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.
On the Web.com Tour, Edward Loar became the first player on a professional tour to win in M:Project from FJ. The lefties 17-under par total was good enough for a two stroke victory over fellow FJ staffer, Morgan Hoffman.
Loar stated post round, "They’re all hard to win especially having to battle the elements today."
Hoffman also spoke volumes of his fellow Oklahoma State alum's play, "He knows his game right now. He’s a great player and a great guy. He knows how to handle it and I congratulate him.”
The win moves Loar to number one on the Web.com Tour money list.,"It’s a great start to the year. I think everyone’s goal is to be No. 1 out here,” said Loar of his new position on tour. This is Loar's second career win on the Web.com Tour.
