The greens at Chambers Bay this week have been a serious point of contention amongst players. Ernie Els called them, "the worst," he's played on in his career. Sergio Garcia said via his Twitter account that they're, "just as bad as the look on TV."
Not exactly ringing endorsements.
We've seen plenty of examples already of well-struck putts that seem to have a mind of their own.
Like this one from Darren Clarke. How did that not drop in the hole?
Fast, bumpy greens just aren't a good combination.
The players who will succeed this week are the ones who will recognize they're going to have bad breaks like everyone else and just keep the tough holes at a manageable number.
