It was certainly more like watching a British Open than a US Open -- lots of bump and run shots and putting from 10yds off the green. I did enjoy it but was atypical look for a US Open.
I do think that the slope/contours of the greens were pretty severe given the speeds. And I suspect that just as how they are changing the grass on the greens to something more sustainable ( bent to Bermuda) right after the tourney, that they might flatten some of the contours to make the greens more playable for paying customers.
That said, it was only those crazy contours that saved the 'score' - only 3 finished under par.
