USGA apologizes for unfair course in 3rd round of US Open

Zach Johnson plays a shot from a bunker on the 18th hole during the second round of the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club Dustin Johnson Majors: Has DJ Won One?

A bogey at the fourth was followed by three straight bogeys at six, seven and eight to make the turn six-over for the day and two-over for the tournament.

But then there was Ian Poulter, who more than anyone was robbed on 15 and after playing what seemed to be the ideal bunker shot on 15 but only to look on in total amazement when his ball kept rolling, and rolling, and rolling before coming to rest some 60-feet beyong the flag and now off the green from where "Poults" took bogey on route to a round of 76 for a share of 10th place at seven-over. "You take the two shots and you move on". "I enjoy playing about the toughest in golf you are ever going to play".

Right behind them will be the last two U.S. Open champions. Mr. Kwon describes himself as a "recreational" golfer and said he and his family typically play golf at Poxabogue Golf Center in Sagaponack on Father's Day.

The course was very playable in the morning, as attested by matching rounds of 66 by Daniel Berger and Tony Finau, but it was a different beast in the afternoon after the winds and low humidity baked the greens to a crisp.

"Sometimes it gets a little goofy, sure", he said, "but it's all within the rules". Mickelson's wife said that he offered to withdraw after what happened in round three. I've had multiple times where I've wanted to do that. The fiasco unfolded on Mickelson's 48th birthday. He was serenaded with "Happy Birthday" at almost every green, and even after four consecutive bogeys the fans were supportive. It's just how it goes. His swat sent the ball off the hole. That's a two-shot penalty, giving him a 10. Or, worse, yet, run miles beyond the hole when the player in question has a putter in his hand. "I should have done it several times at Augusta on 15", he said.

Andy Kwon of New York City and Southampton attended on Sunday with his three children, Nathan, 7, Hazel, 6, and 18-month-old James. It's pretty much shot, which is unfortunate, because it's - in my opinion - some of the best land and certainly one of the best venues in all of golf, specifically in this country.

If Fleetwood completes the comeback and wins his first major, he would be just one stroke off the biggest final-round comeback in U.S. Open history.

Justin Rose: I've never seen a course change so quick. "It was unusual, no one ever has those thoughts, it just happens". It held the second U.S. Open in 1896, and then went 90 years until its next one. Daly was on No. 8 in the final round when he took an 11 on the hole and signed for an 81. I feel for the spectators because they are seeing pure carnage - unless that's what they want. That made for a 14, a total of 83 in the first round, and a withdrawal. The players made preparations to play on a course like this. Watching the ball trickle past the hole and headed off the green, the veteran literally trotted up to his ball and hit it back toward the cup while it was still in motion. Tiger Woods is playing the U.S. Open for the first time since 2015. After three more pars following the meltdown, he bogeyed 17, then parred 18.

"Look, I don't mean disrespect to anybody", he said. Fair enough. But how much pleasure is there in watching the world's best golfers hit what they believe to be ideal shots, only to look on in horror as balls roll off the front of putting surfaces or fall off the back of greens?
