    The US Open in Wisconsin this year is a joke. It is suppose to be a test of the best golfers in the world but it is just a birdie fest. It would be more interesting watching a putt putt tournament. Would not bet against someone winning this fiasco with a score of 30 under par.

    I'll give you 10-1 no one wins with below 15 under par.

    15 under par is more like the Quad Cities open, not the US Open. The USGA has made this course so easy to appease these high priced whinny golfers, it's not even worth a minute of my time.

    Here is an interesting stat. In the 116 previous US opens, only six players have ever reached 10 under par. Going into today's round we have five players at this joke of a course 10 under par. The USGA should be ashamed of itself. This US Open should be renamed the Little Sisters of the Poor golf tournament. Sad.

    Yes, the organizers could have done a better job here. I like watching golf though. Ir's my way of mentally "checking out"

    Is it too late to get in on the action?

    Not at all, though the odds have changed a bit.

    It is now 1/1000000000000000000000000000 on.

    What is interesting is that the best the pros can do at a nothing course near Washington DC last week is 7 under par whereas the winner at the US open is 16 under par.

    Perhaps they should move the open to this course. I'm hoping the British Open will be a bit more challenging but I doubt it. The PGA championship is the only major that gives these whinny pros even a bit of a challenge.

    As a footnote the winning score in the Senior Open was something like 19 under par. These so called majors have no bite in them anymore. Wide fairways, flat greens, no hazards, no rough, par 4's you can drive, might as well just call it putt putt and be done with it.

    Yep!!!

    Oh the Fescue!!! Idiots.

    Always love that ball trickling into the water at Augusta after you think they made a centre of the green shot
