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.

David Lingmerth won the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide with a par on the third sudden death playoff hole.
Entering the final round three strokes behind the 54-hole lead, Lingmerth shot a final round three under par 69 to enter a two man playoff. Both players split with pars on the first two playoff holes. On the third and final playoff hole Lingmerth split the fairway with his tee shot and his approach shot came to rest 30 feet behind the pin. A routine two putt sealed the victory.
Lingmerth relied on FJ ICON MyJoys golf shoes and the SciFlex Tour golf glove en route to the win.
This is Lingmerth's first PGA Tour victory.
