Play starts this morning on of the traditional USO courses, this one a links style track on the east end of Long Island. The course has been lengthened and fairways widened a bit since the last visit there in 2004. Winds are predicted to 20 mph gusts for all 4 rounds. Iron control and a good short game will be at a premium with the very tricky conditions and the steep drop offs around the green. Dustin Johnson looked great winning Memphis going away this past weekend. Rory Baggins loves a windy links setting. Tiger Woods continues his odyssey and has won an Open on Long Island at Bethpage Black. Defending champion Brooks Koepka has looked so-so in his rehab from a wrist injury. The Five Jays (Spieth, Thomas, Rose, Rahm, Day) are all poised in the top 10. Rickie Fowler needs a major! Who ya got for the second major of the year?
