Ep 136 - US Open 2017 Preview

June 13, 2017

It's US Open week and we're here to preview the 117th edition taking place at Erin Hills Golf Club in Wisconsin. We break down the golf course, an unknown to the vast majority of the field and identify the challenges faced by the players this week, what skills and attribrutes they'll need to put themselves into contention and what they'll need to avoid doing that could ruin their chances and the weather conditions they'll face. We then pull this all together into a few of our fancies for the week as well as talking about the big guns and some fairytale outsiders. It's always one of the most fascinating and story filled tournaments of the year, and this one promises no different.
