A few more thoughts about the US Open

After Bart Bryant made a series of great one-putts on the last five holes at Muirfield Village to win The Memorial, in this post I brought out the old cliche about driving for show and and putting for dough. Well, darn, if today’s finish at the US Open did not prove the point again. I was truly awed by Tiger’s ball striking down the stretch, but it was Michael Campbell’s ability to roll in the putts which meant a relatively calm stroll down 18 to secure the championship.

I enjoyed watching the US Open on TV even more because I had seen the course in person. But I still thought all the holes felt and looked the same on TV. I know the USGA is in love with Pinehurst, but I wonder if others think the US Open should return to this venue again and again.
