Looks like the USGA is continuing the trend to 'links' type courses for the U.S.Open. This is a very nice looking track; similar to Shinnecock Hills in some respects.

Anybody see Wesley Bryan twitter vid of him dropping a ball in the grass and showing it disappear?

 

I can find it on CBS and PGA but I can't link it as it is in Twitter links and it is blocked at work.

Will be interesting to see how they manage spectators - they will trample that fluffy stuff flat and ruin it - could help the pros if they aim for the onlookers

Mouldy wouldn't even make the fairway with his drive on most of the holes. 

Kiwi would get lost in the rough
