So as all of these golfers have similarly high levels of skill it's becoming a game of luck.

What if the 18th green IS a UFO? Didn't think of that, did you?

The hell? Why are they double digits under par at a US Open?  Who broke the USGA?

Guelph35: The hell? Why are they double digits under par at a US Open?  Who broke the USGA?


People who complained at Chambers Bay. Perfect weather conditions first few days was a big factor.

Though it was stupid to cut the fescue back even farther Wednesday. I don't like the course really for a US Open. Fairways too wide, don't like par 72 and missing the fairway isn't terribly punishing.

I actually am enjoying it myself.They found the hottest body and put her in charge of a board she cannot handle.Its quite entertaining.

The UFO is there. It's behind the grandstand, protected by its Somebody Else's Problem field.

Number 1 reason golf is unwatchable.  Stupid morons yelling out retarded shiat after every shot.

Fox is piping in bird noises, don't put it past them to put in 'baba booey', 'get in the hole' or 'Spider-Man Homecoming July 7th, go see it!'

If they are piping in bird noises, why can't they filter out the damn blimp!

They have to pipe in the blimp noise too, the crash and burn noise is authentic.

That's not the blimp.  According to the commentators, it's some jackass who keeps buzzing the course.  I think he's towing a streamer (an ad?) - the camera catches it every once in a while.

If I was a player, I'd be fuming.

Yep, small plane dragging a banner. Was even worse yesterday early.

Needs more Holly Sonders.

You don't yell "get in the hole" on a par 3. It's for the tee shot on a par 5.

Baba Booey.

Just caught a commercial for Skechers with Kuch. Dude's sponsors are even generic.
 
2017-06-18 05:24:27 PM  
Kuch is the DL3 of this generation.

Will give DL3 the props for caddying for his son this week.  Kid gawked it up on 18 to miss the cut

I learned it from you!

The Smails Kid: Just caught a commercial for Skechers with Kuch. Dude's sponsors are even generic.


In the commercial, they say he's putting to win "the major championship".

His sponsors have him winning generic tournaments.

Huge putt by Koepka there.  And after what looked like an unforced error with that second shot.
 
2017-06-18 05:51:27 PM  
Steve Stricker is popular in Wisconsin.

Weird.
 
2017-06-18 05:58:26 PM  
Koepka is hunting flagsticks from the rough.

Low amateur is -1, which tells you that this is a weird U.S. Open. -1 occasionally wins the damn thing.

I hope Shinnecock isn't unplayable next year.

I mean i totally predicted the dude I'd never heard of would win it...

DL3 is a major champion. 1997 PGA.

That's the difference between Generic PGA Tour Guy and the next echelon. You win a major, you're no longer Generic, because you proved something for the right 4 days.
 
2017-06-18 07:25:20 PM  
Kuch became Generic Golf Guy a few years ago during a Master's Fark thread.  It stuck.
 
2017-06-18 07:27:38 PM  
Koepka is on fire.

There's Kuch, Kuchin' his way to a generic -5, top-20 finish.

Livin' the dream.

dumbandilikeit: Kuch became Generic Golf Guy a few years ago during a Master's Fark thread.  It stuck.


The context was that we were talking about what a sweet gig being a Generic PGA Tour Golfer would be.

Be rich.
Travel to cool places.
Play golf.
Have a hot wife.
No expectations.
No paparazzi.

Kuch fit the mold, and he's been Kuching upward ever since.

Didn't realize before this week that Koepka had three top-5 finishes in Majors.  Not a flash in the pan.

The young bloods who learned golf because Tiger made the game cool are pretty good.

Koepka is 27. He was 11 during the Tiger Slam. Remember your sports heroes when you were 11? I do.
 
2017-06-18 08:02:57 PM  
Kinda looks like Jim from The Office. Well done Brooks.
