Play Suspended at US Open

After 3 hours and 15 minutes play was suspended at the 109th US Open. 78 players made it onto the course, none made it past 11 holes.

On an already soaked course, with steady rains and torrents of water running through the fairways it became apparent to USGA officials the course was unplayable. Play will resume Friday weather permitting.

    The weather forecast does not look promising. Rain is to begin around noon and continue through 6PM Saturday in the NY, NY/Farmingdale area and then rain is in the forecast everyday through Wednesday.

    Make the players “man up” and play anyway is what I say, but what do I know.

    US Open Round 1

    Mike Weir’s 64 was the round of the day, but it didn’t last long as round 2 is underway and currently Lucas Glover has the honors thru 12. Some of the players will not get round 2 started today and it us unlikely that any will finish due to darkness rapidly approaching. I was watching the group of Els, Mickelson and Goosen and I can’t see how they can continue much longer tonight. Ernie had a tough first round with an 8 over par 78 and is currently 11 over. I for one will be sorry to see him miss the cut, which right now is all speculation as the officials can not really determine where the cut will fall until at least most of the players have finished round 2, as he stands now he is T152 so it is a fair estimate that he will in fact not make the cut. Tiger hasn’t started his round 2 yet but unless he gets going he himself could miss it, as he is 4 over at 74 on his 1st round.

    Who isn’t tired of hearing the announcers complain about the playing conditions? Those of us who spend our time on the public courses know full too well what it is like. Ball marks, divots and link like fescue are something we deal with all the time, get over it and play golf, or let the players play and report it. It’s the US Open anything can happen and anyone could win, even an amateur.

    Mike Weir has another bogey and has fell to 4 under, Lucas Glover is still in control of round 2 at 6 under and Ricky Barnes is alone in 2nd place at 5 under. It appears that they have stopped play for today. I suppose that the USGA officials are doing the best they can but it is frustrating and seems somewhat disorganized. Makes it tough for the fantasy league’s as they must decide who to bench and who to play before everyone gets through the round. I believe if the weather cooperates that they still have a good chance for a Sunday finish once the cut is made there will be less players to shuffle. The drawback for the players will be a long day tomorrow and Sunday though.
