Worst golf coarse ever for the US Open. What were they thinking?

It is a pain watching this golf tournament. I feel sorry for the players having to play this ill thought out coarse.

I would rather watch them where around par is the winner than -25.

Some courses are just too easy for professional golfers.

I expect by the time a golfer makes the PGA or LPGA, should be able to handle any golf course placed in front of them.
Each course for US Open has been approved by the PGA.

Of all major tournaments the 2 I enjoy the most are British Open (the elements can play a role) & US Open (because it's not a set course).

I agree that all majors should be challenging, but the USGA has turned this tourney into a pure luck event as opposed to a skill event.

PGA golfers (along with every golfer) has both skill & bit of luck.
Every golfer (on the PGA & LPGA tour) & their caddy should be doing their homework & complete walk threw of the course ahead of time.
Please send your concerns to USGA

Here is an article I found:

Just as I was posting Tiger went from the leader to 1 back of 3 others.

Hey, three strokes back at the British open, a number of top ten and top five finishes and now the Tour Championship (almost the FedEx). Can hardly wait to see if his comeback continues next season. Go Tiger, go! (but keep your club in the bag)
