Golf Fans Are Roasting The USGA For Making The US Open Way Too Easy

The US Open is known for being incredibly difficult, almost too penal at times. Historic championships in recent years like Winged Foot in 2006, Oakmont in 2007, and Shinnecock Hills in 2018 have finished with the winning score over par, with players looking poorly.

The clips of some of the lies that players have had to hit out of and the ridiculous slopes on greens at the US Open in the past are comical. Take a look at this incredible example.

Entering this week’s US Open at Los Angeles Country Club, no one expected a winning score like the +5 that won in back-to-back years in 2006 and 2007. But, many expected the long, par-70 course to more than hold up against the best players in the world. It did not. It was a bloodbath out there if you’re a fan of the course. Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele both broke the US Open scoring records with rounds of 62, breaking the old record by a shot.

Currently, the cut line is at an incredibly low +1 heading into round 2. Surely, the USGA will make adjustments to the course in terms of mowing the greens closer, watering the rough, and tough pin placements to make sure the course isn’t embarrassed again. In the meantime, the memes and criticism of the USGA for their US Open setup are out in full force.

Those are some GREAT memes. The tournament continues through Sunday.
