Golf Channel To Cover U.S. Open Qualifying
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/30/13
They are calling it "golf's longest day." And for over 50 reporters, photographers, and producers, it may well be that.
Golf Channel has announced that they will deploy all of those reporters, staff, and their anchor team to report from 13 U.S. Open qualifying sites this coming Monday, June 3, for results of the one-day, 36-hole sectional. And for those of you who can follow the festivities from your computer or smart-phone, Golf Channel will stream content live on their web site and on their mobile app.
Admit it: At one point or another in life, most of you have wondered what it would be like to enter local qualifying for the U.S. Open. In all seriousness, it may quite fascinating to see how ordinary amateur golfers and experienced professionals handle the pressure of trying to play their respective way into this national championship.
Without a doubt, "Golf's Longest Day" will be far more compelling television than watching some retired sports figure receive a yellow card for exceeding his daily catch limit on the latest episode of "All-Star Fishing" on ESPN4.

I admit it. Actually when I was growing up my dad said he wanted to caddy for me on sunday at the US Open (been playing since I was 5).
I know that will never happen. But I did tell him I have a goal of getting down to a 1.4 handicap in the next 5 years so he can caddy for me during the regional qualifying round. That is still a very lofty goal (which I dont really intend to hit) but we will see how it goes.
JF: That's a fantastic goal! Maybe I'll see you there!

J-Fish: I'm envious; I would be plenty happy to get to single digits.
