Was Chambers Bay Fit to Host the US Open?

There’s something magical about watching a group of professionals tearing into a golf course. If you ever have the chance to follow a world-class golfer around one of the planet’s great courses, take it. The way they go after fairways, attack greens, drop shots beside pins and then spin them back to within putting distance is a sight to behold. Watching a golfer make a mockery of a course’s supposed “par” score is one of the great experiences in sport.
That being said, there’s also something deliciously satisfying about seeing a group of professionals clambering their way around a course and being as baffled by it as the rest of us. If you enjoy your golf with a healthy dose of schadenfreude, you will have enjoyed the US Open this weekend.
