U.S. Open at Chambers Bay: 'Luck was all but everything and skill was close to nought'

U.S. Open at Chambers Bay: 'Luck was all but everything and skill was close to nought'

John Huggan of the Scotsman looks back at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay and finds it lacking: “This column is all for making golf more interesting and fun by encouraging the ‘ground game’ that is so often absent from the PGA and European Tours. But there is a fine line between fun and farce. And last week [USGA Executive Director Mike] Davis travelled too far down the right road. The combination of goofy greens, firm turf and sometimes-daft pin positions at times diminished the championship to a point where luck was all but everything and skill was close to nought. Too much of a good thing too often threatened to spoil the spectacle.”
