TOO MUCH NOISE
The griping and bleating from certain players that Shinnecock Hills was set up too hard for them during the US Open made my blood boil.
They do realise that golf isn’t meant to be easy, don’t they? The ultimate aim of any major championship is – or should be – to find the most suitable winner, a man who can come to terms with the course set up and the conditions and outperform every other player in the field. It isn’t and never was meant to be easy.
Now admittedly the USGA got the set up wrong and overstepped the mark in places, but the sound of multi-millionaire golfers bleating that it was all too hard and not very fair made me choke.
It’s like Rocco Mediate very wisely said: If you don’t like how the course was set up and you don’t like how you’re scoring, hit better shots. Steven Michaels, Email
