After only a few holes on the front nine, the featured group Thursday morning at the US Open is already feeling Oakmont’s bite. Rory McIlroy took two irons off the tee on the first three holes and stands at +2 as a result. Danny Willet and Rickie Fowler are the other two members of that group, and they stand at even and +1 respectively.
The course is firm and fast as expected, but rain last night and in the forecast today means that conditions could change over the early days of the tournament. The greens may be softer as a result of the rain, but the rough will continue to grow and if wet, can be more like wet cement than green grass.
