    Well when they seemingly ruined Chambers bay that was pretty bad. Is boycotting worth it, i doubt it. I’d also assume sponsors wouldn’t be too pleased if they did.

    Im not necessarily a huge fan of the USGA in general, so whatever.

    I'm all for the US Open being difficult, but I think the USGA goes overboard in the wrong places. I have no issue with the players bringing attention to it.

    I think it's more the players making noise trying to make a point and hoping the USGA blinks first. At the end of the day, people will complain but I don't see any of the top names skipping the US Open.

    The USGA is a sensational organization which has done great things for the game. If some spoiled brats want to boycott the US Open that is their prerogative.

    Yet don’t trust anyone to post scores while playing alone. I’m sure they have done some great things, but at most times they seem to be run by a bunch of ducks (not an autocorrect).

    Also for the record I am more critical of a course like Bethpage Black being used for a major. That course has super narrow fairways even short. The fairway is 25 yards wide from the start all the way to the green on all those holes. That takes everyone but the 20 longest hitters out of contention. Then it's just the hottest long player to win, which has been Koepka for the last 18 months. At Pebble Beach with a par 70 less than 7100 yard course that relies on positioning to score, everyone that sticks a tee in the ground is going to have a shot to win whether they hit their driver 325 or 270 regardless of how fast the greens are or how long the rough is. If I was the Kisners, Furyks, Hoffmans of the world I would complain about having to play Bethpage for the PGA. Spieth gained more strokes putting at that event than anyone had in on tour in any event for almost 2 years and was still 5 back of Koepka. The Masters is the tournament that awards the trophy to the best bomber, the other tournaments should be more fairly setup for all styles of golf. I will get off my soapbox now LOL!

    The U.S Open is my favorite major to watch because the pros struggle. I can tune into any tournament through the season and see someone at 15 under. Like one of the above posters stated suck it up your a professional and in the end everyone is playing the same conditions.

    Players Boycott US Open

    It’s sad to see the professionals thinking about a boycott due to course setup. End of the day it’s their decision to skip out on one of the most prestigious tournaments and lucrative paychecks, there will always be someone willing to take their place and I will still tune in regardless.

    I cannot fathom Phil missing a chance, at this point in his career, to play in US Opens.

    It is there $$'s they are potentially missing out on, but for the reasons of it being to hard of a set up is just stupid in my opinion You are elite golfers, deal with it.
    Driver Maybe something Flash?
    Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
    Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
    Wedges probably some MD goodness
    probably something that rolls awesome
    an awesone ball
