ERIN -- The elephant on the golf course Saturday at Erin Hills, where there is enough room to house a fleet of them in addition to all of the birdies and eagles that are already there, was that this U.S. Open Championship has a far different feel than the 116 that have come before it.


A lot has changed about the U.S. Open since Andy North played in his first one in 1975 at Medinah CC near Chicago. But one thing hasn’t changed: Winning the U.S. Open still changes careers, if not lives, and there isn’t a player in the field who wouldn’t want to try that feeling on for size early Sunday evening.

In a video posted to the USGA Twitter account, Davis said Sunday that sustained winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph were more than USGA officials anticipated in preparation for a firm, fast golf course. He indicated that Erin Hills staff would need to up amounts of water applied to the course overnight, especially on the large green complexes.


The Madison golfer earns a berth in his 20th U.S. Open by shooting 67 at Ridgeway CC and then at Germantown CC and finishing off an unforgettable day by sticking his approach shot to the 18th green to within inches of the cup and tapping in for a birdie for a one-shot victory over six other golfers.
