The 115th playing of the U.S. Open Championship is shaping up to be one that will be remembered for all time. The course, Chambers Bay, is for the most part unknown by the players and caddies. Only a few players in this Open also competed at the 2010 U.S. Amateur.
In typical U.S. Open fashion, the 610-acre former sand and gravel quarry, should provide the world's best all they can handle as they traverse the dried out humps and bumps of Chambers Bay!
Here are a few of our favorite images from the practice rounds.

Jimmy Walker took home the Frys.com Open with a final round 66 that left him two clear of the field.
Entering the day in a tie for fourth, thanks to a third round 9-under par 62, Walker needed a solid Sunday performance to have any shot at the title. Walker came out of the gate making two birdies on the first four holes before turning in three under par 32. On the back nine Walker added two more birdies to race to the top and take home the title.
The 54-hole leader, 23 year old Challenge Tour player Brooks Koepka had a fresh outlook on not protecting his the lead, "I just didn't make the shots I needed to win. Congrats to Jimmy on that. He played very well. But just try to learn from the whole experience. Any time you can put yourself in that kind of pressure, it's always good. It you take something from it, that's even better."
The win comes In his eighth season and his 188th tournament. It also earns Walker a spot in the 2014 Masters Tournament, "I felt like I was good enough to be in them, play in them," Walker said. "There's always this big pressure to get into Augusta, and I would press here, press there. You want to be playing in the big stuff. That's what I'm aspiring to do -- play against the world's best."
