The U.S. Open has begun. The bastion of tradition, maintaining direction in the face of changing social pressures!

Or not?!

Split tees?! Since when?! Did they do this last year? I thought this was one tournament where everyone played the course as it was designed!

And a two-hole aggregate-score playoff?! UGH!!

I remember 2008, when after being tied after the 4th round, the players played an 18-HOLE playoff the next day, then kept going in sudden death. On a broken leg! This is, after all, the NATIONAL championship!

What's next - a card-off? A coin flip?

SAD!

I count 17 different major winners who shot 75 or worse in the opening round.

Even with the U.S. Open having the most stringent standards for the cut (Only top 60 and ties), +8 was one of the highest cut lines in the modern era.

If they went top 70 and ties like a normal tournament, the +9's would have been safely in for the weekend.

Looks like the final count was 15 major champions who missed the cut...

The goal is long and straight! But on the many times I cannot seem to hit them straight, I at least want to hit them long!

Scorecards resemble the In and Out menu board

Double double single triple...

Or my scorecard on any given Sunday on the "easy" courses.

Got that one wrong Lary1, a TW fan; care lil about Rory; shows how one shot (his approach on one) can sink an entire tournament.
