I’m Legitimately Worried Golfers’ Arms Will Rip Clean Off During The U.S. Open

It’s not officially U.S. Open Week until a Tour pro takes to social media to complain about green speeds or makes a video tossing his ball into the rough. Last year, Justin Thomas was our ribbon cutter at Oakmont, and now the torch has been firmly passed to Kevin Na to light the opening ceremony flame for Erin Hills.

Keen observation, David. Na (like most competing this weekend) is not exactly the most physically imposing dude walking around Wisconsin. I mean that fescue didn’t give an inch. To these beanpoles, this tall stuff might as well be a brick wall. Someone’s going to try their darndest to get out, swing as hard as humanly possible, and, at the very least, dislocate both shoulders in the process. No doubt Na has to be the odds on favorite for this unfortunate fate. Maybe get on that Rory gym grind, my man.

That said, I can’t wait for another crowd-pleasing U.S. Open with guys trying to get up and down to save bogey or lag putting their way to victory. Nothing grows the game quite like course management and defensive golf.
