The U.S. Open Golf Tournament is now being played at the Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. It will finish today 06/19/2016. The only golf tournament that could possibly rival the U.S. Open was played not long ago. That was the Masters Golf Tournament held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta Georgia.
The following description is something that typically happens at the U.S. Open Golf Tournament to long ball hitters. The drive lands about 10 feet from the hole. Then it rolls back 30 yards onto the fairway. You hit it again to about the same range, and that rolls back. So on the third time hitting the green it stays on the green. You make a bogey. This is typical of play on a U.S. Open course, the professionals are tested to the maximum on every shot on every hole.
Dustin Johnson is the winner of the 2016 U.S. Open.
When I was still playing golf quite well. It was over in Japan in the Commanders Cup Golf Tournament. I drove a green on a hole that was 340 yards long. Then I walked up and proceeded to make three putts on that hole. Being a long ball hitter and driving the green doesn’t always have a whole lot to do with a good score, being entered on your score card. Golf is a great game. I envy anyone with the ability to be able to get out and play golf. It is one game, where you are truly challenging your self to produce your best each time you play..
