The start of the U.S. Open is still a few days away, but already we’re hearing the traditional complaining about the rough.
Kevin Na posted a video on Sunday in which he demonstrated how penal the deep stuff is at Erin Hills. He tossed a ball just a few yards off the fairway and watched it disappear. Then he tried to hit a couple of balls out of the rough, failing to move one at all and barely moving the other.
“Every hole we’ve got this,” he says. “Every hole.”
Na had a suggestion. “Why can’t we have a lot of the past U.S. Open winners get together and set up a major?” he asks. “I’d like to see that happen one day.”
Watch it for yourself:
Erin Hills is a great design course but the fescue is almost unplayable. BTW never found the ball. So don't hit it in there lol. straight hitters have a chance! #usopen #erinhills #mikedavis #lostball #usga
