds, they were going on SIX HOURS!
Seriously, the USGA better check itself and get this championship right.
The dogs will be down there playing on the beach so obviously they don’t care how slow the play may be — but everyone else does.
Otherwise, we should just go play on the beach with the dogs. It would be a lot more fun.
