Golf World Watches as U.S. Open Approaches

Just one more week until the 2015 U.S. Open Championship begins at Chambers Bay Golf Course near Tacoma, Washington.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Bruce Charleton, rumors abound about how difficult the newly opened golf course will be.

The USGA will add its touch of evil to an already tough golf course, and the results should be spectacular.

Consider the performances of golf’s top tier over the last few weeks: Tiger’s 85 in the final round of the Memorial, which he has won five times; McIlroy’s 80 and missed cut in the Irish Open; and Fowler’s “8” – “8” finish in the third round of the Irish Open.

If these are typical scores of golf’s best on “normal” tour-level golf courses, what in the world will Chambers Bay produce?!

Don’t know about you, but I’ll be glued to the flatscreen for most of the coverage beginning on Thursday. Wonder what the Nielsen ratings will be on this one?
