The 116th U.S. Open, golf's second major and our national champioship, begins Thursday at the Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. With storylines abundant, the golf world is already buzzing about what could possibly happen this weekend at one of the toughest courses in U.S. Open history.
But before the world's best tee-off, some players and media members have taken to Twitter and Instagram to give fans one final look into the course, the local happenings, and much more.
The driveable par-4, 8th at Oakmont will be a birdie opportunity for most players, including Bubba Watson.
Wait, it's a par-3?
Is that even allowed?
Sorry, Byeong. It's not stopping.
If you haven't heard about Oakmont's brutal rough yet, you've really been missing out. I think some golfers should just hit five-iron off the tee to almost guarantee hitting the fairway. And when I say "some golfers," I mean every golfer.
I went Black Friday shopping. Once.
Five-iron, Henrik. Trust me.
Matt Kuchar. The people's golfer.
Happy Father's Day, Bob Koepka...and to all the Dad's out there, including mine.
