Geoff Shackelford Breaks Down US Open Setup
By Kickntrue on 6/16/10
Geoff Shackelford is a golf course architect (as well as being one of the best golf bloggers on the net) and he had a chance to check out Pebble Beach a put together a short video of how the setup will come into play this week. One fun tidbit to entice you to check out the video- Geoff talks about the par 3, 7th, that's so brutal that they're talking about playing it at under 100 yards. To think they'd play a US Open par 3 at a pitch and putt distance- UNREAL. The greens may be a bit different though. :)

If you don't read Goeff's site on a regular basis, you're missing out.

perfect.
Wifey n I gonna set ourselves up behind the green @#6.
Looks like a good view of entire #7 and #8 tee.
Then maybe we'll walk along w/ Phil and Lee for a bit.

Now if the sun would just peek out for a bit.

Vijay might get upset at his terrible play on the first tee and quit the round. Let's just hope anyways.

Under 100 yards is crazy short for the U.S. open! Wow.

#7 is 100 yds worth of 6 iron when the wind is coming in, watch it all 4 days and you will see about everything used on that hole through the tourny...

Good stuff on his site, but the site looks like a trade journal, so it's a bit of a drag to sift through.
