As Erin Hills is finally showing its teeth with the wind blowing 20+ mph for the final round... Roy McAvoy: "Keep shooting pars, asshole!" Dave Simms: "I'll take 18 of them, all day long!" Roy McAvoy: "Do it and I'll own you."
"Erin Hills shows that modern golf architects can build golf courses that ask players to answer questions. There's a lot of strategy out there.

The picturesque 135 yard 9th hole is capturing plenty of attention this week at the US Open. “I just like the fact that it’s a pitching wedge shot and it literally strikes terror into great players,” said co-designer Dana Fry.
One week and counting until the first round of the #USOpen at @erinhillsgolf. Look forward to trekking out to the far west end of the course next Saturday to see the action on holes 14-15-16 pictured here. Swipe 👈
