Rory McIlroy not happy as heavy rough is reduced for US Open

Vera Richards | 15 June, 2017, 02:22

ERIN, Wisconsin The U.S. Open is always billed as the ultimate test in golf due to course conditions but this week could also be one of the toughest logistical challenges as the major comes to Erin Hills for the first time. "I think that's a fair thing to say". I sure hope so.

"I have got married and there is the time off due to the injuries, so it has been kind of a amusing sort of five or six months".

"And that's why I like tougher conditions, because it constantly tests that barrier to see if I can push even further and further and further mentally and physically with regards to playing tough venues such as the U.S. Open like this". While he has spoken of his disappointment about that rejection, he emphasized Tuesday that he knew all along it was a long shot and holds no grudges. "They said with it being Wisconsin, there are going to be a lot of thunderstorms, either way; they just don't know when". I don't feel like I have to hit balls all day to be a great player. Expect well known, or big name, golfers to carry slightly more ownership than projected. "That benefits a few guys, and luckily I'm one of them". Lee Westwood had fun with his caddie, Billy Foster, filming him getting lost in the rough. Without an exemption, Stricker had to go through the qualifying stages to get into the field. "And I think that's the way you have to approach anything that doesn't go right: 'How can we make it better? No one gave me a spot, where if somebody would've given me a sponsor's spot I would've felt like I owed somebody something".

"I don't feel like it's a secret that I feel like my driver is one of the biggest weapons in my bag", said the 2011 U.S. Open victor at Congressional.

"A lot of people might have laid up or tried to give themselves a better chance to make par, finish second or get nearly all the money needed to take the card", he said. Rahm has such passion for how he plays that his emotion can get the best of him. "That's my goal, to get in contention and see what happens". Barring a lengthy first-round rain delay, Mickelson won't be able to make his 2:20 p.m. tee time. He has had big galleries for his practice rounds as the state's golf community rallies behind its favorite son.

Day on Tuesday revealed plans to come back to his home country and tee up at either the Australian Open in Sydney (November 23-26) or the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast a week later. "The ovation I got when I went up on No. 9 yesterday ... yeah, it's pretty cool".

"My expectations going into Whistling, I was playing well". But it's special to be here. I don't feel like my body is limiting me from doing what I want to do out there.

"I don't remember much from 2011". "He's good for Wisconsin golf". The people are fantastic. And actually, I absolutely love the golf course.

Sweden's Henrik Stenson then landed his breakthrough major at the British Open before Jimmy Walker closed out 2016 with the PGA Championship.

The course is located at southern end of the Kettle Moraine, a dramatic landscape that was shaped by glacier activity millions of years ago.

"There's no need to injure my wrist before I tee off", he said. "I just look forward to hopefully having my best finish ever in a major".
