With only one week remaining until the world's best tee it up at Bethpage Black for the U.S. Open, we read this article in the New York Times about the unique process that allows amateur golfers to play the same course the pros will play. While the rules can be somewhat confusing, ultimately, the best way for you to secure a tee time on the Black course is to spend a night, maybe more, in your car to snag one of the walk-up tee times. You don't have to "know someone," you don't have to empty your bank account...you just have to be dedicated and maybe a little lucky.
So we want to know...would you do it? Would you sleep in your car for the chance to play a U.S Open course? If you have done it, we would love to hear about it. Just click on COMMENTS.
absolutely...might take a while to get the kinks out of my back, but it would be worth it.
As I've slept in my car to play Torrey Pines South I would sleep on the hood of my car to play Bethpage Black.
no doubt 100% yes
