Pro's were bitching on Monday...good. I wanna see the fuckers cry. Couldn't get much further away from that dartboard Valhalla, and the tournament will be a great watch. Very rarely throughout the year are they actually tested with setup, and they always shit themselves when the ball is rolling along the ground as removes their control/adds variables, which they hate. Cannot wait to watch the imagination/variety of shots that we are going to see this week...and the blowups too ;)

Can't rule Brooks out completely (VERY good at hitting safe parts of greens), but it's Scottie's to lose.

Even by normal US Open standards, it sounds like Pinehurst is going to be a huge challenge.

Looking forward to seeing if anyone can tame it this week. Some of the greens look like they're made of concrete.

18:14 tee time for McIlroy, Schauffele and Scheffler - should be well worth tuning in for that.

Some round by Rory tbf, no bogeys on a seriously tough course!

enjoyed watching the struggles for the last few hours, but can’t help wondering if I’d make it round in under 120 there 😂

I really hope Rory has a solid day.

i want him to get another big one, i feel like if he gets one he'll get a few over the next couple of years.

it would be satisfying to see him wearing the green jacket in the near future.

Excellent day of Golf. Patient round by Rory, Scheffler had his C-game and is not far back. Cantlay was an odd one, missed a lot of greens, but scrambled well; doesn't feel sustainable though.
Reckon they've got the course exactly where they want it; it'll firm up from now onwards, wouldn't be surprised to see 6/7 under win it.

Some of these pin positions today...

Looks like Par will be an exceptional score for round 2.

We went yesterday and it was hot. Like a big latte on the drive down, then a Diet Coke, then bottle of water, then a Modela, then another bottle of water, then a quart of Gatorade, then a glass of wine when we got home. THEN I had to go to the bathroom. And honestly, i should have hydrated more.

Feels like the first real week of summer here in NC. Supposed to be in the 90sF (33C+) all week.
