Thursday from the U.S. Open: Mad about low scores, Rickie, Rory, Scottie, DJ, and more
Andy and Brendan review the first day of the U.S. Open at LACC’s North Course, where scores hit record numbers for this championship thanks to Xander Schauffele and Rickie Fowler, who both shot 62. They discuss the general backlash and anger about scores this low at a U.S. Open and if there is any credence to the complaints. Andy relays some notes from following the fun group of Max Homa and Scottie Scheffler, while Brendan relays his argument and theory on why Rickie’s career path got stunted by a shift in the game. DJ’s round is given a debrief, as is Rory’s close with a “bogey save,” and lastly Phil’s charge hitting a roadblock at the sixth. Some favorite holes and shots are also outlined, as well as what to expect with scoring and setup for the next three days.
