The first day was littered with speculation. How hard will the course be at Chambers Bay? How will the pros fare on these browned out greens. (Just ask Sergio how he feels). The day however had its ups and downs from Shanks and Chunks to great shots and near Aces. “Mashed Potatoes and Bababooie” were yelled far too many times. I mean seriously its time for something new at least. When Dustin Johnson hits his tee shot someone should just Yell BOOM! and that is it change it up.
The Fox Sports Network was definitely different to watch they were promising all sorts of new angles, graphics etc. I caught most of the viewing on Fox Sports 1 yesterday so today I will pay more attention to the US Open on Fox. I would have liked to hear someone other than Joe Buck. I don’t know sometimes its tough to listen to an announcer, many others have shared my opinio on Reddit, Facebook and Twitter.
There have been grades passed to golfers from A’s (Dustin Johnson) to F’s ( Tiger Woods and everything in between. A shout out is necessary for Cole Hammer who I thought played with great Poise for a 15 year old. He shot a first round 77 3 shots better than the legend himself Tiger Woods. He nearly opened his round with a quick birdie. Good Luck today Cole!
