There is not a lot of room to miss at Erin Hills for this week's U.S. Open, as Kevin Na demonstrated in an Instagram post on Sunday.

The USGA prides itself on providing the sternest test in all of golf for the U.S. Open each year. In no other major is there such a premium put on "par."

Na, playing a practice round, gives us a good look at the first cut of rough -- about 3-4 yards -- before it suddenly grows into a thick, nasty fescue.

Check out Na's mini-rant here:

After missing the green with his approach shot on the opening hole at TPC Southwind in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic on Sunday, Daniel Berger found himself in some heavy rough.

Despite getting some good club on the ball in the gnarly stuff, Berger misjudged how far the ball would travel and came up woefully short of the green.

No big deal. From 25 feet away, Berger would chip in to save a ho-hum par:
