Mandatory caddies on Lido and no drinking during play allowed.  Only 10 foursomes a day are currently allowed out.  Definitely sounds like a unique golf experience and very different from the other Sand Valley tracks where debauchery is allowed

The amount of High Noon I see consumed at Sand Valley is definitely something

Good.  Drinking on the golf course is a scourge that should be snuffed out.
It won't be at Pinehurst next week, that I can tell you.  ;)

Looks like 150 out of 156 have qualified for 2024 US Open. Last six spots held for top 60 at Memorial who otherwise weren’t other wise eligible and first alternates .

Amazing how many Amateurs qualify for this event each year .

I am very anti drinking on the golf course, especially for anyone playing ahead of me. I would say that I probably have drank 1-2% of the rounds I have played in my life and that might be high. For the most part I will drink in a scramble or a rare exception late in a round if I am playing poorly or extremely long round. Now, hanging around for hours after golf and drinking is highly encouraged by me.

I will do the social sip off someone's flask during an outing, but that is it these days.   The last time I bought a beer off a cart girl was 2008.    Annual firefighter golf trip, that year at Treetops.   In the middle of the round, the phones started ringing.   A helicopter had crash landed on the roof of the hospital downtown, causing a fire.  My wife narrated it for me for 3-4 minutes.    Next tee, 8 of us are milling around and the cart girl arrives.   We all got a drink and toasted not being at work.

I have more than enough trouble on the golf course without drinking alcohol. I have no problem if others do it, though, as long as they don't overindulge and ruin the experience of others on the course.

Morikowa has been in solid form all year and has been in contention in the Majors. Pinehurst may be where he breaks through. His ability with irons will be an important asset.

I thought we were talking about the US Open next week.  Drinking every day at Pinehurst won't make me a bad guy. ;)

Everything has been cracked out. Each course removed beverage stands and no more liquor is served.

The Lido is incredible.

Scheffler won Memorial Tournament with Morikowa second

I think Morikowa is ready to break through at Pinehurst. Has the precision iron game necessary to compete well.

Scheffler is at a completely different level though. Seems like he has to make some mistakes early for anyone to be able to build a lead over him.

The risk with betting on Scottie is you never know when that criminal will strike again.

Scottie,Rory, and Xander playing together the first two rounds.   Rory needs to play like it is the Ryder Cup.  Or he repeats his early round struggles and gets lapped.

McIlroy has unfortunately not been able to put 4 decent rounds in a row at Majors. Always seems to have one doen day and then he is not in contention on Sunday back nine.

Here are all the tee times . JT, Morikowa and Koepka is an Excellent threesome.

Going from Valhalla to Pinehurst in the major schedule is quite the polar opposites.

Expecting some whining through the course of the week.  Going to eliminate those guys from serious contention.  Sounds like it’s going to be hot with no rain in the forecast.  Things should get crispy.  Going to have to water those greens, though, to keep them playable

Playing only 54 holes makes you soft.

@MartySmithESPN
BREAKING NEWS: 2x Major Champion Jon Rahm has decided to withdraw from the US Open at Pinehurst, due to an infected sore located between the little toe and the next toe on his left foot, sources close to Rahm tell me.
I'm told the infection is healing with antibiotic treatment, but Rahm remains in pain and does not want to compete in a tournament in which he does not believe he is physically capable of winning.

If he doesn’t win a major soon, it’s not his toes he’ll have to worry about

Saudi’s are paying him to win majors and legitimize their sports washing.  Like when Rahm hired some muscle to rough up DJ before the Masters a few years ago for hitting on his fiance, the Saudi’s aren’t to be trifled with

Smart Move. Needs to get healthy . As Rahm points out he could screw his swing up compensating .

Would rather see a guy withdraw than take up a place in the field and quit after 9 holes .

Is Scheffler a potential 10+ Majors guy?  I don't watch men's golf anymore but was just curious if people think he's the real deal?  Because we thought the Rory and Speith would win about 10.
