156 of the world’s best golfers, including 4 former Georgia Bulldogs, are about to tee it up in the major tournament for those who love to see professionals made to look like amateurs.
Shinnecock awaits, a course that’s always there when the USGA decides it’s time to smite everyone with the temerity to break par.
Brian Harman will be the first ‘Dawg off the tee at 7:29 am, followed by Bubba playing with defending champ Brooks Koepka and Jason Day.
Russell Henley hits the links at 12:52 pm. Kevin Kisner unfortunately won’t play until 1:58 pm, and is likely to find some nice, crispy greens to putt on. Call me crazy, but I expect those playing late to find the going difficult. And by difficult I mean aggressively penal.
