Johnson arrives for US Open after birth of child

It's going to play somewhere around 7,700 yards long. And it's a U.S. Open venue in nearly every sense.

If Spieth sounds like a man who has played Erin Hills in the heat of competition, he has.

McIlroy hit the flawless note with the sentiment "you might as well pack your bags and go home" if typical U.S. Open conditions phase you that much. "That was six years ago and I didn't do the same kind of homework that I do these days with golf courses".

"They should definitely try it if they've never before because it's really fun and I think a lot of people would enjoy it", said Jaeke. I like knowing par is a good score for some reason. "And this would be a cool spot to do it, I know that".

"And if guys can't put it into play within a 50-yard zone I don't think they've got much to complain about". Erin Hills may now be a bit more vulnerable, and starting Thursday we'll find out if scoring is dramatically lower than a typical U.S. Open.

Strange, now working as a television analyst, backed Johnson to complete the double.

The USGA introduced a local rule previous year that if a golf ball or marker moves accidentally, the player puts it back without penalty.

"Wherever DJ plays, he's the longest out there".

"I don't feel like I need a run of events to get back into it", added McIlroy, who has added the Scottish Open to his schedule in between the Irish Open - which his foundation hosts - and the Open at Royal Birkdale.

With Tiger Woods absent, still struggling to resurrect his career after back surgery, and Phil Mickelson likely to skip the tournament to attend his daughter's high school graduation, this year's US Open could mark the end of an era.

"I remember finishing second to Rory (McIlroy) at Congressional".

Dana Fry is one of three designers responsible for Erin Hills and he believes that the ninth hole has a chance to become one of the game's iconic par 3s.

"I think the USGA is very much okay with that and I think that they're looking for a really exciting championship that they'd like to be tough but fair".

"We have 60 yards from the left line to the right line".

Before the U-turn he said numerous 156 players in the field were beaten before the first ball was struck.

Coming to relatively new Erin Hills, which is hosting its maiden major championship, gives the world's best golfers a taste of the unknown this week at the US Open.

One of the likeliest candidates to continue that streak at Erin Hills is 22-year-old Spaniard Jon Rahm, the former amateur world number one.

But heavy rain descended upon Erin Hills and caused delays to Tuesday's practice round - and as a result the USGA made a decision to cut back some of the grass on a few of the holes, which they stated was because they believed it unplayable.

"It's a very hard green with the prevailing wind because it's so flat on the green".

Since winning the US Open in 2011, McIlroy has only recorded one top-10 and one top-25 in five starts at the event.
