Rough looks pretty thick, how much heavier than normal is it? They played a ladies professional tournament at our course a couple of years ago and the only real difference was the green speed.
Hey Dan! Barrie native here.
Rough is much thicker than usual(almost shoe-eating ), green speeds are normally fast so they dont need to do much, if anything at all. I watched him stimp this morning. Of course working here, I would love to see the ball run for days on that thing, but if they do get faster throughout the week, these guys will have a great test of golf on their hands.. All they really do for this event is grow the rough, move the tees back a little, and setup the stands.
A bunch of guys, including some big named players, last year called it US-Open ready, which made us all pretty proud of what we have here and what we work hard to achieve.
